Most of the news channels were, or rather, are running the news of Sai Baba's death every minute. Talking about his life, how he produced 'blessed' ash, gold coins, watches and other paraphernalia out of thin air.

I was surprised to see news channels do this. I mean don't they have some responsibility about airing news with substance. Sai Baba was after all, some 'god-man' who proclaimed himself 'holy', 'announced' his previous and next births, whose techniques of producing things from thin air are practiced by ordinary magicians.

Yes, he has helped people by providing for their needs, by being charitable. Nevertheless about his 'immortality', aren't they misleading the general population?
