Coming to newspapers these days many newspapers are there. Many of them will have the affiliation of one or the other political parties and they highlight the news belonging to that party. They never write correct news and they write all negative news only about the other parties. Such papers are not good. In Telugu there are two newspapers, one is Namaste Telangana which is the TRS paper and Skashi is the paper of YSRCongree. These two papers will always highlight the news of their party leaders only and try to popularise rumours about opposition parties or ruling party as the case may be. In Telugu, Eenadu is a reliable newspaper and in English, I prefer The Hindu for news.
So same is the case here. News being served is something which is appealing to most of the audiences. If those were the "nonsense arguments" then there wouldn't have so much breaks having commercial ads.
I object to this language as these might not be of your interest but for sure others will enjoy.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Nowadays, the news channels broadcast programs 24/7. Since such channels are news channels i.e. the channels dedicated for broadcasting news only, they have devised related formats like group discussions etc. by inviting subject experts and official spokespersons of political parties.
Like newspapers, the television channels are also owned by individuals having a certain political ideology. Therefore, there is nothing surprising if different channels broadcast the same news with certain twists to make them conform to their own leanings and ideologies.
Watching television or reading newspapers is not mandatory. It is up to the individual concerned to choose the media to be interacted with or not watch/ read all. Since, all of them are commercial ventures, they are not likely to yield to an individual's choice and preference.

But nice to read a various response from members. Still awaiting other members for their review
No life without Sun
If you remember the good old days of English/Hindi news with Gitanjali Iyer, P.Roy etc, they were dignified, graced the screen with their quality delivery. At the same time, the reports were accurate.
Sadly, today it's become flashy, gaudy with multiple flash news and loud anchors repeating the same breaking news like a parrot without any charm or appeal. The news also becomes a hot item for a few hours before the other get it.
Some newspapers still have maintained the content quality. Barring the full page ads (a necessity to survive) a newspaper would appeal to most of us from the DD era.
I think the present TV media would fall in there ratings and popularity leading to a merger or closing down of the smaller networks leaving a few good ones. Then we would have a chance of the TV news becoming better than the paper news.
The only advantage of the breaking news in being aware quickly of a natural disaster, a calamity, a riot or an untoward event that may affect us or people known to us.
The greatest wealth in this world is mental peace and good health.
