Barkha Dutt, facing severe criticism from the bourgeois, has defended Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. She explained to her attackers that the viewers had the last word. When questioned if TRP ratings absolve her of the murders of the ATS Chief and an NSG Major, she showed how the question begged itself. Did not Narendra Modi get absolved by the voter in Gujarat? Now, he has Nano! she shrieked, showing broken glasses of an unknown building and calling people to action.
Asked if this meant a change in her political views, she said she never had one. She cited all her reports of the past decade to plead complete ignorance.
