Why people go towards sensational things more than the real issues?People these days have so little attention span that social media comes up with new methods to grab people's attention and for this activity that is sensational. Even if there is a simple thing it is presented in such eye-catching phrases and pictures that people go for it rather than actual issues.
What do you think about it?
Are you also a victim of the sensationalisation of news? and go back to these news channels or social media platform which presents sensational news?
Or you try to avoid such news and prefer newspaper or conventional form of news.
With this sensationalism another related aspect that comes at the forefront is fake news, I have seen many elderly people and my relatives who have started using WhatsApp just a few years ago and often believe such fake news and sensational news.
How do you see this aspect?
Focusing on the more sensational aspect of news has left news channels more like an entertainment channel than the news channel, which people view to gain entertainment rather than awareness.
