Every afternoon when I go our office Canteen I hope to get a glimpse of the latest happenings in the world. The TV in canteen is supposed to be tuned in to a news channel. Since I don’t have a TV at home, this is the only place where I get to see some news.But what I get to see everyday is some stand up comedy reality show. I wonder if the news channel show news anymore.
Entertainment programs shown through News channels wouldn’t have been so bad considering that I get to watch something atleast. But these shows are far from funny. And to see small kids crack double meaning jokes is just not funny. Why does the society want grown-up kids? Why do we need to take away their innocence and sweet childhood from them? We are definitely giving them a chance to showcase their talents but at what cost.
Why is it that News channels like CNBC and BBC have enough stories to broadcast but desi news channels need to resort to entertainment programs?
