Yellow Journalism

Dear M/s Purie/Chandra/Mukherjea/Roy,

In this new year, we'll highly appreciate if you people concentrate on presenting news to the viewers in more 'humane' manner, and do not make news spicy and juicy at the expense of human emotions, we are sick of watching so many such TV shows (Khabardaar, RED ALERT, Investigation, Jurm, SANSANI, FIR etc etc.) which totally depend on sleaze and exploited human emotions, broaden your view pleaseee, stop making mockery of people who have already suffered a lot , stop presenting them in studio for sorting out family feud(remember Arif-Gudiya issue),, please raise the standard of content presented. We are not interested in knowing the intimate details of Rahul Gandhi's girlfriend, but kindly make us more aware about our rights, about our duties and responsibilities, tell us how our chosen Government is faring in most transparent manner, tell us how our MPs and MLAs are doing for their constituency, call them in studio ask them questions coz its the right of tax-paying common man to know how his hard-earned money is being spent.

Stop glamorizing the evil, stop presenting criminals as some sort of heroes. Stop showing us the live police raids on massage parlors, stop showing us enacted versions of crime, which took place. We are not interested in knowing how blue-films are made and distributed, we are not interested in knowing how flesh-trade flourishes. Please stop all this nonsense.
If you have then information then present that to authorities and follow up with them.

Why do we have to flip 3-4 channels to know the actual news, why each channel have a different story to tell, why can't we trust just one channel, its all coz of ever deteriorating standards of information presented to us, in the race-of-me first the information gets twisted and channel loses creditability.

Stop this commercialization,.. Raise the bar, and bring back the good old days of fair & transparent news, presented in most unambiguous and uncomplicated manner.

Lighten up this year - Buy a bathroom scale that lies
