Too much plainspeak?
I'd praised Rahul Gandhi's candidness in an earlier post, but the fellow is already backtracking. Tehelka has effectively been made to apologise for publishing their interview with Gandhi, saying:
This seems to be a clear case of misunderstanding. Mr Gandhi thought he was having a casual chat whereas our reporter took it to be a proper interview.Hmm. So he did say all that then, it seems, only it wasn't on the record. From the readers' point of view, same difference.
