Some people have asked me, why I am so angry about The Hindu. Just read today's editorial. You would have expected today's editorial to be about Indo - US nuclear agreement or UC Banerjee committe report or may be even on Chappell-Ganguly saga. No, today's editorial is about Taiwanese President abolishing the National Unification Council that was set up to unify Taiwan with Peoples Republic of China. Like most of my country men, I too don't know anything about Taiwan except that they manufacture lot of cheap electronic products. But The Hindu chose to enlighten me on this issue that is of utmost importance for India.
After reading this editorial in the National Daily I learnt a lot about how accommodative China has been with Taiwan, that Taiwanese President Mr. Chen (no relative of mine) is losing the public support and was routed in the local elections, US (which incidentally is an imperialist demon if you go by The Hindu's earlier editorials) has adviced Taiwan to maintain status quo and that Mr. Chen shouldn't leave a legacy of confrontation with China. It is an important issue for a national daily to cover, only I wondered which nation's daily I was reading.
It is the editor's prerogative to choose the topic he wants to write. And it is my prerogative to diss them.
