Representing ‘Lapdog Media’
Malviya made sharp remarks, saying that Rajdeep and Sagarika represent the rotten ‘lapdog media’ of Delhi, who have sought Padma awards (Congress gave one to Rajdeep), positions in government institutions, access and their penchant for Rajya Sabha (now Also sold air time and YouTube channel). But it is good that these fools are being exposed. If India has to be prosperous, the Indian media also needs conscientious journalists.
