#Thread on NDTV. Everyone wonders why NDTV is anti-government and pro-letifst. Let's see

-61% is held between Pranoy Roy (PR) & Radhika Roy (RR)
-RR is the sister of Brinda Karat -member of Communist P.I (Marxist) and husband of Prakash Karat - ex Gen Sec CPI (M)
-PR is the cousin of Suzanna Arundhati Roy. Everyone knows where her loyalties lie.
- A sizeable chunk is held by companies linked with former Congress M.P & industrialist Naveen Jindal.

See a clear idealogical bias in the shareholding.
Lets get to the management team
-Sonia Singh - Executive Editor is married to Congress leader Ratanjit Pratap Narain Singh.
-Ravish Kumar`s Editor of NDTV Indiabrother Brajesh Kumar is a Congress Leader from Bihar
-Nidhi Razdan Executive editor was alleged to be in an affair with Omar Abduallah
-Sreenivasan Jain, Editor of NDTV 24x7 is the grandson of M. A. Sreenivasan closely associated with the Scindia family of Gwalior (Congress supporters)

Former senior associates include Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai and Vikram Chandra.

Lets get to Controversies
-NDTV, through its foreign subsidiaries, is alleged to have violated Indian tax and corporate laws. NDTV has denied these allegations.
-On 19 November 2015 the ED served ₹2,030 crore (US$280 million) notice to NDTV for alleged violations under the FEMA act
The "Income Tax Appellate Tribunal" (ITAT) has upheld an income tax department finding that promoters of NDTV used their own shell companies to round-trip investments of ₹642 crore (US$90 million) during 2009-10, making them liable for recovery of tax and penalty.
In September 2018, Roy and his wife Radhika were issued show cause notice by SEBI for violation of insider trading regulations. Earlier that year, in the month March they were fined Rs 3 lac each by SEBI for disclosure lapses.
In August 2019, the Central Bureau of Investigation filed a fresh case against Prannoy Roy, his wife Radhika Roy and former NDTV CEO Vikram Chandra for violating FDI rules and routing of tainted money of unknown public servants through shell firms.
SEBI barred Prannoy Roy and his wife Radhika Roy from accessing the securities market for 2 years after an investigation revealed that they concealed material info from shareholders regarding loan agreements and hence they cannot hold management positions in NDTV board.
Lets check some their reporting.

When a wanted sharpshooter surrendered in Bihar, look at how other channels report and how NDTV reported
Check out their reporting when it comes to BJP and an extremist. The word Terr0rist is avoided at every cost when it come to the extremist.
And instead of using Kashmir, NDTV calls it “Indian Controlled Kashmir
They call Arunchal Pradesh a disputed territory
For NDTV, there is no difference between prisoners and radical extremists
Dont miss the narrative when it comes to BJP
Now do you think NDTV style of journalism is un-biased, their financials are clean and their crediblity is great?
Do you think it's only liked by people who hate BJP, communists and urban Naxals, who still get a high thinking of socialism.? Let me know your answers
