Scroll carried the news of how ABP News Network Managing Editor Milind Khandekar, journalist Punya Prasun Bajpai had resigned after they carried a story of how a woman may have been tutored to tell lies in their show Masterstroke . Increasingly hackers are used to ensure that websites and media outlets in India are not carrying any negative news and unless a very technically competent person is in charge , most websites and media outlets cannot handle the hackers, are forced to agree to their demands.
In addition to objecting to the news story, it appears that viewers of the program are unable to watch the ABP Masterstroke program using DTH like Tatasky, Airtel . The DTH service providers are saying that there is a problem with ABP transmission
This highlights a problem which the mainstream media does not bother to cover, how in an increasingly digitized world, it is very easy for hackers to ensure that those who cause problems for the powerful, are harassed and silenced
The hackers may have allegedly told ABP management, that unless the journalists responsible for the negative story were removed, they would ensure that there was a problem with the transmission of ABP Masterstroke program and other programs also
So the management may be forced to ask for their resignation. This is a problem faced by most online publishers, who then are forced to close when their websites are hacked for carrying negative news . Powerful officials have also tried hacking the websites of the domain investor, google competitor, engineer owning this website for exposing high level fraud like the ntro sex, bribery racket, banking fraud, identity theft by ntro employees to get their girlfriends like nayanshree hathwar, riddhi nayak,raw/cbi jobs,
However though NTRO, R&AW, cbi, indian and goan government bribed by google, tata may refuse to admit the fact, the domain investor, google competitor owning the website is a very experienced admin, so unlike ABP which was allegedly forced to compromise, she can ensure uptime for her many website despite carrying far more negative news on the NTRO, google, tata, SEX, bribery racket, FINANCIAL, BANKING, IDENTITY THEFT FRAUD.
