There are several current affairs programmes on television.

Definitely YES.

I am almost at the stage of not watching the above programme and 60 minutes because of this.

I wonder just how much is fiction, or just bending the truth to make the stories more interesting.

Some of them are so bizarre, that I think they must be slightly exaggerated to say the least.

After watching a few I tend to stop watching.

Absolutely!
Why? do that do they think we are stupid, and can not tell the difference.
I just don't watch now....Full Stop.
Yes, very much so! I choose not to watch for that reason.
I have not watched a commercial 'current affairs' programme for about 20 yrs, and having worked in such a place (in the day when they had assistants) the adrenalin count on the producers,presenters,, camera operators goes higher the 'bigger' the story goes (substace fact goes out the door). (there were exceptions)
The only commercial programme I watch is Judge Deed, who is addicted to current affairs of a different type.!!!
SBS, some ABC, and some NITV gives me the perspective I want, but then I guess we're all different.

I do not bother with Current Affairs programs as a rule as I find them to be the worst Media Circus of them all!!! I may look like I may be stupid,but I assure you that there is a fully functional brain inside this head of mine,and I also have a lot of what is known as Common Sense!! I like to think that I use both every day!
Yes of course - unfortunately, if there were not then the general public would probably not watch them

I suspect that ALL current affairs programmes are sensationalised. We see snippets on the ads of the key words, images etc ..... and it is not until the real show appears, that we get a better view of the story
Yes I definitely do.....and they often don't give both sides of the story....'a balanced approach; This annoys me greatly...a lit of fiction is involved I believe.
