Lazy Journalism

" The TV channel now picks a 'pumpkin' of the day, and invites 4-8 people to talk about the 'nonsense' the pumpkin spoke about. We discuss that matter which has nothing to do with 'education, health or society and employment' "- this was the summary of the EML (extramural lecture) speaker of the day on Sat, 17th Jan 2015 at  IIT Madras.  The conclusion was that the journalism has become "Lazy Journalism".  Instead of going to a countryside to cover the problems faced by people, this is the simplest way to keep running the channel.

I can not tell the name of the speaker but have a photo, as we are not supposed to give any details of the lecture (as per circular: Unauthorized photography, video-recording or reportage of the event is prohibited- !).

‘Has 2014 Election Really Changed India’ was the title of the lecture. The lecture also talked about ' some one did not loose any opportunity to loose all the opportunities.' etc. There was talk about the media trial- . 800 boxes that tell the TRP (television rating points). The black money being within the country (simplest example is the portion of the money given in cash (without records) for a purchase of land/ real state- builders) and the elections being fought with the help of the black money etc.
