Qualifications for today's TV journalist!

I watch some of the popular news channels in India and conclude that the follwoing are some of the qualifications they look for in a journalist:
  • Should have good expressions and a flair for presenting information with a dramatic flourish
  • Absolute lack of sensitivity towards other's sentiments
  • Should be a great snooper with an innate capability to come to blind conclusions
  • Possess a vivid imagination
  • an inherent ability to speculate and present before the audience a long list of possibilities in all circumstances
  • The skill to forget logic
  • An absolute disrespect for ethics, rules and anything to do with decency
  • Be a good marketer who can sell news stories to the audience shamelessly
  • Shun the truth and sell the sensational
