Sensationalization

I have personally come to hate the media over the past couple of years ... lets say the past decade ...
 
News is not reported ... Its SENSATIONALIZED ....
 
serious news takes a back seat and sensationizable news take the drivers seat ....
 
there have been so many incidents of small incidents being blown out of proportion while the more important and greater issues are left untouched or shoved under the carpet since they dont raise any eyebrows now ... (and no body cares to make that happen too) 
 
The brutal attacks and murder on Indian Students  abroad is a case in point ... i was about to write about my thoughts when i chanced upon another blog post which almost entirely matched my thought. So rather than re-inventing the wheel ...click here for that post by Gaurav Sabnis ...
 
There have been several such instances where i feel the media has over-played their role ... rather than reporting ... they have sensationalized and hyped up certain aspects of the news item ... which distorts the real picture ...
 
News today represents an extremely bleak picture of the Human race ... any alien race catching the signal of the news channels might just decide to wipe us out of existence in an instant rather than allow us to give each other a slow death ... spiritually, mentally and physically (Pollution is a slow poison too)
