Exposing NYT tricks on PM Modi


Share post:

America’s largest selling newspaper The New York Times (NYT) has done it cleverly. The most acclaimed newspaper, when it had to admire Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, used the words ‘Leader of India’ in the front page. The news headline in the physical paper mentioned the Russian President, who has been targeting the USA on different occasions, as Putin but not ‘Leader of Russia’. All those happened in NYT’s New York edition (17 Sept 2022), where the headline in the frontpage news read ‘Leader Of India Criticizes Putin For Waging War’. But the influential newspaper always termed the Indian Premier as Modi when in negative senses. One can remember some NYT headlines as – Modi’s India Is Where Global Democracy Dies (24 Aug 2022), Modi Stresses Growth, Sidestepping Politics, in Visit to Restive Territory ( 24 Apr 2022), With India on the fence over Ukraine, Biden meets with Modi (11 Apr 2022), Modi’s Party Wins the Biggest Prize in India’s State Elections (10 Mar 2022), Modi’s Use of Antiterror Law Draws Scrutiny From Courts (1 Nov 2021), etc.
However, content of the news on last Saturday’s issue was honestly prepared that narrated, “Underlining Russia’s widening isolation on the world stage, Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India told President Vladimir V. Putin on Friday that it is no time for war — even as the Russian president threatened to escalate the brutality of his campaign in Ukraine. The televised admonishment by Mr. Modi at a regional summit in Uzbekistan came just a day after Mr. Putin acknowledged that Xi Jinping, China’s leader, had ‘questions and concerns’ about the war.
“Taken together, the distancing from Mr. Putin by the heads of the world’s two most populous countries — both of which have been pivotal to sustaining Russia’s economy in the face of Western sanctions — punctured the Kremlin’s message that Russia was far from a global pariah, said the report adding, “I know that today’s era is not of war, Mr. Modi told Mr. Putin at the beginning of their meeting, describing global challenges like the food and energy crises that were hitting developing countries especially hard.” The implicit criticism of Mr. Putin underscored that he now faces perhaps his most challenging moment of recent months, suffering not just these diplomatic setbacks but also retreats on the battlefield and intensifying questions back home over how he has conducted the war.
The report had good words for New Delhi and Beijing as it stated that apparently mindful of the unease among key partners like China and India, Mr. Putin insisted that he was ready for talks without naming any preconditions and that his war aims did not necessarily extend to all of Ukraine. He made no mention on Friday of the broader goals of ‘demilitarizing’ and ‘denazifying’ Ukraine that he announced when he started the war in February — terms that were widely seen as Mr. Putin declaring his intention to achieve political control over the entire country.
The web version of the new item, which is accompanied by a photograph with the caption ‘Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia met in Samarkand, as seen in a photo provided by Russian state media’, added, “All along, India has called for dialogue while avoiding challenging Russia as an aggressor, with its officials quietly insisting that their country is an intermediate power and needs to maintain ties and credibility with both Russia and the West in order to help make peace.”
PM Modi received international media appreciation for his bold statement to the Russian President about the Ukraine war on the sideline of Shanghai Cooperation Summit. The mainstream American media too praised Modi in their pieces reporting about the meeting with Putin. Mentioning the India-Russia bilateral cooperation, Modi commented that now it’s time to address problems like food and fuel securities. Putin, in fact, acknowledged the concerns raised by Modi and said that the crisis should be ended as soon as possible.
NYT also joined in the chorus of admiration to Modi, but definitely not without playing their habitual tricks!
