‘ಶೇಷ’ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಓದುಗರ ಪ್ರಶಂಸೆ !
ಶೇಷಾದ್ರಿಯವರು ಬರೆದಿರುವಂಥ ಪತ್ರವನ್ನು ಓದಿ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಮನಸ್ಸಿಗೆ ಗಾಬರಿ ಆಗಿದ್ದಂತು ನಿಜ. ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಬರುವುದೆಲ್ಲ ಪೂರ್ತಿ ನಿಜವೆಂದು ನಂಬುವಂಥ ಸ್ಥಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಇಲ್ಲದಿದ್ದರೂ, ಬರುವ ಕೆಲವನ್ನಾದರೂ ನಿಜ ಎಂದು ನಂಬಬಹುದು ಎಂದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದೆ. ವಿಷಯ ಯಾವುದೇ ಇರಲಿ, ಮಾಧ್ಯಮಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಇರುವುದನ್ನು ಓದಿ ನಂಬುವಂತಹ ನನ್ನಂತಹವರಿಗೆ, ಈ ಪತ್ರ ಒಂದು ಚಾಟಿಯೇಟಿನಂತೆ. ಸಂಪಾದಕರ ಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಕುಳಿತು ಇಂತಹ ದೋಷಪೂರಿತ (ಪದ ಪ್ರಯೋಗಕ್ಕೆ ಕ್ಷಮೆಯಿರಲಿ) ಲೇಖನಗಳನ್ನು ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸಿವುದು ತಪ್ಪಲ್ಲವೇ. ಆದರೆ ಶೇಷಾದ್ರಿಯವರ ಪತ್ರದಿಂದ ಕನಿಷ್ಠ ನನ್ನಂತಹ ಹಲವರಿಗೆ ಪ್ರಯೋಜನವಾಗಿದ್ದಂತೂ ಖಂಡಿತ. ಇಂತಹ ಪತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸುವ ದಟ್ಸ್ ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕೆ ಕೂಡ ನನ್ನ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು.
One thing I need to say is that, though Monica Lewinsky did not cry in the interview, she had tears in her eyes when she was giving interview! Im sorry I dont remember in which channel/interview I saw that but Im sure I remember it right as I saw that very recently! Anyway, except for this, other things which Mr. Bhat has written are a little difficult to believe (and I dont think there is any proof for that also!).

I believe what is written here. good.
Good article from Sri.Sheshadri.
I read Vijaya Karnataka with great enthusiasm when I visited India last time. But, was disappointed to see the paper full of news about Kannada Nadu party

The article was thought out and written in such beautiful language! I hope Sheshadri writes more often.

You seem to think that American Barbarism in Iraq deserve praise. America is a country by occupation. The europeans occupied Americas and eliminated Indians and used slave labout to grow tobacco. They have been the most uncivilised people on the earth. Any civilised country will not occupy another country.
Your defence of America reflects the typical Indian mentality that led to colonialism. American colonialism needs people like you. I pity India.

Thanks for your credible article. Your factual writing is excellent; hope it gives an opportunity to many writers/readers to comment on it.
I personally like the way you depicted facts versus what was reported/written. It is dangerous, not only the writer/organization loses their significance but also the journalism as such loses its ground. I have heard people saying so what? for several reports/breaking news.
Your article also challenges writers to do their homework before their article becomes a representative of their mind.

After I read the write up on "maadhyama mathu vishvaasaarhathe" by sheshaadri , I felt relieved that atleast there are people who can see through journalists talk and language.
I think that this profession has stooped so low that it beats criminal acts in all sections of illegality. Yuck!
Nemma "Vimarshe" lekakarege ondu paata. Eventhough you have all the qualities of writer I can not believe you are not a writer(As you mentioned in the beginning). I can easily identity your effort before writing this ariticle which is necessary for good writer. By writing http://www.thatskannada.com/sahitya/article/220904media_credibility.html aritcle you are teaching lesson to editors and writers how to write credibly. It definitely rises credibility of writers and show they are not doing proper homework before writing important articles. Keep writing.

Wow! YOU are a Real Good Reader! Even I thought that, the facts which Bhat wrote might not be true and how did he get all those news?
The article by our friend Sheshadri has given plenty of thinking opportunities regarding the Credibility of Media .....
The main thing i appreciate is that the sportive nature to print this article from Thatskannad.com.........keep it up.
The one more responsibility of thatskannad.com is that Sheshadri avaralli obba Lekhaka iddane.....Avanannu Badidebbisi...
Please motivate Sheshadri to write some more things, so that within some days, we can see him as a matures writer.....
