Slap The Messenger

PTI reports:

Bhartiya Janshakti Party (BJS) National President Uma Bharti today blamed the media for blowing out of proportion the incident when she had slapped twice a worker of her party at Chhindwara.

“My slapping the worker was not a big deal at all but the only thing was that it was captured on camera by a private news channel,” she told PTI.


Bharti said that had the incident not been captured on camera, no one would have come to know about it and the person who was slapped would also not have left the party.

In other words, if it’s not on the news channels, it didn’t happen, it doesn’t matter. What to do about people who treat life like a reality show?
