During a war, public should ignore media reports.Something to share with our members.
During a war between the countries, the public should ignore the media reports. Why I say this because the media is the culprit that changes the mindset of people and demoralize a country or favour a country knowingly or unknowingly. Secrecy is important during the war. Media should not play with defense-related issues, especially during war.
An example to quote.
During a war between countries A and B, the A country was fighting well with one of its ships at sea. The ship destroyed many ships and land targets. The A country kept the ship's movements secret, and the enemy country B could not locate the ship belonging to Country A. Country B was losing the war and lost all its hopes.
Then, the enemy country B thought of a plan and propagated that the ship from country A was destroyed and sunk. This was reported in the local Newspapers of country A. The public of country A demoralized and felt that they are going to lose the war against country B.
At this juncture, the country A published in their media that their ship is safe and sound in position so and so. Thus, Country B came to know the location of the ship and their ships reached the position and destroyed the ship, and won the battle.
Never believe the media reports, especially during the conflicts.
