Parliatainment !

For the past two days, it was virtual ball-by-ball commentary of things happening in the Lok Sabha on all major English news channels. All of them, NDTV, CNN-IBN and Times Now vying with one another in covering the debate on the trust motion in Lok Sabha and the murky goings on outside the Parliament. It was "entertainment"! I wonder how Ms. Jayanthi Natarajan, Outlook editor Mr. Vinod Mehta and Mr. Rajiv Pratap Rudy of BJP never tire of appearing on the news channels stoutly defending their party line/point of view. Curtains came down around 8 pm Tuesday night with Speaker Somnath Chatterjee declaring Government has won the trust vote.
