इस सप्ताह के प्रमुख मद्दों पर यह न्यूज़लॉन्ड्री हिंदी की दूसरी चर्चा है. इसमें भाग लिया आजतक डिजिटल के संपादक पाणिनी आनंद, ओपिनियन लेखक आनंद वर्धन, न्यूजलॉन्ड्री संपादक अतुल चौरसिया और संवाददाता अमित भारद्वाज ने. पाणिनी ने दिल्ली मेट्रो के मजेंटा लाइन के उद्घाटन समारोह में दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल को न्यौता न देने को न्यूनतम राजनीतिक शुचिता के खत्म होने की ओर इशारा किया. वहीं ओपिनियन राइटर आनंद वर्धन ने सलमान खान के भंगी समुदाय पर असंवेदनशील टिप्पणी का सामाजशास्त्र पेश करने की कोशिश की. उन्होंने कहा कि विदेशी में भारतीय लोगों पर होने वाले नस्लीय हमलों पर भारत को बोलने का तबतक अधिकार नहीं है जब वह खुद अपने यहां विभिन्न समुदायों, लिंग, जाति आदि के प्रति संवेदनशील नहीं हो जाता. न्यूज़लॉन्ड्री संपादक अतुल चौरसिया ने एक तरफ जहां ट्रिपल तलाक को ऐतिहासिक फैसला बताया वहीं उन्होंने ओवैसी को सदन के अंदर एक अन्य सांसद द्वारा पागल कहे जाने पर चिंता जताई. उनकी चिंता इस बात पर रही कि सभापति ने ऐसी अमर्यादित टिप्पणी पर कोई एतराज क्यो नहीं जताया. सप्ताह के एक अन्य मुख्य मसले, कुलभूषण जादव की पत्नी और मां के मिलने पर अमित भारद्वाज ने दोनों देशों की मीडिया की भूमिका पर प्रश्न उठाया. एक तरफ जहां भारतीय मीडिया उग्र था वहीं पाकिस्तानी मीडिया भी कम उन्मादी नहीं रहा.

PM Narendra Modi hit backs at Mani Shankar Aiyar’s ‘Neech’ remark by stating that Mani Shankar Aiyar portrays the Congress’ ‘Mughlai mindset.’  Abhinandan Sekhri, Madhu Trehan, Manisha Pande and Atul Chaurasia try to analyse what is election campaigning and what is not? Abhinandan does an analysis of how Indian political leaders behave differently when they are with US leaders and when they are in India. Madhu Trehan discusses Nitish Kumar’s opinion of nation-wide alcohol ban and what it can lead to? Manisha points out that the condom ad by Sunny Leone was the idea behind the condom ad ban between 6 am to 10 pm. Atul feels it was actually a solution to a nationwide problem as the condom was a dogma in previous times which got removed due to such advertisements. Anand Ranganathan talks about Ram Setu bridge and how it has been reported as man-made by a US science channel. The panel discusses TV news in India and how the opinion polls, exit polls, and polls of polls are a useless discussion including their favourite channels, Republic and Times Now. Listen up, there is a song dedicated in the end to all our wonderful subscribers.
