The star anchor of NDTV India, Ravish Kumar spoke to Editor-In-Chief of Newslaundry, Madhu Trehan and expressed disappointment over the way JNU crackdown was being covered by various sections of media. Without naming them, Ravish lashed out at few anchors who were polarizing the audience.
He states that anchors are no one for labeling anyone as anti-Indian. He further adds that anchors usually highlight frivolous issues and ignore those that affect common man. He expressed disappointment by stating that anchors hardly visit places where people are in bad condition and are dying of hunger and thirst.
