Show(ing) off!

Just when some TV channels in India are extending their role and taking up activism for justice, this news from the west comes as a shock. Makes me wonder...

To rake in those viewers for a show
Just how far should a media house go?
How low can one stoop,
To titillate with a ‘scoop’?
Well just read this piece and you’ll know!

A related article can be read here. Thank God ( and the public) that good sense prevailed!

    The book 'Evening News' by Arthur Hailey deals with this issue very well and shows how far the media goes to sell itself.
