Miss Leading

In case you are wondering which nubile contestant in what paegant i am talking about, all ican say is that your line of thought is skewed, but then, that was just the idea- to illustrate a point..
The newspapers and channels have been famous for these kind of headlines for quite some time now, part of an overall theme of being one up, creating news and packaging it in such a way as to seduce, no thats not the correct word, theres another one thats being bandied about by a lot of people in the fraternity - titillate (no, it does not mean delayed development of mammary glands!!)..
Indiatimes, being an extension of the paper in a lot of ways, also uses this regularly, but i was in for a surprise when i went checking for the actress/model who was seen with the fastest Indian (which is also open for debate) following this link 'Diva with India's fastest man'..
until next time, a mere slip of a blogger

Tittilate, DAMN, man, U crack me up! N DIVA C deserves a double damn.
But seriously, these media peeps are losing it. Every second thing from someone slipping on a banana peel to a dog letting off on the wrong side of the road is 'breaking news' these days. Hell they are even becoming more 'content' oriented. Scary programs n all, where the only thing scary is the horrible grating voiceover.
But i guess it's all ok. As long as it sells the space in between the crap...
