Indian Whiz S&P President Deven Sharma is not from BITS Pilani Rajasthan

This news item is brief to pay respect to the most famous and best ever Journalism quote “A news story should be like a mini skirt on a pretty woman - Long enough to cover the subject but short enough to be interesting”.

Sept. 2, 2007 - PRLog -- Mr Deven Sharma who has been named as President of McGraw – Hill’s Standard & Poor graduated from Birla Institute of Technology (BIT) Mesra in Jharkhand state of India and not from Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani in Rajasthan State of India.

In journalism, there has always been a tension between getting it first and getting it right and in this age where old news is cold news, priority is to get it first from anywhere to everywhere rather than get it right.

Hope the seasoned journalist Chidanand Rajghatta and Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) as well as other media who were in a hurry make a note of this.

In the case of News, one should always wait for the sacrament of confirmation which is in line with the Walter Lippmann quote “There can be no higher law in journalism than to tell the truth and to shame the devil”.
