Broadcast Media - goons????

Lots of things happening in India and all over the globe. The media is doing its job and reporting it faithfully. I armed myself with the nearest available remote and did a quick scan as one might put it. Here are some samples:

NDTV - We are good all other channels are bad..karatkaratkaratkaratkarat
INDIATV - Bhoot...Raju Srivastav..Arushiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Headlines Today - Biker gang in Delhi, Rape in Noida, Bluelines accident again...
Star News - Arushiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Aajtak - Black Magic..Arushi..Dhoni's female bodyguards..Live telecast of Katrina's birthday

Why are we subjected to all this?
Because TRPs govern these pathetic channels. Because they are businesses too and at the end of the day have to defend themselves in a boardroom. Because there is a growing audience for such crap!!!
Who decides this crap? Us or some private eye who goes around snooping into people's living rooms!!
I am befuddled and am sure many others are too...
