News Channels or Waste of time


It is really difficult to decide whether the Indian News Channels are really news channels or they have become entertainment channels. I am not raising this doubt on the basis of the programs that they show which are related to the saas-bahu sitcoms on entertainment channels but on the basis of the breaking news that they are broadcasting nowadays. For example, the verdict of Aarushi-Hemraj murder case has been declared and and Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar has been sentenced life imprisonment.
I understand that this was one of the most important cases and it has its own importance but if the breaking news solely depends on what Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar are doing than it seems hilarious. Let us have a look what type of breaking news was broadcasted by various news channels:

·         Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar have a new address.
·         Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar slept at 11:30
·         Rajesh Talwar had dinner at 9:30
·         Nupur Talwar had tea in the morning.

The above breaking news is just examples of the real ones, but don’t they seem awkward, disgusting and absurd. The media has nothing to show other than what two murder culprits are doing and I don’t understand what made media think that people are interested in watching to what Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar had in dinner or what time they slept.

The level of journalism has gone really very down and this type of news shows that the electronic media is more concerned with the TRPs rather than showing news of public concern and truth.
