Media Circus

The Daily Prompt: Ready, Set, Done.10 minutes. You and your keyboard (or smartphone. Or tablet. Or pen and paper). No pauses, no edits, no looking back: it’s free-write time!

So much freedom! The whole world seems to be fighting for this word. Yet WP guys give it away with so ease! Thanks for that!

In this ten minute sprint, I would give my opinion about a new trend in Indian news channels. The trend is about inviting panelists from across the border. The situation on the border is tense. I don’t know whom to blame. But the fighting has started. It looks to escalate day by day. Not at all looking good. Yet our media houses invite people from the other side, some of them members of ruling govt. and others retired army men. What kind of discussion can I expect? Of course no one will come on an enemy TV and accept that they were wrong and India is right. I don’t understand what point these media houses are trying to drive home.

I would appreciate if someone can through some light on this new trend!

  1. I think media people, barring some exceptions like Arnab, will do anything to increase their ratings…its better to ignore such discussions…skim through the main news and make your own opinions..
