It is, however, socially rewarded in terms of acceptance, identification, and partnership in a majority. Hence, stupidity will keep on increasing. Our ancestors were smarter than us, and our children will be far, far dumber. And it’ll keep happening.
It’s called evolution, baby.
It’s your future.

This website called Faking News exposes them no end.

They do go overboard. How many of us new about Lehman Brothers before the credit crisis? Some dailies have even gone to the extent of publishing speculation & assumptions.. sounds like they need to publish something just for the name sake…

Journalism can be so powerful and constructive, sadly that aint the store over here.

I definitely agree with you, Indian media had just swept with the most talked about scietific test of the century. It was sheer waster to journalistic writing/manpower into fiasco which had not even happened. I also heard a news about a village girl getting a cardia arrest about thiking too much about it, all because of media hype. There are couple of TV channels whcih are creating false hype and most of the people know them already..

Other journos take it for granted and enjoy it, often misusing it as you have mentioned. Like in the Arushi case, criticism of each individual fallacy, each government policy and each corporate step is written by a few and read by millions everyday. It would be nice to hope for responsible and mature journalists and editors, but then mature news will not sell more papers or TV channels. . . so I am not too hopeful.

Majority of the news are breaking news for them. They should think before marking any news a breaking news!

They should break from the habit of putting everything under breaking news.

The people should be able to sue these media magnates off the face of this earth for this kind of irresponsible unethical reporting standards.

Our indian news channel’s are literally mis using their freedom ; There should be a law to sue them by any company/individual if the information published is not a fact.
Am living near French border and absolutely there is no TENSION among people here with respect to BIG BANG.No news agency/TV channel is spreading rumour’s related to doomsday.Geneva is more safer than any other place in the globe and the govt/people think even before breathing.We need not worry and pester our head for doomsday and all.We all here believe BIGBANG is an experiment being carried out by scientits to discover how the universe would have formed due to the BIGBANG theory.Thats all about it and NO WORRIES, RELAX….

if you want to see real news you have omit breaking news.

it will have the same fate like hyper mall in cities closing one by one, or

may be they will will have to pay viewers to see that perticular channel.

God Save indian News Channel.

Only DD News is the real news channel.
