Kantipur Error or Politics?

Kantipur is the most reputed and top selling daily newspaper in Nepal. I think nobody will deny the line. And I am too is one of them before I discovered a huge and critical matter relating to the flow of news. First and the foremost I am sure that a daily newspaper like Kantipur should flow same news in each individual Kantipur newspaper regardless of territory of publication whether it is east or west. I am pretty sure about that a reputed newspaper should be published and take to the market when every necessary quality checkings are done. If is not done then there will no reliability to the readers and the customers.

I know that there is very much chance of errors in the daily newspapers like Kantipur. There are many news to collect, edit and publish each day. But being a reputed and highly responsible newspaper, Kantipur should not take any chances or excuses publishing such blunders and forgetting about it without informing the loyal readers.

I came to know about this mess from my father who works at Janakpur. He found the news of my Grandfather (Mother’s father) being welcomed to his village by different political parties in the second page of 15 th Baisakh 2064, Saturday in Kantipur newspaper. After some day he came to Kathmandu and told us that our Grandfather’s news has been published in Kantipur. We searched the newspaper of that particular date and was shocked to believe what we saw.

There were completely different news there. We couldn't’t believe it and asked our uncle to send that particular newspaper form Janakpur. He did and we compared the two newspapers viz published from Kathmandu and Biratnagar. There was a whole smell of politics. Because though the news of the second and third pages are completely messed up, there was all the news but in different location except our Grandfather’s news.

The other Kantipur which is published from Biratnagar has given his news but not by the Kathmandu publication. So I mean to say is that what is the matter of all this kind of error? Though I have seen some minor errors I haven’t seen such a blunder. If a reputed newspaper like Kantipur continues to do such mistakes then how can a person be reliable to the news he is reading or listening?

Though I am a not a anti of Kantipur and its publication, I am just trying to focus the Kantipur's eye not to repeat the same mistake again and again.

Ashish, u did a great job man. People are usually not known to such blunder mistakes done by the media. Such mistakes can put people in dilemma. But it's Nepal…. Any thing is possible here. Who seriously takes cares? But as being a loyal citizen you did a great job. I think this stuff will help to overcome such mistakes in future. Lest hope for best....

I stopped reading Kantipur, it's a bad motivator and does lots of mistake. Besides, always political, political.. that sucks..
