Listening the news in bits and pieces what I could make out was that this Incheon is some city somewhere in some Asian country where the Asian games of 2014 is being held. Because, the news was about the Asian games and not about Incheon.
But for me, things are totally different. I have stopped viewing this TV news channels of my country, especially those who boast as the national level players who convey the news in Hinglish (a mixture of Hindi mixed up with Indian English). But yet they come to be noticed now and then when I browse the hundreds of channels for some thing worth viewing, only to waste my available time. In that process, perhaps I do give an enhancement of viewership to all the channels!
Had there been a choice, I would have selected a news channel which gave the real news honestly without those biscuit and napkin ads. Yes, I know that these ads are their bread and wine and devoid of those they would not live for long. But yet, I would have preferred paying for viewing them rather than getting those ridiculous ad filled news! If some of the movie channels could be paid and ad free, why can't they?
And when that is the case, these news room boys and girls could have told us where this Incheon is! Perhaps they could have enlightened our general knowledge a bit more by telling us more about that city and the country too while giving us the news about the games and the medal tallies!
Initially I was thinking that I would be the only fool who did not know about Incheon. But to my great relief I found that a good majority are like me. Ignorant. They too did not get much from viewing the news channels and reading the print media.
So, what about you, my friend? Did you know where is this Incheon?
If you did not, just click these hyper linked key words - Incheon and Asian Games 2014- to know more!
Now you know that Incheon is in South Korea and its full name is Incheon Metropolitan Area and it is the host city of the 17th Asiad also now called the Incheon Asian Games. It is near Seol the Capital city of S.Korea and one of the fast growing modern city. The newly constructed Incheon Bridge and its International Airport are engineering master pieces!
But still it would have been much better if these news media fellows gave these back ground info too with their rhetoric of breaking news!
To tell you the truth, I have now started liking the Door Darshan News (DD News)- the Indian TV legacy owned by the government. It has improved much after the new government took over. Besides, it has much lower time wasting with boring ads!
Would you mind sharing your frank opinions?
