I was recently pinged by a friend to read a very interesting blog from Harini Calamur called POV.
I agree 100% with her views. The traditional media has made the entire eposide look like a live reality show. Everything is about ratings. Channels like India TV are outregious.
Do check out this link.
At the same time I must appreciate the work social media has done to get the reality to the world. Sites like Facebook, Orkut, Instablogs and thousands of bloggers have done a great job getting the correct information to the users.
What do you think about this ? Did the media respond similarly to 9/11 in the US?
