Let’s now come to another famous CNN-IBN
media personality who also writes columns
frequently for Hindustan Times — Karan
Thapar. What you may not know is that the
Nehru family itself is related, through blood and
marriages, to the high-profile Thapar family.
India’s Army chief during the 1962 debacle
against China, Gen. P. N. Thapar, is brother-in-
law of Nayantara Sehgal, the daughter of
Vijaylakshmi Pandit and niece of Jawaharlal
Nehru. Gen. Thapar’s son is pro-Congress
journalist Karan Thapar. Gen. Thapar’s sister is
Romila Thapar, a famous “top” typical JNU
Nehruvian communist ideologue historian, who
gets to write our textbooks and pollute them
with pro-Congress Marxist propaganda.

The woman you mentioned have
always tried to present history in her

She also has done according to her
views. Just because some one with
same views likes her, we need not like
her. She is just another history twister,
the curse of Indian History. This is my
view I don't expect others to join me.

There are certain traders of media.
1. Hindustan Times – Shobhna Bhartia, owner and editor-in-
chief of Hindustan Times is a Congress MP from Rajya
Sabha.
2. Vinod Sharma, HT Political Affairs editor, is essentially a
Congress spokesman on all TV panel discussions, because
once his boss’ term gets over, he will be looking out for her
RS seat next
3. Barkha Dutt and Vir Sanghvi, famous Congress stooges
(and intermediaries for UPA allies) who were exposed in the
Radiagate scandal, and are virtual Congress spokespersons
in their capacities as electronic media personalities, are the
ones who write opinion and op-ed columns most frequently
(once every week) on the editorial pages of HT. In return,
Barkha and Sanghvi are rewarded with Padma Shris and
other monetary compensation by the Nehru dynasty or
Congress party.
4. NDTV’s promoters are Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy.
Radhika’s sister Brinda Karat is a famous CPM leader (well
known for anti-Baba Ramdev views) and Brinda’s husband
Prakash Karat is the CPM Politburo General Secretary (well
known for preferring Congress over BJP). And Prannoy Roy’s
first cousin is the famous far-leftist pro-Maoist-Naxalite pro-
Kashmiri-terrorists “intellectual” Arundhati Suzanna Roy.
5. NDTV’s Barkha Dutt’s reality has already been exposed by
me in above section.
6. NDTV’s Sonia Singh is the wife of Uttar Pradesh Congress
MP, Union minister and ex-princely state ruler, Mr. R. P. N.
Singh, who is one of the fastest rising stars in the Congress
party. If you remember, Sonia Singh is a very high-profile
anchor on NDTV whose pro-Congress anti-BJP bias is
legendary.
7. NDTV’s Nidhi Razdan (high-profile anchor of Left Right

7. NDTV’s Nidhi Razdan (high-profile anchor of Left Right
Centre) is the current girlfriend of J&K CM Omar Abdullah
(after Omar recently divorced his wife of several years and
mother of his two children, Payal). Nidhi Razdan is also
famous for her legendary pro-Congress and anti-BJP bias.
8. CNN-IBN : Rajdeep Sardesai’s wife and co-promoter of
CNN-IBN, Sagarika Ghose, who anchors Face the Nation
and is famous journalist of CNN-IBN (well, her hubby is the
owner-editor-in-chief after all) are famous Congress stooges.
9. Sagarika’s father Bhaskar Ghose was a famous sarkari
babu and was made the chief of Prasar Bharati
(Doordarshan) during Indira and Rajiv regimes. Bhaskar
Ghose was well-known for personal loyalty to the Nehru
dynasty, and now his daughter and son-in-law are rewarded
with their own channel to do Congress propaganda.
10. In fact Sagarika’s extended family even consists of her
aunts Ruma Pal (former Supreme Court justice and a close
friend of the Nehru family) and Arundhati Ghose (former
diplomat and Indian ambassador to various countries,
predictably, under Congress regimes).
11. Let’s now come to another famous CNN-IBN media
personality who also writes columns frequently for Hindustan
Times — Karan Thapar. What you may not know is that the
Nehru family itself is related, through blood and marriages, to
the high-profile Thapar family. India’s Army chief during the
1962 debacle against China, Gen. P. N. Thapar, is brother-in-
law of Nayantara Sehgal, the daughter of Vijaylakshmi Pandit
and niece of Jawaharlal Nehru. Gen. Thapar’s son is pro-
Congress journalist Karan Thapar. Gen. Thapar’s sister is
Romila Thapar, a famous “top” typical JNU Nehruvian
communist ideologue historian, who gets to write our
textbooks and pollute them with pro-Congress Marxist
propaganda.
12. The HIndu – The Worst – N. Ram, owner and editor-in-
chief (till February 2012) of The Hindu, was once a vice
president of the Students Federation of India. SFI is the
students’ wing of the CPM.
13. P. Sainath of the The Hindu (acclaimed journalist well
known for his, again, unsurprisingly, typical left-wing
Nehruvian communism ideology), is the nephew of Congress
politician V. Shankar Giri and the grandson of V. V. Giri, ex-
President of India and famous Congress politician. Giri was
especially known to be one of the first few staunch loyalists of
9/26/2014 Newslaundry – Who owns your media?
http://www.newslaundry.com/2014/02/05/who-owns-your-media-4/ 18/24
especially known to be one of the first few staunch loyalists of
Indira, and whom Indira fielded for President elections against
her own party’s Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy, and who ultimately
became the cause of the first high-profile split in the Indian
National Congress into Congress (O) and Congress (I) —
almost all the pre-independence regional stalwarts split away
to join Congress (O) or form their own state parties, and the
rest including Giri (all the loyalists of the Nehru family staying
on with Indira).
14. Or even what about little known News24 Hindi media
channel? Owned by ex-journalist and editor Rajiv Shukla,
famous Congress MP in Rajya Sabha, Union minister,
industrialist, BCCI vice president and IPL chairman.
15. Or even what about little known Lokmat (and IBN Lokmat)
that is Marathi newspaper (and channel) in Maharashtra?
Owner and editors-in-chief are the brothers Vijay Darda
(Congress MP) and Rajendra Darda (Congress MLA in
Maharashtra, and minister in state govt).
16. Or even the other bigger and smaller media houses, such
as The Times of India and Indian Express, where the Nehru
dynasty has managed to infiltrate its loyalists such as Dileep
Padgaonkar and Shekhar Gupta, who are essentially paid
stooges of the Congress party.
17 Vinod Mehta - Outlook editor has been well known to take
anti BJP stand.
The Congress (in fact just the one single family — the Nehru
dynasty) has been in power for 56 of the last 65 years of
independence. This matters a LOT. Personal relationships
have been built, blackmail-worthy secrets have been spied,
monumental wealth has been accumulated … all by the one
single Nehru dynasty (and its family-business-cum-polit ical-
party aka Congress) that helps it maintain its tight irongrip
over not just the entire Indian mainstream media, but also
deep into our bureaucracy, our governmental institutions, and
even our journalism and mass media colleges and grad
schools.
We have probably not even scratched the surface of the
network of family and personal relationships through which
the Nehru dynasty has completely dominated and controlled
the entire intellectual, historian and journalist landscape of
India. And we haven’t even talked about the monumental
wealth or the blackmailing secrets. All because the one single
dynasty got to rule over India for 60 years uninterrupted. It

matters a LOT.
The typical JNU Nehruvian communist left-libbers ideologues
have really perpetrated some kind of stranglehold on India’s
journalism, media and intellectual space.
Almost all pro-BJP (or even centre-right ideologues)
journalists have been slowly thrown out of their jobs due to
pressure from the Congress and the Nehru family.
Even the great venerable Ramnath Goenka, frustrated and
broken by repeated I-T raids and ED investigations ultimately
had to fire Arun Shourie twice from the Indian Express, which
was once the best Indian newspaper in the 1970s and 80s.
That was the team — Goenka the owner, Shourie the editor,
and S. Gurumurthy the fearless journalist, that brought
political heavyweights like Indira Gandhi down on her knees
and even took on corporate honchos like Dhirubhai Ambani.
(Ramnath Goenka inspired the Mithun Chakraborty character
and S. Gurumurthy inspired the R. Madhavan character in the
Ambani biopic “Guru”.)
But very few centre-right ideologues are left in India’s media
space today, that too in minor publications like The Pioneer.
Almost all the mainstream media houses have been
thoroughly infiltrated and coerced into towing the Congress’
line, sometimes just through ideology and relationships, and
not even money power.
The Congress party essentially owns and controls every
single mainstream media house in India, including Hindustan
Times, The Times of India, NDTV, CNN-IBN, The Hindu,
Tehelka, Outlook, etc"
Let us see the ownership of different media agencies.
NDTV: A very popular TV news media is funded by Gospels
of Charity in Spain Supports Communism. Recently it has
developed a soft corner towards Pakistan because Pakistan
President has allowed only this channel to be aired in
Pakistan. Indian CEO Prannoy Roy is co-brother of Prakash
Karat, General Secretary of the Communist party of India .
His wife and Brinda Karat are sisters.
India Today: Which used to be the only national weekly which
supported BJP is now bought by NDTV!! Since then the tone
has changed drastically and turned into Hindu bashing.
CNN-IBN: This is 100 percent funded by Southern Baptist
Church with its branches in all over the world with HQ in US..

http://www.newslaundry.com/2014/02/05/who-owns-your-media-4/ 20/24
Church with its branches in all over the world with HQ in US..
The Church annually allocates $800 million for promotion of
its channel. Its Indian head is Rajdeep Sardesai and his wife
Sagarika Ghosh.
Times group list:
Times Of India, Mid-Day, Nav-Bharat Times, Stardust,
Femina, Vijay Times, Vijaya Karnataka, Times Now (24- hour
news channel) and many more...
Times Group is owned by Bennet & Coleman. 'World
Christian Council' does 80 percent of the Funding, and an
Englishman and an Italian equally share balance 20 percent.
The Italian Robertio Mindo is a close relative of Sonia
Gandhi.
Star TV: It is run by an Australian, who is supported by St.
Peters Pontifical Church Melbourne.
Hindustan Times: Owned by Birla Group, but hands have
changed since Shobana Bhartiya took over. Presently it is
working in Collaboration with Times Group.
The Hindu: English daily, started over 125 years has been
recently taken over by Joshua Society, Berne , Switzerland ..
N. Ram's wife is a Swiss national.
Indian Express: Divided into two groups.
The Indian Express and new Indian Express (southern
edition) ACTS Christian Ministries have major stake in the
Indian Express and latter is still with the Indian counterpart.
Eeenadu: Still to date controlled by an Indian named Ramoji
Rao. Ramoji Rao is connected with film industry and owns a
huge studio in Andhra Pradesh.
Andhra Jyothi: The Muslim party of Hyderabad known as MIM
along with a Congress Minister has purchased this Telugu
daily very recently.
The Statesman: It is controlled by Communist Party of India.
Kairali TV: It is controlled by Communist party of India
(Marxist)
Mathrubhoomi: Leaders of Muslim League and Communist
leaders have major investment.
Asian Age and Deccan Chronicle: It is owned by a Saudi
Arabian Company with its chief Editor M.J. Akbar.

Gujarat riots which took place in 2002 where Hindus were
burnt alive, Rajdeep Sardesai and Bharkha Dutt working for
NDTV at that time got around 5 Million Dollars from Saudi
Arabia to cover only Muslim victims, which they did very
faithfully... Not a single Hindu family was interviewed or
shown on TV whose near and dear ones had been burnt alive
in Godra, it is reported.
Tarun Tejpal of Tehelka gets blank cheques from Arab
countries to target BJP and Hindus only, it is said.
The ownership explains the control of media in India by
foreigners. The result is obvious.

questions.ONly Gujarat Samachar published
that.Divybhaskar's tital was "modi e AK ne samay na apyo
malva(Modi didnt gave kejrival time to meet) and also wrote
that "people of gujarat didnt welcome hi, at all" but the fact on
base is that so much crowd gathered around him..
3)on the day Kejrival resigned as cheif minister: rajasthan
patrika's headline was"Kejrival delhi ki janta ko ullu banake
bhage"!!!
BUT rays of hope everywhere.BBC's headline was "Reformist
cheif minister kejrival resigned as he couldnt give lokpal bill"
