Congress leader Shashi Tharoor calls journalists scum; then clarifies he was not attacking the entire media
Shashi Tharoor lost his cool and abused media persons, as they were questioning about the polygraph test on the aides of his late wife Sunanda Pushkar. All this happened on Wednesday night at around 10:30 when a Times Now channel reporter asked him questions regarding the polygraph test which irritated him.
In a tweet followed by this incident Tharoor called the reporters as scum.

Later Shashi Tharoor took to Twitter to explain that he was not attacking the entire media but only targeting a particular TV channel whose reporter asked him the questions.

This is not the first time Shashi Tharoor is doing such an act. Earlier this year, when he went to attend the Apeejay Kolkata Literary Festival, and was asked about his wife's death, there also he raised fingure at the media saying, "I will definitely blame the advent of news television for transforming the nature of the Indian press, including the print. You are seeing a race to the bottom in terms of the most sensationalistic, the most voyeuristic, the most headline grabbing attention that will temporarily get you a TRP or two," as reported by NDTV.
