Role of Media

Role of media in politics-

  •  Media is showing people, several ways to kill, and rob etc. By this number of criminals is increasing day by day. In Mumbai attacks (26/11), media caused increase of the problem. Terrorists were able to see what’s happening there, and threw grenades at the commandos. Most of the times media’s allegations are not true. This puts lives of many people and their career at stake.

Role of media in technology

  • Media is the communication from the country to country. Through media we get aware about on which latest technology, other countries are working.

It’s true that we can’t live without media. Media has freedom of speech.

Misuse of constitutional right of “Freedom of Speech” when provocative statements are made on air. Media has so great a power as to mobs into riots and self-destructive.

    Media is the biggest source from where we get information of every field. It keeps us up-to-date regarding every current affair. It helps in increasing not only our general knowledge but also teaches us to learn and manage things in our lives. It is used to connect public. Media is the major source of any country’s development. Media has become ethical but it should become more ethical to make our country leading among various countries. It is a mixed blessing because due to media only we can get knowledge sitting at our respective homes. Although it has some cons that some news channels or media people shows bogus information which sometimes become harmful for public, so it should be avoided.

    Yes… “Media has freedom of speech”. In my opinion the prime duty of the reporter is that in their news they will first see the interest of the country and society, not their personal interest. So media should provides the correct news to the public because in all over the country people faith media with blind eyes.

    Yes I think media is a mixed blessing . As it has both the aspect of negative and positive side.

    For example: positive aspect includes – The common man gets the latest news within a fraction of seconds. The distance is not at all a barrier now. The news they get through media help them in their daily life a lot.
    And the negative aspect includes – Some bogus news given in the newspaper may raise blood pressure and create negative feelings in the mind.

      ya agree with but not totally . Media never gives judgmental statements about any person . It always shows relevant information about the matter . How we are taking it depends only on our self.

  16. Pallavi sinha says:

    Media plays a vital role our society and is a part of our life. Media is a bridge between the governing bodies and general public. It is a powerful and flexible tool that influences the public to a great extent. Media is voice of the voiceless and a great force in building the nation
    In the past when the media was not so strong we were quite ignorant about what is happening around us, today we come to know very quickly what is happening around us. We have the access to all the international news channels that provide us the facts and figures. Considering this fact that media has the power to influence society, it should know its responsibility towards society. It should feel its responsibility to educate the society in a positive way and giving us fair analysis and factual information.

  17. Harshita Parlani says:

    I totally agree,Media is actually a mixed blessing. Its positive use will be fruitful and its negative use will always be disastrous. Hence, youth must think before using any means of media.
