Even as I was trying to get used to life without spending time in front of the tv not due to choice though (our tv had conked off), I regretted missing all the lively debates on issues and non issues. When I happened to watch a couple of news channels while at a friend’s place, I was quite cut up at the way the media was making an issue of the language used by ‘spiritual’ leaders and women haters among our politicians whose mindset is like a site that is static, never updated for what ever reason. Can we expect anything better from such a tribe?
Well, if the media has to play a watch dog’s role in the real sense, it should watch for and project burning issues which require urgent solutions and not watch the language used by so called ‘leaders’ who come in all shapes and sizes and lure gullible sections of society into being their followers.
