MANGALORE:TV9 Reporter blackmails couple for 3 lakhs;when turned down, shows them in a story on blue film!


ಸಭ್ಯ ದಂಪತಿಗಳಿಂದ ೩ ಲಕ್ಷ ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಕೇಳಿ ಉಗುಳಿಸಿಕೊಂಡ ಮಂಗಳೂರು ಟಿವೀ ನೈನ್ ವರದಿಗಾರ – ಹಣ ಸಿಗದಿದ್ದಾಗ ಬ್ಲೂಫಿಲ್ಮ್ ಸಂಬಂಧಿ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಸಾರ ಮಾಡಿ ಗೂಸಾ ತಿಂದು “ಕಚೇರಿ ಮೇಲೆ ಹಲ್ಲೆ”ಯೆಂಬ ನಾಟಕ!

ಇದು ಪತ್ರಿಕಾಸ್ವಾತಂತ್ರವೇ!?

 TV9 reporter blackmails and demands 3 Lakh rupees

  • Mangalore – TV9 Reporter blackmails a couple from respected family after taking their footage in a road/building without their permission
  • Demands 3 Lakh Rupees
  • When turned down shows them in an episode on blue films!
  • When couple demand answers, claims they attacked TV9 office to coverup blackmail!
  • Usual suspects condemn “attack” – idiots in Press Club, local publicity hungry politicians raise “Freedom of Press” issue!

TV9 Crew who demanded 3 Lakh Rupees and then faked attack to coverup their blackmail tactics – Rajesh and Wilfred

TV9 Mangalore - Rajesh who demanded 3 Lakh rupees from a couple and when turned down showed them in a programme on Blue films

As this blog has exposed repeatedly, misusing Freedom of Press and resorting to blackmail / criminal activities has become a big business in Coastal Karnataka. People like B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale etc have virtually established a lucrative business model based on blackmail and exortion.

TV9 Reporters blackmail innocent people

It is sad that even visual media is not immune from this disturbing development. Anyone with digital camera now claims to be a journalist / TV reporter and harass people in all walks of life – students, teachers, businessmen, doctors, architects, police officials etc.

And if you question their demand, revenge is usually swift from these mercinaries in TV – imaginary stories are sewed up, your reputation is tarnished, you are shown as a goonda or worse “attacker on Press Freedom”

Idiot Press Club officials support blacmailer

Then there are of course local “Press Clubs” which wait for any incident and rush to Police officials and District Administration while turning blind eye to unethical activities of their own members. Can’t expect too much from these Press Club officebearers too – as being Press Club officebearers means lot of (blackmailing) power which leads to riches – that is why Press Club elections are hotly contested and lakhs of rupees are spent to become officebearer.


ನಾಯಿ ಕೊಡೆಯಂತೆ ಎತ್ತುತ್ತಿರುವ ಟಿವಿ ಚಾನೆಲ್ ಗಳಿಂದಾಗಿ ರಸ್ತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅಂಡಲೆಯಿತ್ತಿದ್ದ ಪುಂಡು ಪೋಕರಿಗಳೆಲ್ಲವೂ ಈಗ ಡಿಜಿಟಲ್ ಕೆಮರಾವನ್ನು ನೇತು ಹಾಕಿಕೊಂಡು, “ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತ”, “ವರದಿಗಾರ”ನೆಂದು ಹೇಳಿಕೊಂಡು ಲಕ್ಷಗಟ್ಟಳೆ ರೂಪಾಯಿ ಡಿಮಾಂಡು ಮಾಡುವುದು ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಹೋಗಿದೆ. ಇದೇ “ವರದಿಗಾರ”ರನ್ನು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಯಾವುದಾದರೊಂದು ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮಕ್ಕೆ ಆಹ್ವಾನಿಸಿ ನೋಡಿ? ಕವರ್ ಇಲ್ಲದಿದ್ದರೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕಡೆಯೂ ಮುಖ ಹಾಕುವುದಿಲ್ಲ ಈ “ವರದಿಗಾರ” ಆಸಾಮಿಗಳು!

ಇಂತಹ ಪುಂಡು ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರಿಂದ ಜನರನ್ನು ಬಚಾವು ಮಾಡಬೇಕಾದ ಪ್ರೆಸ್ ಕೌನ್ಸಿಲ್, ಪ್ರೆಸ್ ಕ್ಲಬ್ಬುಗಳೂ ಕೂಡ ಬ್ಲಾಕ್ ಮೇಲ್ ಫಿಕ್ಸಿಂಗ್, ಇಸ್ಪೀಟ್, ಕುಡಿತ ಜೂಜಾಟದ ಕ್ಲಬ್ ಗಳ ಅಡ್ಡೆಯಾಗಿವೆ. (ಇಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಡಿ:ಉಡುಪಿ ಬೋರ್ಡ್ ಹೈಸ್ಕೂಲ್ ಆವರಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಉಡುಪಿ ಪ್ರೆಸ್ ಕ್ಲಬ್ ಸದಸ್ಯರ ಮಜಾಮೊಜು) ಪರಿಸ್ಠಿತಿ ಹೀಗಿರುವಾಗ ಪುಂಡ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರ ಮೇಲೆ ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯ ಜನರು ಕೈ ಎತ್ತುತ್ತಿರುವಂತಹ ಘಟನೆಗಳು ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾದರೆ ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಈ “ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತ”ರು ತಮ್ಮನ್ನೇ ಶಪಿಸಬೇಕಷ್ಟೆ!
