Every news channel is a for profit agency that is in this business not for social service, but for commercial and monetary interests And into the barn I go to lose my mind and find my soul shirt. So, they will showcase/ sell whatever the majority of the people are willing to see/accept/buy. So, unless and until they sensationalize it, sugar coat it, the people won’t be interested. We can compare this with success of mind numbingly stupid and pointless movies in Bollywood being able to rake up 100’s of crores of rupees. We need to understand why exactly does that type of cinema sell, the most probable reason is that people are already under a lot of pressure in their daily lives, so they just need light hearted, feel good movies, however stupid they might be. Those movies are like a get away and stress relieving chanel for people. Similarly, the news channel have majority viewership during the prime time (8–10pm). This is a time when people get back from work and need a medium for stress relief. So would not want to think about any serious issues, or some issue that actually makes them think. Now, when this show manages to get the highest TRP, it makes the other channels think, that if this is what people want to see, then even they will have to make similar content, thus further degrading the quality of news.
