It’s right to be wrong?

The right wing is — judging by its Twitter presence — astonishing. In its ability to insist it is right even when it is wrong, that is.

A good 24 hours after the ‘Kanhaiya Kumar chanted azaadi’ slogans thing peddled by some channels was pretty thoroughly discredited, there’s still a bunch of folks — including, sadly, a few journalists — recycling that same adulterated video, and insisting on their original ‘sedition’ charge.

I get that it is hard — particularly when your loyalties are involved — to find out you’ve been wrong. But must you act like the guy who went to the zoo, saw a camel, shook his head and said “There ain’t no such animal”?

But then again — grace is not a characteristic anyone ever accused you of, so why should I be surprised?
