When one paints a mental picture of a journalist, there are various qualities associated with the “ideal journalist” which come to the mind. They being, objectivity, integrity, tenacity, being outgoing, to name a few.

But when one pictures controversial journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, it seems that the quality which comes to the forefront, above everything else, is hypocrisy. And in order to prove so, scientist and well known columnist Anand Ranganathan has dedicated a whole thread to expose Rajdeep and his hypocrisy.

Going by Anand Ranganathan’s thread, the instances of Rajdeep’s hypocrisy may be so vast even a book might be written on the whole affair, but here are the choicest few which put Rajdeep in the dock to say the least.

Ranganathan who ‘fondly’ calls Rajdeep Michelangelo, had once famously exclaimed that, “if Hypocrisy were an art form, this man would be Michelangelo”, thanks to this:

Dear @sardesairajdeep, please read why Nikhil Wagle's show ended on TV9 and delete your tweet claiming it was the "highest rated show". Thnx

Manak Gupta @manakgupta
पुराने साथी @vinodkapri बताते हैं निखिल वागले की TV9 से विदाई की पूरी कहानी. वागले का शो बंद होने की असल वजह ख़राब रेटिंग थी,मोदी-विरोध नहीं

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Replying to @manakgupta
my definition of TRP has been, and always will be, Television 'Respect' Points!I hope one day you will understand it's meaning!
................................................................................................

But Sardesai wasn’t really concerned about, “Television ‘Respect’ Points” in the past:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Network 18 does it again: CNBC TV 18 and CNBC Awaaz dominate biz ratings on budget day/week. CNN IBN leads among Eng news channels.
9.34 AM - 21 Mar 2012
................................................................................................

And as Ranganathan described, Like clockwork, here comes Michelangelo of Hypocrisy brandishing his chisel. The Renaissance Man of Indian Journalism. Here’s another gem:

When 4 ex bureaucrats out of 9 become ministers, (2 not even in parliament), sure sign of talent deficit among netas.. #cabinetreshuffle

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Whatever happened to the experts/technocrats that could lift the quality of cabinet? Will some of them be made advisers? #ModiCabinet
12:38 PM - 26 May 2014
................................................................................................

Rajdeep once proclaimed that, channels shouldn’t carry sponsored content of Godmen:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Why don't all channels say they will not carry sponsor programmes of babas any more?We got to look within before we point fingers at netas!
9:38 PM - 28 Aug 2017
................................................................................................

And again, almost like clockwork, Ranganathan was on Rajdeep’s case and uncovered that, IBN7 the channel where Rajdeep used to be the Editor-in-chief, used to run Nirmal baba episodes three times a day, everyday:

Rajdeep once let everyone know on twitter that, he wasn’t too fond of bullet trains:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Before we get bullet trains, please ensure that all trains have same safety stds @sureshpprabhu, not just Rajdhani, shatabdi.
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Another train derailment this morning: can we focus rail safety first before we focus on a bullet train!
................................................................................................

But Ranganathan wasn’t letting him get away with that lie and uncovered this:
...............................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Bullet train day! More I read about it think it's a win - win: Japanese money, Indian benefit!! Now to meet deadlines! #BulletTrain
................................................................................................

Rajdeep one day decided that India should become a mature nation and not mention Pakistan in UN speeches:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
I do await the day though when India can deliver a speech at UN without mentioning pakistan and thinking/talking like a G 20 strong nation.
10.30 PM - 23 Sep 2017
................................................................................................

You won’t be surprised with which screenshots Ranganathan put up next:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
To those who ask @ShashiTharoor and @SushmaSwaraj could make a strong bipartisan team to the UN to isolate PAK.
#indiaabovepolitics
10.11 PM - 20 Sep 2016
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
@SushmaSwaraj delivers a superb speech at the UN.. No theatrics, just hard facts.
#IndiaRespondsToPak
7.30 PM - 26 Sep 2016
................................................................................................

Rajdeep once said, Indians should be citizens first and disregard ideology:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
One day instead of right and left, we will all be Indian citizen first. Leave right left for march past!!
................................................................................................

You can guess what Ranganathan did next:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Wonderful to see fulsome tributes paid to original left revolutionary Shaheed Bhagat Singh by right! Atleast on one day, left-right united!

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
No BJP spokesperson or right wing ideologue available this evening. All in a hotel in south Goa! Conclave by the beach!

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Finally, even a leading RW voice accepts closing down abattoirs is a bad idea. Good piece by @TheJaggi

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Uparwala sab dekh raha hai! Spl show on religious intolerance on @aajtak at 10 pm tonight. Guests from left, right and centre! @supriyapd

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Compulsory Iday weekend reading for RW friends: Rajmohan Gandhi on Patel; for LW, Dhananjay Keer on Savarkar. Let history unite, not divide.

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Now the RW loonies will decide who to invite on shows! Wow! Hate-mongers ok, scholars not!

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Hope @SriSri is not called 'anti national' now by the RW gang. Or diff strokes for diff folks?

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
afzal on death row for 5 years, kasab for 3, but rajiv assassins on death row for 20 years. why no right wing anger? gnight
................................................................................................

Does Rajdeep like crackers or does he not like them?
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
burst crackers with the kids this evening.i know its politically correct to have a no crackers diwali,but never easy to break with tradition

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Replying to @NishkaK
@NishkaK lets not make this diwali versus xmas. love diwali too, minus crackers. just that the yearend xmas spirit is infectious.
................................................................................................

Rajdeep wants the son to pay for his father’s sin but he doesn’t want a father to pay for his son’s sins. Interesting:

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
How times change! Anil Sharma, son of Sukhram and minister in HP govt, Set to join BJP. In 1990s, Sukhram was a corruption mascot for BJP!
9:56 AM - 15 Oct 2017

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Don't agree. Why should father pay price for son? Give exemplary punishment to son based on evidence.

S L GERA @SLG46
Replying to @sardesairajdeep
BJP should remove his father from BJPChief's post to give a message to its members besides the law should take its own course against son

Religion shouldn’t matter in politics. Wait, religion does matter in politics:

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
In Gujarat, our netas seem to be clamouring to prove who is 'more' Hindu! Wish we could show more zeal in proving our Indian-ness. Gnight,

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
shahnawaz is an interesting neta, the only muslim face of bjp in lok sabha,he seems to be tiring of playing the lonely mascot of the party.

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Fact: 182 seats in Gujarat: BJP gives no seats to Muslims, Cong gives 4 so far. Muslims are 9 per cent of the population.

The same goes with Caste:
................................................................................................
Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Jai Ram Thakur is Himachal CM. Of 11 BJP CMs (outside north east), only 2 (Raghubar Das and Shivraj Singh are OBCs), rest Brahmin, Rajput, upper caste. Political India not changing just yet. #iairamthakur

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
If our politics was like our cricket team:meritocratic,hard working, united,above caste/community biases, India would be a better country!

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
did you know that the saraswat brahmins have scored more than a 100 test hundreds between them, led by sachin and gavaskar!
4:40 PM - 7 Mar 2010

Rajdeep Sardesai @sardesairajdeep
Big day for my goa. Two GSBs, both talented politicians become full cabinet ministers. Saraswat pride!! @manoharparrikar and Suresh Prabhu.
2:13 PM - 9 Nov 2014
................................................................................................

All this makes one wonder as to why does Rajdeep not simply play smart and delete the contradictory tweets before tweeting out a viewpoint, after he has been repeatedly exposed so many times for his hypocrisy. But the fact remains that there’s only so much which you can cover-up, and Anand Ranganathan would be there, lurking around, waiting to pounce upon Rajdeep’s next folly.
