“The Statesman” of Kolkata covers Udupi Press Victim blog on B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism

Reader Prashanth Jain writes “I read about your blog in The Statesman Kolkata Edition. However their online version does not carry that article anymore, but Google’s cache contains the article”

Thanks Prashanth for forwarding the link.

Highlights from the article whose heading was “Journalist in the dock” – author unknown but is listed as “The author is The Statesman’s Bangalore-based Special Representative

While some people are supportive of the couple, others have accused them of seeking to blackmail the wealthy Jain community and other businessmen and firms for advertisements. For example, udupipressvictim.wordpress.com claimed that the eveninger, Karavali Ale, its chief editor and wife had demanded money from the wealthy Jain community in Mangalore for ensuring that he did not write against their munis.

Another blogger said: “What we have here is a simple case of sleazy blackmail journalism by Karavali Ale and BV Seetharam and the portraying of this as some kind of freedom of the Press issue is pure nonsense.

Karavali Ale and BV Seetharam have a history of writing against minority communities (remember the Kodikal church attack or attacks on Muslims during the Mangalore communal riots after Karavali Ale wrongly published the death of one teacher Bhat ~ when he was in fact alive?) And now when caught on the wrong foot (or rather, with the pen in the mouth), the whole incident is being portrayed as a freedom of Press issue.”

Kudos to the writer for giving credit to the blog (with complete address of the blog).
