Pot bhai, please meet Mr Kettle

This is from an editorial in The Nation about the Mumbai blasts on Wednesday:

Although the Indian government talked about foreign hand and did not start the blame game as is its wont, the surprising and sad thing is that the Indian media almost with indecent haste jumped to the conclusion that the attacks were carried out by Pakistan and started spewing venom against us. Some Indian investigation officials did express their suspicion at Lashkar-e-Taiba for staging the attacks but mainly they were holding the Indian Mujahideen as the most likely perpetrators. It is clear that by pointing a finger of accusation at Islamabad, the Indian media took a totally irresponsible step perhaps for two reasons. First, a large section of it is not mature enough to see things in their true perspective and is run by unqualified so-called journalists. Secondly, these bellicose media organisations might be playing up the anti-Pakistan sentiment in India in the hope of gaining cheap popularity for the sake of improving their ratings.
