Re: [prpoint] News Hour or Noise Hour?

 

Dear All,

IMHO, on this subject, we need to note that "Times Now" has been
registering [maximum] a large number of exposes in a very wide range of
political endeavors.

It is unfortunate but true that oflate "washing dirty linen in public' is
a acceptable practice.

It may not be wise to have a standard / sober format for News Hour at all
times.

Personal tastes are different...but can there be a "conclusion oriented"
method in discussing "a long sequence of Exposes" in public ?

Your thoughts..
