"Cattle class" tera journalism!

"..But it’s the token of respect they have earned that the occupants of the crammed “cattle class” may appreciate more..", goes The Telegraph main story on the Railway Budget, titled "Cattle class to comfort zone".

Our "mainstream" media can so blatantly stoop to any low when they are sure nobody would take it up and make it an issue like they did with the Shilpa Shetty (non?) issue a few weeks back. They also seem to be assuming that the "class" that travels in general compartments don't read their paper.

though i also feel that its a process we are going through. people are slowly becoming aware of the amount of "information" being thrown at them. so i feel that at some point, things will turn and there will be a new process to look at what the role of media is.
