外文标题：Go home Indian media, Nepal Twitterati says
NEW DELHI: If the Indian media has devoted wall-to-wall coverage of the Nepal earthquake, they were shown their place on social media on Sunday, the top trending hashtag being #GoHomeIndianMedia, which until evening had collected about 144,000 tweets.
The online outrage is connected to the accusation that Indian TV channels have engaged in “insensitive” reporting of the aftermath of the earthquake. The TV channels, with their penchant for shoving microphones at suffering victims, have been accused of gross misconduct, in some situations even confronting security forces at the site of the devastation. They have intruded into family cremations, questioned grieving relatives, and generally shown a picture that many have found to be cringe-worthy.
The Indian media, and here a distinction would have to be made between the TV channels and the print media, have also been accused of showing the efforts of the Indian Army, and Indian disaster-relief personnel at work in Nepal, in a glowing light.
Some of the tweets were scathing — “dangerous insensitive journalism without any humane elements, such a tragedy in the aftermath of one”; “Indian media ruining harmony, neighbourhood, respect and affection between Nepal-India by their unethical journalism”; “Dear vultures, you’ve picked the bones of the dead clean. Go home now”.
“Stop your media-quake!! We are already in pang by devastating earthquake and your news are not helping the victims!!” said an anguished tweet.
Another trnding topic was #DontComeBackIndianMedia and this from from the Indian public.LOL
And for TRP these #Presstitues can do anything…..

Indian Media deserves this. Coverage of the disaster was good, but the more you enter into TRP formula, broader becomes the exaggeration, insensitivity and stupidity.
