Hitting the media where it hurts
Most newspapers (but not us) are starting to cater more and more to market demands so that they stay relevant in a changing media market. This, sadly, has led to news of a more frivolous nature often finding its way into pages. Now, funny group East India Comedy has called out this trend with a meme captioned, ironically, “Indian media has got its priorities right.” Ironic, because the meme is of a newspaper page in which the leading article is headlined, “Tamur yawned for 6 seconds”, while some of the other headlines are “Virat and Anoushka did not post a couple goals picture this week” and “I am leaving for Mars to find Achhe Din: Narendra Modi”. Ouch.
