Newsbite of the day


There are more news channels (81 and counting) [in India] than general entertainment channels.

From Churumuri's summary of the Indian Express story on India's couch affair with TV.

What makes that newsbite intriguing is another related comparison:

News and current affairs channels has 7.5% viewership share; GECs have 51%.

    In a way, it makes sense to watch GECs over news and current affairs channels as more often than not what they report is close to fiction.
