Getting Bored with Media


Yesterday I got annoyed while switching news channels… Almost all channeld were reporting only about Indo – Pak semi-finals as if there was no news around the world… It is all about;

  • Commandos taking over the security of stadium…
  • Dr.Manmohan Singh’s Invite to Pak’s PM & President…
  • Mr.Gilani’s acceptance to India’s Invitation…
  • Match Prediction…

etc etc… There was nothing special watching TV on a sunday which had nothing to report… Also am worried that for next two days it would only be same news… Must find out ways to stay away from TV for next 2 – 3 days…

OBAMA Mania


I’ve been on TV on all three days since it was a long festival holiday. Diwali fever was overshadowed by Obama mania. All news channels were following the US president and almost all local news were pushed behind. Even India – NZ news took a beating as I didn’t see any update on score or panel review after the match which is a common phenominon.

It was interesting to see News channels creating debates starting from;

  • Obama’s Protectionalism Policy.
  • Obama’s stand on Pakistan & China.
  • Obama’s election defeat and its impact on his India visit.

and more… There were opinions from politicians, bureaucrats, entrepreneurs & activists… It was interesting to see the perspective of different segments of people…

Though it was interesting to watch all those debates, followup on the Presidents activities & transcripts of his meeting with PM were interesting and helped me to pass my time. It became boring over a point because things were Over Covered & Over Publicized.
