Take a look at how the two newspapers tackled the recent news regarding 'curing' a baby of HIV. (I currently do not have access to the print version of both the papers, hence I am posting screenshots from the respective sites)The Hindu says:
____________Times of India goes on to 'ruffle up' readers with this 'stronger' reporting:
While a little more appealing headline might not hurt everyone, this is blatantly misleading on the part of TOI. When it comes to issues like this, it is as also a question of the ability to understand scientific news well before pouncing to make one's own half-baked conclusions from it, though the news might be welcoming to humanity. Notice how the Hindu repeatedly, and categorically stresses on the word 'functionally cured', and explains why it is claimed so.
I don't stop with the headline: Take a look at the utter army of cliches and pretty much gaseous sentences that start the reporting. Add to that a generic image that serves particularly no purpose whatsoever with regard to the main subject.
Finally, since this is the internet, I'd like to say that I am in no way affiliated to either of these papers, and this is my personal (and I hope sensible) opinion based on my observations.
