Man gives birth to baby: Perfect example of media lies.

'Man gives birth to a baby'. Remember this news item? Read this indiatimes article here , and CNN-IBN news here, and Rediff news here, and ...

Read the news carefully, and you will realize, that this "man" is really a woman(yes born a woman). And only started living like a "man" in last few years by taking some hormones, and keeping all her reproductive organs intact. This being the case, this news is no-news at all. But our wonderful media (trust them to fool you) ensured that details are either ignored, or mentioned in passing, and certainly not contained in news title; thereby creating hype and providing incorrect news! Bravo, journalists. We understand you have to earn a living, but never forget what the Spidy says: 'With great power, comes great responsibility'!

We need a media regulator, but problem is we can't trust government with that, and the civil society seems non-existent in India. :(
