Mid-Day's exploitative story
hi all,Just saw a post (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=49641698651&topic=7986) on Facebook's `Consortium of pub-going, loose and forward Women'. I am quoting it verbatim... "Those who have read the front page story in Mid Day today were shocked. It showed a semi-nude girl, with the headline `Another sex clip rocks campus'. http://www.mid-day.com/delhi/index.htm. The article (http://www.mid-day.com/news/2009/feb/180209-Noida-MBA-student-leaks-girlfriends-striptease-video.htm) goes on to explain how this girl's boyfriend filmed her striptease and circulated it on the mobile through MMS. What is shocking is how Midday, instead of showing the culprit's face, has shown the victim in only her undergarments. Her face may be pixilated, but it's still disgusting to show a girl's picture, in such a vulnerable state by such a supposedly reputed paper. Midday has done to the girl, what her boyfriend did to her -- it's an outrage of her modesty and sexual exploitation. Recently, Midday did something similar. A week ago, it carried the headline which was completely sensationalised (in red ink too) that a minor child had been raped. They DARED to show the picture of the child and her distraught mother on the front page, instead of the culprit's face who was in police custody. As if those disrespectful mid-day mates were not enough, the paper is set to exploit rape victims as well. I don't know about you, but i am banning that crazy paper from my home and office.
