Mangalore and Coastal Karantaka are not new to protests. But this protest was different – in an unprecedented protest, people were protesting against a “newspaper” Karavali Ale and its “Editor-in-Chief” B.V.Seetharam.

Perhaps for the first time in the history of Coastal Karnataka  and Mangalore, several hundred people including many women and children came out in street to protest blackmail journalist B.V.Seetharam and his newspaper “Karavali Ale”.

While few long distance patriots sitting out in places like Houston and some in media are trying hard to protect (like D.P.Satish of CNN-IBN who falsely attirbuted reason of arrest to RSS) their fellow media man B.V.Seetharam without knowing facts of the case, it is clear that public in Coastal Karnataka have had enough with B.V.Seetharam’s style of blackmail journalism.

People protesting against Karavali Ale first conducted a silence march and then shouted slogans against blackmail tactics of B.V.Seetharam and “Karavali Ale”.

“KARAVALI ALE” and B.V.Seetharam’s blackmail victims include people of all religions

Protest in Mangalore against newspaper Karavali Ale and its blackmail editor B.V.Seetharam

JAN 13 2009:Protest in Mangalore against newspaper Karavali Ale and its blackmail editor B.V.Seetharam

One has to note that people cutting across religious lines have been victims of Karavali Ale and B.V.Seetharam – so this is a truly secular public outrage in a region sharply divided along communal lines.

***

Even a magazine like “FRONTLINE” acknowledges this in article about B.V.Seetharam in its latest issue.

Excerpts:

Karavali Ale was targeted by the public because it had been publishing articles against prominent Hindu religious leaders as well as Christians and Muslims for the past four to five years. He termed the attacks against the distribution network of the newspaper a ‘‘public revolt’’.

“The circulation of the newspaper fell by more than 50 per cent in December. If Seetaram’s allegations are correct, why haven’t any of the other local newspaper establishments stood by him?”

This is not the first time that the newspaper has ruffled feathers. In several of its reports, there is only a thin line between evidence-based journalistic critique and rhetoric that can be interpreted as being defamatory. Its style is a no-holds-barred kind, and it does not hesitate to make personal attacks.

B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale

B.V.Seetharam of Karavali Ale

As usual we can expect total blackout of this protest by Main Stream Media while a protest by few (less than a dozen) leftist buddies of Seetharam can get National Coverage (see CNN-IBN coverage and other coverage of a protest againdt BVSee’s arrest in Bangalore). As expected media faternity is very close knit when it comes to saving skin of one of their own.

Rights of common people somehow is less important than a blackmailer like B.V.Seetharam who blatantly ignored court summons like a two bit common criminal? and was arrested on a non-bailable warrant issued by a court?

Is suffering Bhojaraja Shetty and family is going through because of reckless blackmail journalism by B.V.Seetharam and Karavali Ale is somehow less important? B.V.Seetharam is now faking illness (like common criminals do) is enjoying five star luxury in hospitals – paid and taken care of by us tax payers. Something to think about….

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

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:

B.V.Seetharam's blackmail victim Bhojaraja Shetty speaks in a Press Conference in Udupi

B.V.Seetharam's blackmail victim Bhojaraja Shetty speaks in a Press Conference in Udupi

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.

B.V.Seetaram of Karavali Ale Arrested in Udupi on non-bailable warrant issued by court

B.V.Seetharam who runs a sprawling blackmail journalism empire in Coastal Karnataka is behind bars, again. This time on a non-bailable warrant issued by Hon’be Court on a defamation case.

Jail time is not new for B.V.Seetaram who has been earlier accused of fostering riots between Hindus, Muslims and Christians in Coastal Karnataka by publishing unsubstantiated rumours as news. He was arrested last year for inciting hate against Jains. Seetaram’s emphire built on blackmailing innocents with threat of publishing false news. Karavali Ale reporters are known all over Coastal Karnataka for their blackmailing tactics.

Some facts on the most recent case and relevant time line:

DEC 2007 – B.V.Seetaram calls Bhoja Shetty of Shirva, Udupi threatening to publish an article alleging rape by Bhoja Shetty. Bhoja Shetty refuses to give any money to B.V.Seetharam

Dec 17, 2007 – Karavali Ale publishes a story alleging Bhojaraj Shetty committed rape and is hiding in Shabarimale (Kerala)

Early 2008 – Bhojaraja Shetty goes to court alleging harassment and defamation by the above report. Court considers the case after evaluating the false report and issues summons to B.V.Seetaram. No response from B.V.Seetaram to repeated summons by the court.

Dec 12, 2008 – Court issues non bailable warrant against B.V.Seetaram. Seetaram ignores it again.

Jan 4, 2009 – B.V.Seetaram arrested in Udupi District per court order.

These are the facts and police are only implementing court order.

*****

B.V.SEETHARAM IS A REPEAT OFFENDER

Sleazy journalist B V Seetharam is a habitual offender - with such an impressive arrest history is it surprising police handcuffed him?

Sleazy journalist B V Seetharam is a habitual offender - with such an impressive arrest history is it surprising police handcuffed him?

B.V.Seetaram is a repeat offender who has made multiple trips to jails and faces dozens of court cases across Karnataka State due to blackmail journalism he practices. Just Google B.V.Seetaram Karavali Ale Blackmail and you can see his exploits. (Click here on his earlier arrest where even Karnataka State High Court rejected his bail application) Everyone know repeat offenders are handcuffed – so why special treatment to repeat offender like B.V.Seetaram? Why are some in media protesting this? Is Media above rule of law in Karnataka?

*****

B.V.SEETARAM planned escape from Udupi Court and Hospital premises?

One of the rumours floating around Udupi is B.V.Seetaram had planned for an elaborate drama by asking his underworld buddies to “kidnap” or “attack” him while in Udupi Court and Hospital premises. In above photos one can see some of the notorious rowdy sheeters behind Seetaram. Did Udupi Police get hint of his plan and handcuff him? This seems plausible since B.V.Seetaram is known for his drama – like torching his own office to get insurance money, planning attack on his own printing press and distributors to get sympathy in the name of “freedom of press”.

******

Contempt of court by those protesting B.V.Seetaram’s Arrest? Why no one is shedding any tears for B.V.Seetaram in Coastal Karnataka

Without knowing facts journalists protest arrest of B.V.Seetaram. Are they aware that court ordered the arrest and protesting against arrest is equivalent to protesting against court?

Without knowing facts journalists protest arrest of B.V.Seetaram. Are they aware that court ordered the arrest and protesting against arrest is equivalent to protesting against court? Also seen in the photo is Gowri Lankesh - a known Naxal Leftist Terrorist Supporter in Bangalore.

Since police are only implementing court order, it is not clear why some journalists are protesting against B.V.Seetaram’s arrest.

Note that no genuine media personalities in Coastal Karnataka are shedding any tears for B.V.Seetaram as everyone here is well aware of his blackmail tactics. Only those like Gowri Lankesh (a naxal supporter), K.B.Ganapathy of Star of Mysore are protesting without knowing above facts.

Isn’t this contempt of court? Is the law different for journalists? Or are journalists above the law? Hon’ble Courts should take suo moto notice of these protests and issue notices to protesting journalists.

**************

B.V.Seetaram claims he is not an Editor when it suits him – when BVSee himself is claiming he is not a journalist / Editor why are other journalists saying it is a Freedom of Press issue?

B.V.Seetharam does not hesistate to send his office peons to jail by naming them as Editor and Publisher and washing off his hands from Karavali Ale’s blackmail journalism. (Click here how he misguided Press Council, Editors Guild earlier)

This is to protect himself from law. While poor “Editor”s end up in jail B.V.Seetaram continues his business by making blackmailing calls to innocent victims to collect money.

So big question is when B.V.See himself claims he is not Editor or Journalist why are other so-called journalists protesting his arrest in places like Bangalore and Mysore?
