Recently, the newspaper guy has been delivering the Times of India once or twice a week instead of the normal The Hindu. This has given me an opportunity to evaluate the low standard it sets for itself.
Semi-naked 'stars' and gossip forms a core around which some news is bundled. Last year, the Government took some TOI reporters to court for allegedly lying in a report on Chinese Border incursions. The Editorial of TOI lacks any debate on important issues and touches up on the trivial instead. Page 1 of TIMES GLOBAL qualifies as a porn show, while the business page is mostly irrelevant.
Truly, a newspaper that exists solely for the purpose of selling itself.
