Nationally and internationally we have seen a rising debate on nationalism versus free speech. Varying from news channels to newspapers- CNN (IBN) “the fanatic” to the Times “Nation wants to know”- the stories sound familiar. The headlines are the same, the language identical, and the narrative interchangeable.
The news channels in an attempt to bank on TRP’s churn stories out of nowhere to an issue of national importance. Only the names change, geography changes and the genre, but the stories remain the same. You are watching the television from March 2016 in March 2017 frame to frame. For example ideology clashes, separatists –liberals -conservatives, protestors ‘for and against’, violence, police (in-action), character assassination, bullying, chaos, doomsday, attack of the presidents, Oil… err sorry we already have democracy here!
