Why The Hindu?

In the cess pool that is Indian mainstream media, yet another reason why The Hindu stands out.

Friday Review November Fest 2009

In response to the sentiments expressed by our readers, we have cancelled the associate sponsorship of Dow Chemicals International Pvt Ltd for The Hindu Friday Review November Fest 2009. This sponsorship was obtained by our Events team along with other sponsorships in the normal course, without realising the implications.

We thank our readers for communicating their sentiments to us promptly.

The Hindu

And The Hindu does this because it cannot be neutral, because it has an opinion, and because it has a stand. Do we? in the lives we live, how political are we in our consumer preferences?

    Good job by Hindu. To be honest, I was severely pissed off when i heard in the beginning that they had accepted the spons from Dow. As you said, in spite of all the loss of credibility that the media has suffered in the recent times, we still look up to dailies like Hindu. Not that they are totally impartial or anything. But then if it were IBN or somethin who got Dow along, we probably would not have cared. 🙂
