4 Reasons why the political debate on TV is a waste of time
We all watch television, and for some years it will be there for sure though we are seeing the rise of web series and other online video platforms still for next two decades it will be present. It’s not unknown that the monopoly attitude of media forced us to watch whatever they want to show us but thanks to the rise of the internet and social media where we don’t even care what they are producing. However, they don’t change their attitude yet, and most of the time are producing biased content or in support of a particular political party or ideology, and sadly, there is a large pool of audience is still believing them. The matter is worst when we are watching the political debate in a country like India where people are accusing each other on the live debate without doing anything at the ground level. Here we are going to mention some reasons why the news debate on TV is a waste of time.
They don’t do anything apart from the argument
The objective of a TV debate is discussing the ongoing issues that create the problems whereas instead of talking on the point the guests always blame each other means the opposition parties even though their rivals may not be in the power. Same happens with opponents, and they also continue their blame against the ruling party and hide their failures. The place becomes a place of heated debate only without any conclusion.
It’s only for their TRP
Entire television industry depends on TRP, and that comes when more people watch it, and this happens if the debate becomes more interesting. In fact, it’s the news channel who make it more complicated though sometimes they bring the real issues however it is too rare. Now a day it becomes so low that guests are fighting with each other and even some are attacking others physically. Whatever happens there just for the sake of TRP that helps the company to generate more revenue and even free publicity for any bad incident.
There is no solution
Do you ever find any solution from a TV debate regarding the problem they are discussing? You never and in fact, this won’t happen in the future also. They invite guests and start their argument, and even force their ideology or political party propaganda on them and then it becomes a ground of battle.
The louder you are popular your channel
Though no can match Arnab Goswami when it comes to shouting still, other channels are not behind though they are yet to compete with him however still you can enjoy others’ shows when his program is not telecasting on the TV. Here if the host is speaking loudly that means something serious just like they wanted to know the reaction of wink girl Priya Prakash Varrier, after seeing Rahul Gandhi’s wink at the Parliament and even they ran a show of more than an hour on this. Also previously we saw important discussion like GPS in the newly launched 500 and 2000 notes during demonetization, and not to mention that cow takes and leaves oxygen only. So much thing we can learn once accidentally switch on the tv, except the solution of the problem they are discussing and fighting with each other.
The TV news channels tend to forget that it’s not the era of 2012-13 when people became angry due to the miss rule of Congress and relied on the TV debates to know important news and the opinion of opposition political parties. People become smarter now a day and get to know that these TV debates are nothing but just a bunch of people arguing like we are doing on the daily life without finding any solution. In fact, instead of wasting time on this they are using their time on YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime and other entertainment platforms. Unless these argument shows provide some viable solution, there is no future of these debates for sure, and it would be better if they shut down such craps, and make some quality content like their competitors in the virtual world.
