        When Modi is interviewed or written about in the same tone and with the same prejudice, it is called hard hitting journalism. Eg. Karan Thapar's interview of Modi, and all the secular media columns by self righteous secularists. Here the journalistic bias is against a woman, so the narrative has shifted. It is no longer hard-hitting journalism that poses/asks uncomfortable questions, but hyper opinionated and malicious. Well, journalism has been like that always, at least since the time I started reading newspapers and watching news channels, which is not very recent.

            No doubt that KKHH posters are outrageously vulgar and cr; don't see movies anymore but producers sell what the public demands. The taste of audiences is disgusting and deable. If censor board applies cuts, the film-makers raise the ruckus; if they don't, the cultural brigade comes into fray. Gone are the days of good comedies. Aping west blindly is the por sentiment.
