Role of media in democracyMedia being the fourth pillor in democracy plays a very important role in keeping us aware of various social, political and economical activities taking place in the country and the world.
It is the media that reminds politicians about their unfulfilled promises and also reminds them to work for the people.
The media also reminds governments about loopholes in the dispensation, which eventually helps in making accountable, responsive and masses-friendly system.
A plethora of sensitive news leaves negative impact and shapes the mindset of the people accordingly. Here media has to understand its onus rather seriously.
Serious allegations are being made against media that it has compromised and forgotten its moral onus. You can't watch some of their advertisement with your family. It's said that Commercialization has changed motive of the media that it is running after TRP only.
