Times Now creates stupid hashtag #ShamedInSydney, social media slaps it by trending #ShameOnTimesNow

Times Now hit a new low of journalism after India lost to Australia today. While social media was getting flooded with Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli jokes, the yellow journalism focused popcorn media house tried to spice the event with contemptuous hashtag (#ShamedInSydney) and ridiculously insane headlines.

It was not a fault of Times Now, they were just relying on their incompetent gossip-driven-sensationalistic people who create such masala headlines after Indian tours as sports journalists. Even a school kid would laugh if Semis are called First Real Test, but the ludicrous team took no time in calling it a humiliating flop show. Not only that, it also created Bollywood style narratives to target Virat Kohli by quoting pressure equilibrium reactions.

Interestingly, unlike other occasions, Times Now not only failed to create any sensation around this ridiculous hashtag, but they also faced sharp rebuttal from the social media. Social Media was quick to discard the #ShamedInSydney hashtag to #ShameOnTimesNow.

 

 

Yesterday, I wrote a piece on my unexplained melancholy after the South Africa loss, but today I was shocked by the extreme stupidity of Times Now. Times Now has not only pulled down standards of journalism, but they have also replicated what Pakistan journos and anchors (Shoaib Akhtar) have been doing.  It was not a jingoistic outrage, but an expected logical agitation against a media house which was defaming efforts and sentiments of many people to raise the TRP.
