Reporting about any political party is an important decision which must be done carefully.
In previous article of Biased Reporting I talked about the impact of such reporting. Beyond the personnel and national biasness, a political biasness can also be prevalent in reporting of some people in which it is shown with respect to a political party. For example, National Congress Party (NCP) of India has been consistently in the negative lime light for one issue or other. It was severely criticized for giving more focus to Amitabh Bachchan than the country’s external defense, increased reservations and communal riots in certain states. All such issues gained much more relevance whenever India was at the receiving end of the terror attacks.
There was the opinion that they follow “Divide and Rule” policy, which was followed by British in India. NCP is considered worse than British people as they cannot protect India from external attacks. It has been mocked that the very same party who fought against British by destroying their policy of “Divide and Rule” is now itself using that tactic to rule India.
When only one side of the story is presented it indicates biasness in the opinion. It is just like smoking which is criticized all the time.
