Flash News!

"The one function TV news performs very well is that when there is no news we give it you with the same emphasis as of there were."  – David Brinkley

These days I have retuned my television channels. News channels figure right after entertainment channels. Actually the entertainment channels must follow news channels as there are more entertainment in news channels which I will not even find in entertainment channels, there's sex, sleaze, sports, fantasy, aspirations, music, movies, celebrity lifestyle, night life etc. You name it, the news channel have neatly packaged news/entertainment just for your viewing pleasure!

Daily I am bombarded with news with dramatic effect, there is a haunting background score (puts Illayaraja to shame), sordid visuals, glamorous looking news hostess/host and sense of suspense.Degree in journalism might not get you to your dream job in news room, for that you may need a degree in theater!
