Counter View :)

I got an email from editor of a newspaper "Abhishek, Can you send me counter view on this decision of government by tomorrow evening."  I am glad that counter view was also  my view and given an option I would have opted for counter view only but.. the way I got that email ! How can my opinion be decided by someone else ? !
Unfortunately that's what media has become... presenting skill rather than content :(
Reality !

Editors ask for stories to be presented in a particular format, they suggest questions to be asked in an interview.. and.. sometimes they leave no space for creativity ! I am glad I am not in that profession.
