If you are an Indian Express reader you have just been told: you are the dumbest, stupidest, bumpkin, buffoon, idiot, thick-headed, retarded, imbecile reader on this earth.

It's your choice to live with this tag, readers.

Or why would their lead story of today (February 28, 2016) "VIDEO IS OUT: Kanhaiya assaulted, breaks down, police duck for cover" has no relation at all with the real report, smug as they are with the pig that they believe you are, readers?

Now what this headline tells you: It is that there is video that shows Kanhaiya assaulted, breaks down, police duck for cover, isn't it?

And what does the actual report tells you?: The report tells you that this video is a deposition of Kanhaiya before the Supreme Court panel.

Spotted the difference? (don't tell me you are really what Express thinks you are).

So,

The Headline tells you there is a video of "Kanhaiya assaulted.'

The report tells you the video is of "Kanhaiya's disposition" and not of assault.

In other words, Express believes that you stupid readers wouldn't go beyond their headline (they actually know their worth, folks). Even if it is the lead story!

Now the next question which crossed my mind was how did they get hold of the video? A smart piece of journalism? That made me look for the SC panelists. One was Kapil Sibal (a multiple minister in the previous Congress government); another lawyer Vrinda Grover who is a board member of GreenPeace whose license to collect foreign funds has been cancelled by the Modi government. Actually Sibal has also been in the programme board of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which has been hauled over to Supreme Court by a writ petition.

I might be suggesting a NGOs+Congress+Marxists+Media collusion here but so dumb are you readers that I am confident I could get away with it without you suspecting anything.

There are usual suspects littered in this edition of Indian Express: Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal, Admiral Ramdass, Sharad Pawar, Chidambaram, Nitish Kumar, our revered academic institutions voices (this time its missionary college St. Stephen's principal), going after government on JNU issue. (Actually you must admire Mulayam, Jayalalitha, Mamata, Lalu, Shiv Sena to hold their tongues so far). Central minister Uma Bharti is actually lucky to get two paras in support of Modi, buried many pages deep inside the newspaper.

It's a rogues' gallery with Express passing the board-room bulletin as news for us asinine readers.

And don't you believe anyone loves cricket in this country. On a Sunday edition, there is no front-page mention of India beating Pakistan on a cricket field. Never mind this was India's only seventh T20 match against arch rivals this millennium and that Virat Kohli played a knock which Sachin Tendulkar would've been proud to own up. (May be, showing Pakistan in a losing, poor light wouldn't suit the agenda).
