Even this challenging situation would ease
But I have seen no change in the TV channels. The advertisements are coming there as usual. When they started Ramayan serial, first one or two days there were no advertisements but from the third day onwards advertisements started.
Many people stopped purchasing newspapers also with doubt that COVD may spread through newspapers also. I don't know how far it is true. I continued purchasing and I never stopped.
You've raised the question why newspapers are becoming thin. Purpose of buying newspaper is to know the news but when you've internet you can visit any news channel or e-newspaper for knowing the latest news when the same news will be published in the newspaper the next day you'd not take any interest in reading the same news. This is why Subscription of newspapers is going down which is affecting advertisements also. Several newspaper publishing houses have been closed or some are keeping themselves alive on lowest level of income.
Even when they were getting enough and more advertising revenue also the newspapers (at least in our place) were charging more than any other place. They do not give even a small compliment of a pocket calendar also. Each newspaper house comes with their Calendar at a price.
They are biased also. Many times I have the feeling to discontinue the two newspapers I buy.
