Q.

My personal opinion is that TV news reporting is not balanced and neutral. So much so I regard prime time shows in which the TV anchor along with three four participants from various political and one journalist debating a single point for about an hour as a sheer waste of time because opinions expressed by the party members are far removed from reality and the TV anchor tries to prove he is the most intelligent. I believe people sitting at homes watching these programmes and easily becoming swayed by them as pseudo-intellectuals who are also far away from reality? What do you say?

True. Many of the News Channel have stopped being news channels and are becoming like soap channels to grab advertisement. One specific channel seems to be competing with Big Boss show on how to shout, scream, display arrogance and intolerance. Sometime it is difficult to make out whether we are watching a discussion in a national news channel or some publicity hungry low level page 3 personalities trying to grab attention in a Big Boss show. The way the anchor conducts himself he reminds me of the way Rakhi Sawanth behaves.

You are right. The purpose of these debates is for the channel owners to broadcast their own views and silence those whose views are different.
Each debate, inevitably, is nothing more thana mindless sledging match between congress and BJP

VERY CORRECT infact a majority of them try to put words into the mouths of people they are interviewing - and think they have assumed the role of the judge to met out justice - includes some prominent personalities like auronb , barkha dutt etc
