TV talk shows

I am a frequent viewer of TV talk shows. Basic idea behind these shows is to educate people on certain issues. There should be an exchange of views in a polite way, but now it appears that our TV talk shows have lost their utility as well as credibility. Anchors and guests are shown screaming, with the latter resorting to even abuse at times. Sometimes, there is cross talk with no result.

I think this is a reflection of our society that has become intolerant, and we are in need of a code of conduct to regularise the whole state of the affairs. PEMRA should also intervene to save viewers from indecent language. After all our children also watch these shows at times.
