Journalists used to be face of media
Magazines and newspapers used to be manifestation of their destiny
They could make or break person image for a while
They used to represent intellect breed
They used to be self-contained
Used to write more for ideology than for money
They were well respected pillar of society.
Then age of 24/7 TV news arrived
Journalists thrived the way they deliver contents written by others
Looks and voice become more valuable than substance of thoughts
Anchor journalists become celebrity
Money and liquors floated from every where
No one was averse to booze and bribes
Even filtration with babes become acceptable to most
They become messiah of “me-too” brigade
TV ratings become barometer of success
Brokers of power and journalists become part of same cahoots.
But TV remote has made the common people smart
They can compare what is going around
Internet has empowered them to expose designer reporters
People can express what they feel right
Power brokers in India has become redundant
Tea seller is now establish PM
Established leaders in US are spineless now
Outsider businessman has become President.
Presstitude power is shrinking fast
Social Media is King of cyber era
Specialized bloggers are new age editors
People cyber interaction is powerful weapon.
Indo-US leaders at the top, shown place to syndicated media.
New age media is people to people
New age social media is mirror to presstitude power broker.
Hope to see old editor brigade in new social media format.
