THT Misleading Online Readers for Ad-Money

June 21st, 2009 2 comments

Popular Nepali blogs like Mysansar.com have been accusing The Himalayan Times and Annapurna Post of publishing news biased towards India. Being a foreign invested organization, it is likely that the news it covers would be as per foreign interest. It is an important issue that needs to be researched by Nepalese government followed by proper action. This post is about bad business ethics of THT, but a different one than above.

It is common practice for online media to place advertisement on their web-site. That is their only source of revenue. But THT is using inappropriate technique to increase their online revenue from advertisement. It is required that advertisements that are cost-per-click (publishers are paid for every click on ads) be identified clearly as advertisement. On the contrary, THT is intentionally displaying ads as news with the motive of increasing the number of clicks on the ads. See the Google ad below which the THT featured as ‘Related News’.

हामी

June 9th, 2009 1 comment

बिभिन्न स्रजकहरुको सृजना पाठकहरु समछ लैजाने प्रयास अन्तर्गत रङीनचराका सकृय सदस्य दीपक पौडेलको रचना ‘हामी’ आज यहाँ पस्किएको छु। तपाईंहरु पनि आफ्नो लेख-रचना रङीनचरामा प्रकाशित गर्न चाहनु हुन्छ भने कृपया rangeenchara@gmail.com मा ईमेल गरेर पठाउनु होस।

सपना थियो हामी सम्बृद्ध हुने
आकांक्षा थियो चौतर्फी बिकासको
थियो चाहिएको तरक्की जलस्रोतमा
आवस्यकता हो सुधारको शिक्षा र रोजगारिमा !!

छ उन्नत जनचेतनाको स्तर पनि
छ भएको स्थापना गणतन्त्रको पनि
छ सम्पन्न भएको संबिधानसभाको निर्वाचन
छ पर्याप्त्तता नेतागण र दलहरुको पनि !!

तर,

बन्द र चक्काजाम स्वभाविक बनेको छ
अभाब र महंगीले सगरमाथा मात गर्न थालेको छ
लोडसेडिङले किर्तिमान कायम गरेको छ
विश्वाशको संकट झन गहीरिएको छ!!

अग्रगमनको नारा दिनेहरू
सर्बसत्ताबाद्को डन्का पिटनेहरू
प्रदेश र सँघियताको नारादिनेहरू
नेपथ्यबाट फोहोरी खेलखेल्नेहरू !!
सबै चलमलाइरहेछन फगत चलमलाईरहेछन

राष्ट्रियता खोक्रो भईरहेछ
अखण्डता चोइटीरहेछ
सार्वभौमीकता धर्मराइरहेछ
मुलुक पराधिन बनीरहेछ !!

हामी टुलु टुलु हेरीरहेछौ
केबल हेरीरहेछौ !!

-दीपक पौडेल
