STHAMBINCHINA BHAGYANAGARAM... HYDERABAD UNREST... BREAKING NEWS: HYDERABAD LO PARISTHITHI UDRIKTHAM... ASHTADIGBANDHANAM: NAGARAM NALUVAIPULA POLICE LU...
Am I boring u folks? Because by this time you would have gotten irritated enough times already with these kinda scrolling news, headers and news reports on our own HYDERABAD in TV channels and newspapers. Now a million questions will clog your mind - like, why is this unrest prolonging? Why are people getting frightened to step in to this city? Why are corporate companies and investors avoiding Hyderabad?
The only answer to all these questions is the situation created by the fractious politicians and media who are more responsible and honest towards their bosses, and who crave for money keeping the truth at stake rather than working for the benefit of the people.
On investigating the suicides of the students in Telangana for Telangana, what comes out is that most of them spent sleepless nights in front of the idiot boxes watching the news. This shows how much impact the channels are creating on the minds of the people who think that whatever is said by the news channels is the gospel truth. Even a few channels that are running ads urging people and protesters for calm, are showcasing the situation in a horrifying manner.
These acts of the media always engender controversies and trigger long debates on their responsibilities. The provocative style of the statements, the usage of strong words and the reading of news emotionally may increase a channel's TRPs, but the bosses should think what its impact would be on people.
These channels and newspapers, in the mask of social responsibility, are killing the society, and this is happening with our own Hyderabad too. Being the mediators between the truth and the people, between the information and people, and between the powers-that-be and people, the media should feel more responsible and act according to the situation rather than cashing in on the situation by sensationalising it by showing by projecting every thing larger than life.
The media's irresponsibility is not new - when the NSG, police and ARMY were combating the terrorists on 26/11, the reporters never felt pinch of pain in reporting right from the spot of action. These peanut brains couldn't realize that they had turned the eyes of the terrorists, who were planning according to the moves of the NSG. It was really shameful to glorify themselves, as if they are some superheroes, for bringing in the news LIVE.
In the present situation too, the same thing is happening, but in a different way. If an outsider looks at the news on Hyderabad, he will definitely get terrorised with the way they are portraying it. This irresponsible and mindless war of channels for TRPs is causing great damage to Hyderabad, and especially to students who are definitely going to lose job opportunities.
A time will come when all these students and leaders who are jumping in to newsrooms and TV sets yelling out at the Central Government and making statements as dangerous, disastrous and provaocative as possible, will realize the damage they did to themselves with all these filthy statemnets they gave to the media.
Many companies and investors are avoiding Hyderabad, which used to be their first preference, by looking upon the situation prevailing in the city. This is where the media should step in - to stop projecting things as if the whole of Hyderabad is under fire or caught in unrest, and specify that only it is only in some parts of Hyderabad that unrest is prevailing.
What is currently happening here is the other way round. BUT AFTER ALL, WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THE MEDIA WHICH MADE 26/11 ATTACK A LIVE REALITY SHOW.
I URGE ALL THE HYDERABADIS TO SPREAD THIS WORD AND WRITE IN TO PROTECT OUR HYDERABAD.
