You have raised a good question, about the media and its role in today's time.
As we know that a coin has two faces, similarly the role of media has both aspects, positive as well as negative.
Though the media in playing a very significant role in present time, that because its a very faster and practical way to spread the communication in the mass of population.
If we talk about positive things- we can say that it is a great source of knowledge as well as any information regarding all the happenings and fields like, any incident happened or any upcoming policy or rules from the government or any body, from all sections of the economy whether its finance, Bollywood, defence, IT, etc.
But it has negative aspect of view too, as it offers/publish/broadcast some programmes and contents that is not suitable for all the people in the country. Even now a days, in the name of reality shows, they harm our culture upto a certain level.
As on overall opinion I will be in favour of media, as its a boon for our society.
Do well, get well, be well.
Thanks and Regards.
