Level of Journalism!

CNN = Politics
Program: Situation Room by Wolf Blitz
Discussion is on: Obama getting his new dog in the White House.
A supposedly 'dog expert' giving his views on various aspects!
In the back ground, the Obama family strolling in the gardens of White House with the new dog.
Captions being shown: "Obama's 100 days; The most popular dog in the world.

What an issue! CNN claims that it is equal to politics (CNN = Politics). What a topic to discuss in "Situation Room"! They kept discussing and out of disgust I switched off the TV set and starting focusing on the tea and pakoras that my wife had just prepared. This also happens when you have TV channels running for 24 hours! They have to show something, I believe!
This is today April 18, 2009 at 5:50 PM (Central Time).

Government System

I read following lines  by someone on rediff.com in a article and found these lines very true, please go through these lines and express your views on the same.

An Olympic shooter wins Gold (Only a game) & Government gives him 3 Crores
Another Shooter dies, fighting with terrorists (Saving our country and our live) & government pays his family 5 lakhs.
1. Do not worry about those who have come thru boats...
Our forces can easily defeat them.
WORRY about those who have come thru votes....
Those are our REAL ENEMIES....
2. What a shame and disgrace to every citizen of India that the elite
NSG Force was transported into ordinary BEST buses, whereas our
cricketers are transported into state of the art luxury buses, these
Jawans lay down their lives to protect every Indian and these cricketers
get paid even if they lose a match, we worship these cricketers and
forget the martyrdom of these brave Jawans.
The Jawans should be paid the salaries of the cricketers and the
cricketers should be paid the salaries of the Jawans.
3. An ace shooter shoots and gets gold medal, govt gives 3cr, another
shooter dies while shooting terrorist, govt gives 5 lakh.
WHO DESERVES MORE? Huh.. This is our India....
4. Too much spent on Politicians security but too less on common man.
Please be a patriot and forward this to everyone u know.
Really great!!!!!!!!!!! Hats off to India !!!!!!!!!!!!

 

AND THE MEDIA SHOULD FORGET ABOUT MUMBAI NOW AND PUBLISH OTHER NEWS
