News Anchors Sell Juice During Bulletin
A video of two Abb Tak TV anchors sipping Nestle juice in the newsroom during the live telecast of the news bulletin has gone viral on social media.
The newscasters further go on to announce a promotional offer that the juice company has announced due to the increased usage of the internet during the times of social distancing and spending most of our time in quarantine. The new marketing stint by the company has been facing criticism all over the internet while people have been fuming that marketing has infiltrated journalism to this extent that even a news bulletin is not free of paid publicity and product placement.
Is this for real? Or someone's idea of a stupid joke? Well, ok I never saw news anchors as genuine journalists but selling juice during a news bulletin?!! This is insane!!! #news #anchors #journalism #JournalismIsDead #marketing #juice #Advertising #Pakistan pic.twitter.com/9eESpm13im
