It was a time when people used know what is happening across the globe even without looking at a photograph. Truth was all they would understand and the concept of lies was inexistent. Mind the tenses my friends...yes I am talking about the past where people used to know nothing about buildups and lies . They were least bothered about TRP (television rating points).
So what is TRP?
It is a criterion that indicates the popularity of a channel or program and is useful for the "advertisers".
What this means is that now news channels do not really compete for getting the best news....they compete for getting the best TRP. Selfish gain?? yes of-course. More the TRP, more the channel earns! But what about the people who depend on the channels ability to give them their daily dose of what is really happening...well they get their dose all rite...they get their daily dose of OVERCOOKED, OVERSPICED BULLSHIT!
Journalist today genuinely do not have the conscience that the old school guys used to have. They have literally forgotten the meaning of the term NEWS. Rather they have created a new term "news ENTERTAINMENT" . Where the real story is actually not even worth a dime but it is stretched beyond all boundaries and exaggerated beyond recognition. Will they ever wake up? Is there a way to sue them for mass miss-interpretation?
JOURNALISTS OF THE DAY...WAKE UP OR SAY TO URSELF...I AM NO BETTER THAN A FELLON WHO FOOLS PEOPLE!
Well as one of the authors in the blog, I also like to cite this as an example. Am currently in Melbourne, Australia as a student. Basically am from India.
I was sad to hear about the news that said how Indian students were treated in Australia and Australians were called as racist. I happened to be in India at the end of prev year (2009) when this news made the headlines over there and created a bad impression about Australia among Indians. But i was shocked, really shocked to see the amount of lies and build ups in that news.
Since i was here in melbourne I say there were few issues that happened here and also it depends on the way our people behave with Aussies. Its really bad to put the full blame only on the Australians. Our Indians are not Innocent. We are to be equally blamed. Why to Unnecessarily blame some one else and make all bad news when are own people are not correct..
