Ultrabrown on the depth and length of media coverage devoted to the Indian Budget exercise. “So the wall-to-wall media attention to the Indian budget last week struck me as bizarre. New Delhi released the budget last week to 20-page special sections in mainstream newspapers about taxes on gram and cement and Anna Nicole-like coverage on TV. The minutiæ of spreadsheets got more coverage than 9/11.”
