Where are we going?
I have been thinking about this for quite sometime.
Where is the Indian Media going? Is entertainment and sex the thing for news agencies???
To supplement my theory check out Rediff
In rediff there is an article on 'Akash test fired for 4th time'. This is at 3rd place. Top place goes to 'Costliest Mobile Phones' and second place to 'Goa enchants bollywood'.
It is better to say less about Indiatimes. They have articles on 'Lesbian employee sues Microsoft', 'Hottest Singles', 'Gimme whatever'. And Indiatimes has been rated as the No 1 Indian portal :-(
Does it mean indians are interested in browsing only for entertainment and sex news majorly? Aren't they that much interested in other news items?
Is this why Times Of India is still being called a newspaper, when there is not much of news in it?
I am confused. Media always take the role of policeman of the world. But who will correct the media if they are wrong??
You know, many people in bangalore feel 'The Hindu' as boring :-( Not that I am too much attached to Hindu. I cant forget their editorial on Shankaracharya's arrest. The editorial said everyone is equal in front of the law and they should be treated normally etc. But why did the Hindu management disappear when a warrant was issued by the Tamilnadu Police. Forget the motive behind it. If they are talking about law obiding citizens, then they should also follow the same right???
Why is no one questioning the media??
