Yes :-

  • News channels sensationalize everything. If any crime happens, news channels will send their reporters and do their own investigation on TVs. This misleads public and causes trouble for police and those who are involved in the incident.
  • If anyone accuses any celebrity, the news will be breaking news for days on news channels. This is an infringement of personal rights. News channels are ignoring the basic thing that the allegations are not proved yet.
  • Reporters often try to make victims speak on the incident. Even in the cases of death, reporters rush to the incident and ask questions the victim’s family, when they really need some space and time to grieve.
  • News channels create hype over petty issues, and creates panic among public.
  • Some news channels management intentionally create rumors just to get views for their channel.

No :-

  • News channels help in maintaining transparency of governance, and provides plenty of information to public. In the process, they try to grab the attention of public for the news that have importance. So, breaking news are a part and parcel of news channels to keep public informed about the important happenings of society.
  • As news channels try to do their own investigation, police will be careful to do their duties well and they cannot protect the criminal.

Conclusion :-

As the number of news channels are growing, there is a huge competition among them. As a result, news channel owners are crossing their limits to increase views. Though, news channels are keeping people aware of the happenings in society, there is a line for everything. News channels should follow ethics while doing their work.

    Every now and then we listen to corruption cases being exposed. How are they being exposed? Yes by reporters who take risks and try to find the inside and privileged information. In almost all of the cases this info is a very sensitive and confidential one, not for the ears of the public. Sometimes to learn the truth we need to break some laws and rules. “Sometimes” being the keyword here. Having said that the media should be very much aware of the ethics that they need to follow and only follow the leads that are worthwhile, important and are sure of giving the results as suspected.

    Sometimes it has happened that new channels show some critical news critical data without any restriction. This may harm the secrecy . Everytime it is witnessed that news channels take interfering in defence operations and issues. Showing defence installations and operations to pubic may harm the security of our nation.

    the news channel should draw a line between what’s the breaking news and what’s not. spending so much time in repeating the same set of info seems redundant product of media now. To increase TRP rates channel even conducts a discussion with a panel of those who are of no use. The discussions end in abuses and fighting ,this all actually shows news channel is a sheer waste of time. rather newspaper is a good idea.

      i am completely agree with u now day the news channels which govern by political leader they only tell the achievements of government. what they had to do they also tell the public that what the government did which is against the public interest.

    According to me news channel keeps aware to public what is happening in our society and police also will be careful to do their duty and they will not be able to protect the accused person inspite of the biased by the muscles man or political leaders, innocent people they get justice but sometimes news channel cross their limit to grab the public attention.Any incident happens news channel owner send their own reporter to investigate the matter and ask the family member in case of death also actually that time they don’t want to speak. Actually several news channels are there , they have competition and want to grab public attention I e sometimes people irritated.But need channel keeps aware the public always ,we sit in our drawing room and we can get all the information what is happening all over the world but they have to maintain some limit.
