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.

    True...I love Hailey's novels btw.
