The years 2008-10 were a turning point in TV journalism. We saw the rise of opinionated news anchors driving TRP and with that began the demise of TV journalism in India.
What was initially restricted to a couple of channels became a template that was copied by channels in every language. While all of them adopted a FOX news template to begin with, now they’ve surpassed it all.
Now we turn it on to face a blast of misinformation and outright lies. What a shame. TV news is dead.
