U.R.Ananthamurthy on falling media standards in Karnataka

Dr.Ananthamurthy hits the nail on the head in above paragraph. All this sleazy journalism initially won’t attact common reasonable people. But when you are bombarded with cheap articles and programmes even those who are not interested in sleaze start reading / viewing them occasionally or to pass time. Then it becomes a dangerous addiction which can lead to anti-social acts or crimes.

Very apt observation – considering recent events in Bangalore where Balakrishna Kakathkar of Udaya TV “Crime Story” who relished in showing blood and gore and survived on blackmailing people in his TV programme is now accused of pushing his wife and kin towards death. Click here to read our earlier post exposing Balakrishna Kakatkar’s dangerous drinking and criminal habits. On top of that these deaths are being pushed under the rug by police and media who have brushed it under the rug of “suicide”

    Good doctor has certainly matured or is this sign of aging? How can one forget Ananthamurthy of Lankesh days – the antiestablishment fever, mud slinging, character assasination all done under “intellectual” discussion. Ah the not so good old days!
