The United Nations and media ethics
When Shashi Tharoor is in town, as he will be in November, Page 3 goes ga-ga over him. Stephanians like to think of him as Kofi Annan's successor, and so the Stephanian-dominated media splashes him all over. When he was promoting his novel Riot, one paper wrote that Tharoor had managed to charm the Delhi gliterrati with his good looks!
If only hacks on the desk paid a little more attention to what he does in his job as the UN's spokesperson, they would get some "sexy stories".
Israelpundit (just discovered him!) rants against Tharoor & Co.'s "fake news" programme on CNBC (in US). Mr Israelpundit also has a blog called Mediacrity, where he writes more about Tharoor.
