http://www.rediff.com/news/2008/jun/28show.htm Thats where the article is. The news and media have been portraying it as though the girl got paralysed after being scolded by a judge in a TV show! The truth is she has a disease - either a viral infection of her brain or a nerve disease affecting her brain. This is in no way related to the reality show. Its rather sd that the media (as usual) are spicing it up and saying - GIRL PARALYSED BECAUSE OF REALITY TV SHOW! This is not the truth at all. I wish the media and TV would use the right opportunities to show issues - not just misinterpret and misinform the public about such issues. This incident took place in India.

Absolutely! The article says the Psychiatrist couldn't diagnose what happened to the girl. Media should be ashamed of monetizing such issues in this way.
