"Con" Banega Crorepati ?

India TV has alleged that underhand dealings have taken place to choose participants for the famous TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati.The show is currently off air citing ill health of Big B which has further fueled speculation of wrongdoings.
As with every other popular event/show or celebrity in India KBC too has come under the harsh glare of the media.Sensational journalism rules the roost when it comes to TRP ratings.News channels have started manufacturing news rather than reporting it.TV viewers are made to sit through hours and hours of footage and discussions on Amitabh's health or on Ganguly's inclusion/exclusion.Add sting operations to it and you get to see hazy images of our MPs or movie stars cavorting in bed or accepting bribes with the same religious fervor that they accept "prasad" in temples.
KBC might have been conning people but the real cons of this "media" age are the news channels .The answer my dear friends for the million dollar question - "Kaun Banega Crorepati?" is simple - "Its all in the news"

People can go to any lengths to defend their careers and jobs as witnessed by the latest irrelevant airport authority strike. It is well known that some elements in the media can go to any lengths for TRPs. From what you have written, both the media and KBC have shown that its not easy being Crorepati the right way.
