expected rit?

One sweet chap called Lt. Parthiban – an Indian army officer dies while guarding the border in kashmir heights..in an encounter with terrorists (like afzal)and most of u wud not even have known it..for our visual media wud not make big noise over this nor our MSM wud have flashed it bright and big for any one to notice..
But compare that to the ‘to_be_hanged’ to ‘may_be_hanged’ Afzal and u wud know everything: right from what his wife had for breakfast to his kid’s dream to what he did in the last hour in the prison..
What are we reducing ourselves in to??

    Well, this is not anything new. The media is going to report on stuff that is sensational, exciting, whatever gets their rating up. Even if they reported it, who would care? It is the same problem with the US media too.
