Press Council of India Defaulter since 2005 – B.V.Seetharam now complains to PCI about this blog – claims “misuse of Internet” LOL

February 12, 2009

B.V.SEETHARAM – TOPS DEFAULTER LIST ON PRESS COUNCIL OF INDIA WEBSITE. Is B.V.Seetharam misusing membership of PCI to further his blackmail activities?

B V Seetharam defaults of PCI for years but still complains to PCI

B V Seetharam is prominently displayed as "defaulter" on Press Council of India website since year 2005!

Perhaps even best of the comedy writers can’t script this or is this an indication how delusional a blackmail journalist becomes when he is exposed.

We are now in possession of an email sent by B.V.Seetharam to Press Council of India where he demands ban on this website. Comedy because for someone claiming to be champion of free speech and media,  B.V.Seetharam surely does not believe in practicising what he preaches.

B.V.Seetharam of Chitra Publications Mangalore – a notorious blackmail journalist fresh out of jail in a blackmail incident – publishes “Karavali Ale”,”Sanje Ale”, “Kannada Janantaranga”, “Canara Times”, disturbing communal harmony and peace in Coastal Karnataka, has been prominently displayed as “Defaulter” on Press Council of India website since year 2005 owing thousands of rupees to Press Council of India.

Even other journalists including Karnataka’s most popular journalist Ravi Belagere  dissociate themselves from B.V.Seetharam’s style of blackmail journalism.

And in an unprecedented protest in Mangalore, thousands including women and children came out openly to protest blackmail tactics of B.V.Seetharam recently.

But without any shame B.V.Seetharam and Karavali use the fact that they are member of Press Council of India to boast how this rag is a “genuine” newspaper and get advertisements from government institutions to subsidize their blackmail journalism.

We had covered it in our earlier blog post long time ago on this blog (read “Karavali Ale tops Press Council of India Default List”) and one can even now visit Press Council of India website to verify it (http://presscouncil.nic.in/defaulters.htm)

B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale

B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale

Press Council of India defaulter B.V.Seetharam complains to PCI about the blog and sees “misuse of Internet” for exposing his lies out in open

Since when Blogs come under the purview of Press Council of India? What jurisdiction does PCI have on websites which can be hosted in any country in the world?

One has to pity B.V.Seetharam for not knowing even basics of journalism or blogging!

Irony of B.V.Seetharam demanding muzzling of blogs

Even if we discount this feudal journalist’s state of mind after enjoying his stay in variety of Karnataka jails (ordered by various Karnataka Courts), B.V.Seetharam who boasts about “Freedom of Press”, “Freedom of Media” is now complaining about a medium of free speech like this blog. Very ironic indeed.

For years this blog has exposed B.V.Seetharam and his blackmail journalism to whole world with documentation. We even carried interview of Bhojaraja Shetty, a blackmail victim of B.V.Seetharam where BVSeetharam demanded 1 Lakh Rupees to not publish a concocted story. That post remains one of the highest viewed post on this blog with hundreds of people visiting it daily to know more about B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail journalism.

B.V.Seetharam’s double talk

How can someone like B.V.Seetharam who claims immunity from courts, police, his victims under “Freedom of Press” umbrella, now complain about a blog which is exposing his misdeeds?

As usual B.V.Seetharam stands exposed in front of the whole world.

*****

Are you a victim of B.V.Seetharam and his band of blackmailers claiming to be “reporters”, “journalists”? Are you sick and tired of inaction of PCI in managing blackmail journalists? Are you tired of complaining to Press Council of India? Share your stories or send them over to udupipressvictim@gmail.com for publication – your identity will be kept confidential if you so desire.

Help the country by exposing this blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam and also campaign for reforming PCI which many claim is totally ineffective in dealing with blackmailers like B.V.Seetharam.

Ravi Belagere on blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam:”No one in Karnataka media is bothered about BVSee’s arrest except few hardcode leftists”

Ravi Belagere - Karnataka's Number 1 Journalist

Ravi Belagere - Karnataka's Number 1 Journalist has some advise for B.V.Seetharam

There is absolutely no threat to freedom of media in Karnataka – Ravi Belagere

Karnataka’s number one journalist Ravi Belagere writes in Hai Bangalore on B.V.Seetharam’s arrest.

Some excerpts:

  • There is absolutely no threat to freedom of press in Karnataka
  • Seetharam has made it a habit to defy courts and he has only himself to blame
  • B.V.Seetharam himself is responsible for his current situation
  • B.V.Seetharam is jealous of Vijaya Karnataka because Vijaya Karnataka newspaper’s popularity resulted in decline of Karavali Ale’s circulation.
  • Police had no other option but to arrest B.V.Seetharam as otherwise police faced contempt of court case.
  • No one in Karnataka mainstream media has bothered about B.V.Seetharam’s arrest because most of them were victims of B.V.Seetharam’s yellow journalism.
  • If B.V.Seetharam makes it a habit to go to jail every year, how long can we journalist support him for problems created by himself?

“ಹಾಯ್ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರ್” ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಜನಪ್ರಿಯ ಸಂಪಾದಕ ರವಿ ಬೆಳಗೆರೆಯವರು ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀ ಬಂಧನದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಬಹಳ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಮುಖ್ಯಾಂಶಗಳು:


* ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಇವತ್ತಿಗೂ ಮುಕ್ತ ಪತ್ರಿಕೋದ್ಯಮ ನಡೆಸುವ ವಾತಾವರಣವಿದೆ.

ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ಮಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಹೇಳುವುದಾದರೆ ನಾವು ಸಂಪಾದಕರ್ಯಾರು ತೀರ ಜೀವ ಭಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೆ ಕುತ್ತು, ಆಪತ್ತು ಬಂದಿರುವುದು ಸದ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರೊಬ್ಬರಿಗೇನೇ.

ಉಳಿದೆಡೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಆದಂತೆ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರ ಹತ್ಯೆಗಳೂ ಆಗಿಲ್ಲ.

ಗೃಹ ಸಚಿವ ವಿ.ಎಸ್ ಆಚಾರ್ಯರು ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರೊಬ್ಬನನ್ನು ಕೊಲ್ಲಿಸುವ ಮಟ್ಟದ ರಾಜಕಾರಣಿಯಲ್ಲ

ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀತಾರಾಮ್ ತಾವು ಅಂದುಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದೇ ಸರಿ ಎಂದು ವಾದಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಆ ವಾದವನ್ನು ನೀವು ಒಪ್ಪಲೇಬೇಕು ಎಂದು ಹಟ ಹಿಡಿಯುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಫಜೀತಿಯಾಗುವುದೇ ಅಲ್ಲಿ. ಹೀಗಾಗಿಯೇ, ಬಿ.ವಿ. ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಒಂದು ವರ್ಷದ ಅಂತರದಲ್ಲಿ ಎರಡು ಸಲ ಜೈಲು ಕಾಣುವಂತಾಗಿದೆ.

ಇದರಲ್ಲಿ ಪತ್ರಿಕೋದ್ಯಮಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದೊದಗಿದ ಗಂಡಾಂತರವಾಗಲೀ, ಆಪತ್ತಾಗಲೀ ಏನಿದೆ? ನ್ಯಾಯಾಲಯದ ಮಾತೂ ಮೀರುತ್ತೇನೆಂದು ಹೊರಟರೆ ಹೇಗೆ? ಇಷ್ಟಾಯಿತಲ್ಲ; ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಬಂಧನವನ್ನು ಮಂಗಳೂರಿನ ಯಾವ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯೂ ಖಂಡಿಸಲಿಲ್ಲ. ದಕ್ಷಿಣ ಕನ್ನಡ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರ ಸಂಘವೂ ಖಂಡಿಸಲಿಲ್ಲ. ಏಕೆಂದರೆ, ಅವರೆಲ್ಲರ ವಿರುದ್ಧವೂ ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಸತತವಾಗಿ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಆದರೆ ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಇಂಥ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳನ್ನು ಕರಾರುವಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ವರ್ಷಕ್ಕೊಮ್ಮೆ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಜೈಲಿಗೆ ಹೋಗುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಅವರಿಗೆ ಕೋಳ ಹಾಕಿದಾಗಲೆಲ್ಲ ನಾವು ಖಂಡಿಸಲು ಹೊರಟುಬಿಟ್ಟರೆ ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಕೊನೆಯೆಲ್ಲಿ, ಅರ್ಥವೆಲ್ಲಿ? ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯನ್ನು ಯಾರಾದರೂ ಬಿಡಿಸಿ ನೋಡಲಿ. ಅದರಲ್ಲಿ ಅತಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಬೈಯಲ್ಪಟ್ಟವರು ಇತರೆ ಪತ್ರಕರ್ತರೇ ಆಗಿರುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರ ‘ಕರಾವಳಿ ಅಲೆ’ ಮತ್ತು ‘ಜಯಕಿರಣ’ ಎಂಬ ಎರಡು ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಳ ಕದನವನ್ನು ಕರಾವಳಿಯ ಜನ ಎಷ್ಟೂಂತ ಓದುತ್ತಾರೆ? ಎಷ್ಟು ದಿನ ಅಂತ ಓದುತ್ತಾರೆ?

ಇವತ್ತಿನ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿಯೆಂದರೆ ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ಅವರ ಹಟಮಾರಿತನದ ಪರಿಣಾಮವಾಗಿ ಅವರದೇ ವರದಿಗಾರರು ಕೆಲಸಬಿಟ್ಟು ಹೋಗಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಬೇರೆ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗಳಿಗೆ, ಛಾನಲ್ ಗಳಿಗೆ ಸೇರಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಒಂದು ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಗೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಬೇಕಾದಷ್ಟು ಕೆಲಸವಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಬರೆದಷ್ಟೂ ಸುದ್ದಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕುತ್ತದೆ. ಸೀತಾರಾಂ ತಮ್ಮ ದೃಷ್ಟಿಕೋನ ಬದಲಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲಿ. ವಿಶಾಲಗೊಳಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲಿ, ಪದೇಪದೇ ಜೈಲು ಸೇರುವುದನ್ನು ಅವರು ಹೋರಾಟ ಅಂದುಕೊಂಡರೆ, ಅದು ಅವರ ಮತ್ತು ಅವರ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಆರೋಗ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದಲ್ಲ.

    B.V.Seetharam case : CNN-IBN Reporter Threatens this blogger for exposing factual error in his report. “Freedom of media” applies only to Main Stream Media and not bloggers?

    January 13, 2009

    CNN-IBN

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN misguides viewers by spreading false news to cover his friend blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN has threatened Udupi Press Victim for exposing factual errors in his report on this blog.

    D.P.Satish writes:

    Nobody has given you the rights to tarnish the image of an honest and professional journalist in the name of exposing blacksheeps (sic) in the media. Now, either you prove all charges against me or tender an apology.If you don’t publish my reply and remove post about my role, me and my channel CNNIBN will be forced to initiate criminal proceedings against you and your blog site. Our company (A Time Warner venture) is well within its rights to file cases against you in a Delhi court and a court in the USA under IPC, CrPC and Cyber laws of both India and America.

    You asked for proof and here you have it.

    Ok let us take this one step at a time.

    D.P.Satish’s report telecast on CNN-IBN whose transcript is available on CNN-IBN website (http://ibnlive.in.com/news/newspaper-editor-held-for-criticising-rss/82244-3.html) says the following:

    Misleading headline in CNN-IBN

    Misleading headline in CNN-IBN

    D.P.Satish may disown the headline, but a reporter’s name is right below the headline how can one claim innocence?

    D.P.Satish may say he is telecasting what B.V.Seetharam told – but isn’t it the duty of journalist to provide both side of the story or at least make it clear in the heading that story subject said so?

    There are two factual errors staring at anyone who has followed arrest of blackmail “journalist” B.V.Seetharam.

    • D.P.Satish’s headline says “Editor” – B.V.Seetharam is neither Editor or Reporter for “Karavali Ale” by his own admission. He has submitted affidavit to this effect in the court (different matter BVSee is doing that to send some bakra Editor to jail in blackmail / defamation cases)
    • D.P.Satish’s headline indicates BVSee was arrested for writing against RSS – this is false. BVSee was arrested per a non-bailable warrant issued by Hon’ble Judge in a District Court.  Also it is not clear at all that BVSee said so as D.P.Satish claims.  If that was the case headline would have been in the lines of “Journalist claims he was arrested for writing against RSS”.

    These are the facts.

    D.P.Satish never bothered to check other side of the story where an innocent person Bhojaraja Shetty was painted as a rapist in B.V.Seetharam’s newspapers just because Mr.Shetty refused to bow down to BV Seetharam’s demand for 1 Lakh Rupees.

    Click here for Bhojaraja Shetty’s version of events leading up to arrest of blackmail journalist.

    So to conclude, we stand by our earlier post exposing D.P.Satish’s unethical, if not lazy reporting.

    We will be happy to modify the post as requested by D.P.Satish, provided:

    • Mr.D.P.Satish modifies the heading on CNN-IBN portal to reflect facts OR
    • Telecast other side of the story – where an innocent poor teacher was portrayed as a rapist by B.V.Seetharam in his newspapers just because Mr.Bhojaraja Shetty refused to bow down to 1 Lakh Rupees demand by B.V.Seetharam.

    Bhojaraja Shetty’s Press Conference on YouTube:

    From UdupiChannel, here is YouTube video of Press Conference in Udupi where victim of BVSeetharam, Bhojaraja Shetty explained his side of the story. Check from 6:00 (Video is in Kannada).

    Mr.Satish, we’ve made it easy for you – you have the video footage below, you have other side of the story, you have the sound bytes (albeit in Kannada).

    ****

    On a related note isn’t it odd to see a MSM (Main Stream Media) reporter name dropping CNN, Time Warner, USA etc and such in his bid to cover errors in his reports? Are bloggers supposed to fear Time Warner or USA etc?

    It is very ironic that D.P.Satish who himself maintains a blog (http://ibnlive.in.com/blogs/author/237/dpsatish.html) is now threatening freedom of expression of a fellow blogger. 

    Also begs a question – is freedom of press an exclusive domain of “traditional” or “Main Stream Media” journalists?

    ****

    And as far as Satish’s threats – he can silence a blog using his corporate muzzle power, but backups of this blog are ready to go on servers of Russia, Spain and Korea should Satish goes ahead with his threats. ಸತೀಶ್ ಅವರೇ, ಒಂದು ವಿಷಯ ತಮಗೆ ತಿಳಿದಿರಲಿ – ಈ ಬ್ಲಾಗಿನ ಪ್ರತಿಗಳು ರಶಿಯಾ, ಸ್ಪೇನ್, ಕೊರಿಯಾ ದೇಶಗಳ ಸರ್ವರುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಸ್ವಿಚ್ ಒತ್ತಿದರೆ ಸಿಗುವಂತೆ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆ ಮಾಡಲಾಗಿದೆ. ತಾವೇನೋ ಈ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಬಾಯಿ ಮುಚ್ಚಿಸಬಹುದು – ಅದಾದರೆ ಪ್ರಪಂಚದ ಬ್ಲಾಗೋಸ್ಪೀಯರುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ, ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಅಗ್ರಿಗೇಟರುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ, ಗೂಗಲ್ ಹುಡುಕಾಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತು ಇಂಟರ್ ನೆಟ್ಟುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ತಮ್ಮ ಹೆಸರು ಅಜರಾಮರವಾಗುವಂತೆ ನೋಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತೇವೆ.

    B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail victim speaks:”B.V.Seetaram demanded 1 Lakh Rupees. BVSee has ruined my life”. Meanwhile D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN tries to cover his blackmailing friend by filing false stories

    January 9, 2009

    “ಬಿ.ವಿ.ಸೀತಾರಾಮ್ ಒಂದು ಲಕ್ಷ ರೂಪಾಯಿ
    ನೀಡುವಂತೆ ಬ್ಲಾಕ್ ಮೇಲ್ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದರು”

    "B.V.Seetharam demanded one lakh rupees. When I didn't pay portrayed me as a rapist in his newspaper" - Bhojaraja Shetty in Press Conference, Udupi

    "B.V.Seetharam demanded one lakh rupees. When I didn't pay he portrayed me as a rapist in his newspaper" - Bhojaraja Shetty in Press Conference, Udupi

    B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail victim and person who filed defamation case against B.V.Seetharam shares his anguish in a Udupi Press Conference.

    For those who can’t read Kannada here are the excerpts from Press Conference in which B.V.Seetharam’s victim Mr.Bhojaraja Shetty explained mental agony he had to go through because of B.V.Seetaram’s blackmail journalism. News from “Hosadiganta” – an upright daily newspaper from Mangalore.

    UDUPI: “Witout any proof or basis, B.V.Seetaram of Karavali Ale newspaper portrayed me as a rapist. Please do not support such blackmail journalist who has ruined our life. Why aren’t you protesting such acts of B.V.Seetharam” asked Bhojaraja Shetty of Shankarapura (Udupi District).

    In a press conference Shetty asked if there is no value for common man when a blackmail journalist like B.V.Seetharam can portray anyone as a rapist. “For two years B.V.Seetharam has mentally tortured me by blackmailing for 1 Lakh Rupees. I had not done any wrong neither did I have any money to pay. So when I didn’t pay B.V.Seetharam, he portrayed me as a rapist in his newspapers. I have full belief that court will provide me justice, but I am horrified that blackmail journalist like B.V.Seetharam is getting support in some sections of the society” he said.

    Shetty also said “B.V.Seetharam ignored repeated summons on this case thus causing contempt of court. I had filed a case in July 31, 2007 and court had issued summons twice on July 7, 2008 and August 11, 2008. Still he did not respond and through Mangalore SP another warrant was issued on Nov 2, 2008. For defaming me, I need justice”.

    Bhojaraja Shetty’s wife Shakuntala Shetty and lawyer Girish Aithal were present in the press conference.

    Not surprisingly this Press Conference went unreported in most of the media.

    In earlier post we explored how media is acting as if they are above law and above anguish of a victim clearly shows how brutal and corrupt media can be when one of their own is caught redhanded and arrested per court order.

    Some more misinformation being spread by journalists of Karnataka to save one of their own:

    ****

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN helps his blackmailing journalist friend B.V.Seetharam by twisting the issue and saying “Newspaper Editor held for criticising RSS”!

    D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN misguides viewers by spreading false news to cover his friend blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam

    Ugly mug shot of liar unprofessional journalist D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN who misguided viewers by spreading false news to cover his friend blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam. Please send email to editor@ibnlive.com to expose this false reporting of D.P.Satish

    Can there be more shameful conduct than this? Facts are B.V.Seetharam was arrested on a non-bailable warrant issued by court and police just implemented the warrant. And warrant was for a defamation case where B.V.Seetharam had portrayed an innocent person as a rapist in his newspaper because that person did not pay up 1 Lakh Rupees asked by B.V.Seetharam.

    Please expose this liar D.P.Satish by writing to his bosses at editor@ibnlive.com. Whatever D.P.Satish’s political viewpoint is, it is totally unnecessary to drag RSS, BJP when B.V.Seetharam was arrested on a non-bailable warrant issued by a court in a defamation case. D.P.Satish is unprofessional journalist and media man who need to be investigated by busybodies in media for twisting the story to suit his viewpoint.

    Judge dismisses Adi Udupi case – was whole incident creation of media?

    ರಾಜ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ರಾಷ್ಟ್ರ ಮಟ್ಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಸುದ್ದಿ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದ “ಆದಿ ಉಡುಪಿ ಬೆತ್ತಲೆ” ಪ್ರಕರಣವೆಂದೇ ಬಣ್ಣಿಸಲ್ಪಟ್ಟಿದ್ದ ಕೇಸನ್ನು ಉಡುಪಿಯ ನ್ಯಾಯಾಧೀಶರು ವಜಾಮಾಡಿ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಶಂಕಿತ ಆರೋಪಿಗಳನ್ನು ಬಿಡುಗಡೆ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ.(ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ)

    “ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ” ಪತ್ರಿಕೆಯ ಮೊದಲ ಪುಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಕಟವಾದ ಈ ಸುದ್ದಿ, ೨೦೦೫ರಲ್ಲಿ ಎಲ್ಲೆಡೆ ಸುದ್ದಿಯಾಗಿ ಉಡುಪಿಯ ಹೆಸರಿಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿಲ್ಲದ ಕಳಂಕ ತಂದಿತ್ತಲ್ಲದೇ ಕೋಮು ಗಲಭಗೂ ಕಾರಣವಾಗಿತ್ತು. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ವಿಧಾನ ಮಂಡಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಈ ಪತ್ರಿಕಾ ವರದಿಯನ್ನೇ ಆಧಾರವಾಗಿಸಿ ಅಂದಿನ ಸರಕಾರ ಸಿಓಡಿ ತನಿಖೆಗೂ ಆದೇಶ ಮಾಡಿತ್ತು.

    ಇಶ್ಟೆಲ್ಲಾ ಆದದ್ದು ಯಕಃಶ್ಶಿತ್ ಒಂದು ಪತ್ರಿಕಾ ವರದಿ (ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ) ಮತ್ತು ಫೊಟೋದಿಂದಯೆಂಬುದನ್ನು ಗಮನಿಸಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ.

    ನ್ಯಾಯಾಧೀಶರು ತಮ್ಮ ಆದೇಶದಲ್ಲಿ ಫೊಟೋ ನಕಲಿಯೆಂಬ ಸಂಶಯ ವ್ಯಕ್ತ ಪಡಿಸಿದ್ದಾರಲ್ಲದೆ ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರ್ ಗ್ರಾಫಿಕ್ಸ್ ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಿ ಚಿತ್ರವನ್ನು ಸಂಯೋಜನೆ ಮಾಡಿರುವ ಸಾಧ್ಯತೆಯಿದೆಯೆಂದೂ ಶಂಕಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ!

    ಇಶ್ಟ್ಟೆಲ್ಲಾ ಅನಾಹುತಗಳಿಗೆ ಕಾರಣರನಾದ, ಫೊಟೋಕ್ಕಾಗಿ “ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ”ದಿಂದ ಎರಡು ಲಕ್ಷ ರೂಪಾಯಿ ವಸೂಲಿ ಮಾಡಿದ ಉಡುಪಿಯ ಬೆತ್ತಲೆ  ಫೊಟೋಗ್ರಾಫರ್ ಉಮೇಶ್ ಮಾರ್ಪಳ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತು “ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ”ದ ಉಡುಪಿ ವರದಿಗಾರ, ನಕ್ಸಲ್ ಹಿತಚಿಂತಕ ಸುಭಾಸ್ ಚಂದ್ರ ವಾಗ್ಳೆ ಇದೀಗ ನ್ಯಾಯಾಯಲದಿಂದ ಉಗಿಸಿಕೊಂಡರೂ ನಾಚಿಕೆಯಿಲ್ಲದೆ ತಮಗೇನೂ ಆಗಿಲ್ಲವೆಂಬಂತೆ ಓಡಿಕೊಂಡಿರುವುದು ಸೋಜಿಗದ ಸಂಗತಿ.

    ೨೦೦೫ರಲ್ಲಿ ದಿನಗಟ್ಟಳೆ ಈ ಪ್ರಕರಣವನ್ನು ಮುಖಪುಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಸಾಲೆ ಹಾಕಿ ಹಿಂಡಿ ಹಾಕಿ ಕೋಮು ಗಲಭೆಗೆ ಕಾರಣವಾಗಿ ತನ್ನ circulation ಹೆಚ್ಹಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದ “ಕನ್ನಡಪ್ರಭ”ವಂತೂ ನ್ಯಾಯಾಧೀಶರ ಆದೇಶವನ್ನು ಯಾವುದೋ ಒಳಪುಟದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಣ್ಣದಾಗಿ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸಿದೆ.

    ಉಡುಪಿಯಂತಹ ಸುಸಂಕೃತ ಸಮುದಾಯಕ್ಕೆ ಮಸಿ ಬಳೆದ ಈ ಪ್ರಕರಣ ಮಾಧ್ಯಮಗಳ ಸ್ಪಶ್ಟಿಯೇ ಅಥವಾ “ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಪೋರಂ ಫಾರ್ ಡಿಗ್ನಿಟಿ”/”ಜನಪರ ವೇದಿಕೆ”/”ಕೋಮು ಸೌಹಾರ್ದ ವೇದಿಕೆ” ಯಂತಹ ದೇಶ ವಿರೋಧಿ ಸಂಘಟನೆಗಳ ಸಮಾಜಕ್ಕೆ ಬೆಂಕಿ ಹಚ್ಹುವ ಕೆಲಸವೇ ಎಂಬುದರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತನಿಖೆ ನಡೆಯಬೇಕಾಗಿದೆ.
