Unwanted hype: Is it specific to only Tamil Nadu?When Rajnikanth goes to Tuticorin the entire press follows him. Videos are immediately released on You tube. When he blabbers something, people tear him to pieces within sixty minutes. His fans retaliate.
Other actors jump into the fray, and a huge hype is created. This extends to a big discussion on whether his new movie, "Kaala" will succeed in the box office.
Hype, sensationalism and what have you. Breaking news. And endless, often purposeless debates, on many private TV channels, with high decibel challenges between participants. The list goes on...
Is this only specific to Tamil Nadu. Since I do not understand the language, I do not get to see other TV channels. Hindi, I do understand, but don't find time to see any channel.
What is going on in other places? Is this hype, this sensationalism and this stupidity of TV debates, only specific to Tamil Nadu?
What can be done to check all this nonsense?
