Media ignores Middle-East, Kashmir and Hard News

The national press and electronic media in particular largey ignored the events in Middle-East. The bombing of PM's office in Palestine by Isreal was not given its due in columns or bytes.

Unfortunately, the killing of a physically challenged musician in Kashmir also got ignored. He was killed in firing by security forces. Inayatullha, 25, was a familiar name to those listening Radio Kashmir.

Is it that the editors feel enough of real news. That's why any story about NRI like Mittal or the 'sizzling' Rakhi Sawant would fetch more eyeballs!

हमारी पहल रंग लाई....कल रात (बुधवार) एक सुधी दर्शक ने हमें ये बताया कि किस तरह जानामाना चैनल एनडीटीवी एम्स में डाक्टरों की हड़डताल से एक व्यक्ति की मौत के बाद खबर चलाए जा रह था। वहां मौजूद संवाददाता ने ये जताया कि लोग असंवेदनशील हो चले है और कोई भी मदद को कोई आगे नहीं आ रहा है। मीडियायुग ने पहल करते हुए चैनल हेड से ये बात बताई। फिर आज सुबह ही उस व्यक्ति के परिवार वालो के लिए आर्थिक मदद एनडीटीवी ने जुटाई। कही न कही ये हमारा विश्वास मजबूत करता है, कि टीवी मीडिया में संवेदनशीलता बची है। हमें एक कदम खुद उठाने में केवल सोचने की जरूरत होती है...आपकी एक लिखित पहल हमें मजबूत बना सकती है। गंभीर विषयों पर अपने लेख हमें भेंजे।

well, does the anchors and the great editors sitting on their editorial chairs have the knowledge and information to tell the people anything about these issues. Majority of these guys wont be able to differentiate between Iran and Iraq.
