My parents have been very concerned about the situation in Bangalore and from what I hear from them, Sun TV’s reportage is to blame. They have been reporting that the Tamils are being hounded in Karnataka and the truth is far from it. It could be that my parents are hyper-sensitive when it comes toÂ my safety, but I am not ready to give Sun TV the benefit of the doubt. I hear the same story from a couple of other friends here in Bangalore. If banning Tamil channels is an assault on one’s right to information, watching Sun news is an assault on one’s intelligence!
