One of my friend asked me recently " Dude! which news channel you trust these days?" I went with my instinct. "Do we really have a news channel ?"
In the contemporary digital era, it's being hard to find a flag bearer in terms of 4th estate. Their explicit advocacy is in the shadows of political parties. The media houses are in the race of TRP. They are mastering in masking the facts with their own theories to run a show of entertainment.
There was a time where press and news media played a prominent role in making the nation literate about other side of the walls with their powerful writings. Even was a respectable weapon in the freedom of struggle for Independence, with no fence. Now that pen is in the hands of political favors.
A news where it should be an informative, imperative and revelatory with in the lines of national integrity, is loosing its soul. The show runners are in the exercise of hypnotizing the viewers, with their ideology, theories and interest of benefits. They are acting as a key for the masterminds to overshadow the issues of common man who are in the race of survival of the fittest, with their useless topics.
In the land of agriculture, farmers are loosing their trust of life. Poverty threshold never lines upwards. Scams are being inherent in the political governance. Sighting in caste, gender, region, religion and every thread of society. How far a news media strived to minimize them? By just telecasting an episode? Don't fool yourself by misinterpreting the business with news.
A news channel programme for a discussion on a social issue by inviting few representatives from either parties. But it never allows a healthy debate. The anchor bullets at one side as if he/she wants to compete the opposition party and pass out a judgement right away with no sense of judiciary system. Even a school student understands the meaning of debate, but not these so called reputed anchors and media houses.
Boss! you are not in a chair of competition. You are an act of advocate to bring the facts in front of people by allowing perceptions from both the sides of coin. Let viewers decide the conspirators. If you really have a transparent evidence against a crime, show the viewers, submit to the police department and help in the investigation to bring out the truth and convicting the offender. But You can not be judgmental. Politicians are already busy in balancing the toxicity of society, please don't be a part of it.
