Tool of Propaganda
Following their rise in power, HYDRA needed a way to enforce its propaganda in order to keep indoctrinating the people and delivering their own version of history. The Bakshi Report was one of this communication channels, and was hosted by Sunil Bakshi, an associate of Madame Hydra and The Doctor.
The show addressed the events of the Infiltration into the HYDRA Enlightenment Cultivation Center, painting the deceased Patriot as an evil terrorist and warning the population that danger could come from everywhere. Later, Bakshi also informed his audience about the Escape from the Triskelion, although he told that Madame Hydra was unharmed whereas she actually had her spine broken. The identities of the two fugitives, Daisy Johnson and Melinda May, were later disclosed in The Bakshi Report in an attempt to have the public provide tips to their whereabouts.

While The Bakshi Report was on the verge of going on air, the HYDRA Broadcasting Center was attacked by S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who used the studios to broadcast an emergency message calling for an open rebellion against HYDRA instead of the usual propaganda.
