Behold the keepers of the nation’s conscience,
Behold the creators of the nation’s opinions!
We make them ‘aware’ of their choices
We keep them ‘informed’ 24 hours a day.
The fourth pillar of democracy they call us.
When will they ever learn?
p.s : It is said that, in a free country people get as good a Government as they deserve. I wonder if the same can be said about the Media.
(A photo I found on the net. Absolutely genuine. The Breaking News ticker at the bottom reads : “Amitabh Bachchan catches a cold”. We have a long way to go, fellow media trainees.)
