Dhobi Ghat (Ep 8) – Assam Riots

Madhu Trehan discusses the media’s coverage of Assam with Ashutosh, Punya Prasun Bajpai and Santosh Desai. Why did Hindi channels not report from Assam for the first ten days? And why was there so much music and drama in the coverage which followed? And much more.

      Using all capitals is not a very persuasive argument, unfortunately.

    Just like Madhu Trehan, we are also fed up with the excessive use of music in news reportings. Electronic media seems to have got the taste of making “Box Office Hit Films” on a daily basis out of actual incidences and naming them “NEWS”. Every Channel is behaving like an individual bollywood producer aiming to earn in crores out of each story by adding Masala to it.
