Mint editor R. Sukumar:

I thought I hadn’t heard him clearly.

He sensed my question even before I asked it.

Big ones, he said, moving his hands out till they were at least 10 inches in front of his chest.

I didn’t want to get technical, so I didn’t point out the obvious, that there was a difference between the two things he had described. His meaning was clear, though. The person, who worked for a business news channel, was telling me why the channel had hired a certain anchor for its morning stock market show.

I didn’t want to hear more though my friend from the channel seemed keen to share with me the unsavoury specifics of what day traders and brokers do when they watch business news channels.

I didn’t pay much heed to what he said till another person, from another business news channel, told me the same story.

She got three times her current salary, for agreeing to leave the top two buttons of her shirt unbuttoned, he said, referring to an anchor who had recently switched channels.

 The men from the two business channels were obviously bitching , talking grapes are sour . But what is wrong with the Mint editor? What is the point of cribbing about big busts  when it is all about big bulls. Buy one & get two free , thats all. He should go long on the right stock on the ticker rather than shorting on  add-ons like buttons down cleavages.

Are women reporters just commodities for television companies? I am sure women anchors do not think so. I wonder what they will have to say in response to this article.
