Don’t ask me, ask her. Don’t ask me, ask him.

How differently can two journalists of the same house and the same media house think on the same issue at the same time, said issue being West Bengal governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi‘s stand on violence in the State?

Exhibit A is Rajdeep Sardesai, editor-in-chief of CNN-IBN, seven hours ago from the web.

Exhibit B is Sagarika Ghose, senior editor of CNN-IBN, seven hours ago from the web.

For sceptics of the media who suspect a grand liberal conspiracy behind everything that English language media houses do, M/s Sardesai & Ghose are husband and wife.

Sundeep Dougal*, who follows the couple on Twitter and sent us these links, says the two Tweets landed exactly one after the other on his Twitter feed, with not a single twit in between!

Is economic downturn the best time for redesign?

28 July 2009

It’s the season for the redesign of websites. In just the last three weeks, Rediff.com, The Times of India and Hindustan Times have gone in for a overhaul of their home pages.

Outlook*, the weekly newsmagazine published from Delhi, has just joined the pack. Above is the new home page created by editor Sundeep Dougal and his team*; below is the old one.

Gone is the old, uneven, cluttered four-column grid with ads spilling out of smaller screens. In its place is a more modular, customisable homepage with clear demarcations of categories, and lots of white space.
