Absurdities of Present Day News

I had been thinking for sometime about the growing number of ridiculous, inane, and otherwise nonsensical absurdities that fill the daily TV news channels and print or electronic media.

Wondering if it was just me.

I think we started to simply accept them without much thought and the news media grew on to them.

The absurdity of this uncontrolled media is showing in the nation’s psyche. And if I may say so, the phenomena is world wide. The space for “Centre – Thinking” seems to be shrinking fast in all countries and not only in India. Trumpism started it openly, BREXIT followed it and now it has started to open and spread in many parts of the globe – Germany, Scandinavian countries, Spain and so on.

The absurdity when becomes disrupter is when it really becomes point of concern. Disrupters have found many ways to convince and attract people in all walks of life. I have been the victim of this disruption in thinking for many months, may be few years now. And therefore I have avoided to write anything lest my feelings show up in my words. But today I found the courage to overcome that fear and trying to find the root cause of the same. And I feel the root cause is these news providers – may be TV news channels and print or electronic media. Everyone seems to be taking sides instead of reporting the news these media reporters and anchors have been taking sides.
