I am not saying all media channels are immoral and manipulative but a certain section of the media(take it as a major section) definitely is. People in media are bothered about their raise, their promotions, their deadlines, the pressure from their bosses and of course competition from other TV News Channels. Believe it or not, the maximum amount of dirty games is played in the world of news channels than entertainment channels. There is cut throat competition in the media where everyone wants a scoop, a sleazy bit of information that can be manipulated cleverly for maximum effect.

Cheap gimmics that pay a lot, like "sms your opinon" about whether such a person should be behind the bars or not, play on public mentality and influence their opinons.One of the channels displayed personal Smses of, the murdered girl, Arushi Talwar, on television? Who gave them the right to do so? Can you believe certain sections of media act as judges of the court and pass their verdict even before th ...more

Yes , Many channels are quit manipulative, they torcher the person by asking them same & same questions. and bringing out the wrong meanings of the statements of the person. Sometimes they quitely interfear in the personal life of the person. They think that they ( Media people) are the only person "DUDH KE DHULEY".

Definitely, media is seeking cheap publicity. Aarushi Hemraj murder case is the best example where media (news channels as well as newspapers) was trying its best to make viewers and readers hooked on. Creative minds were making unnecessarily stories like wife swapping, father killing his own child etc. that we better forget. Only that family knows the pain that they have suffered. What we can do is to identify the channels and papers that are into cheap publicity and avoid them as much as we can, thereby bringing down their TRPs.
