No News Debates!

First published on 29.01.2017

I started watching TV news debates as a source of entertainment, and it never graduated to knowledge. I think TV news debates are as bad as addiction. They are also morally corrupt because they make it very convenient for the media to shed their actual job of filing ground reports. Moreover, most of the people appearing in the news debates are frivolous celebrities or make up activists or politicians. Real heroes die fighting silent wars elsewhere. This appropriation of media space by these good for nothing “elites” is also depreciative of the real work being done by the ground warriors. Inspite of my addiction to news debates, I have decided not to watch them again ever (nobody would call me in news debates, so I need not worry about it, but, anyways, just for record I shall not appear in them either). Books, articles, blogs, etc, should help get rid of this addiction.
