Today television channels and newspapers are making fast money by cashing on the news in wrong sense and wrong way. In the race to become more popular and to make money they have broken all the limits media must follow while serving to build a healthy and progressive society. They have no respect for the sentiments and ethics of the people and land whom they serve to, with their immense power to influence the massses they just make judgment like a true dictator rather than a good advice of a true friend as they previously used to do. If it will be going in the future then we people have to think about the role of media in our life. The media plays a very important role as a source of information,education and entertainment.It accommodates the world in to a single village which is saturated of media-information. Abhilasha 21-Apr-2007 Media plays an important role. Its a mirror of the society. It's duty is to inform, educate and entertain the people but nowadays we see that media is not doing its duty honestly. Instead of giving important information and educative programme it is giving emphasis to sensationalize the public. They are only trying to attract people to increase their TRP rating. They raise the matter for 2 or 3 days then they forget that and never try to get the feedback of the cases. Peeyush Malhotra 23-Apr-2007 Media has a constructive role to play for the society. Today News Channels and even some Newspapers are mouthpiece of some political parties. Their work then limits only to spread the ideology of the party rather than giving the correct news. People have to judge on their own by looking different channels for the same news and then form a conclusion. Anyways, Media Ji tusi great ho! Chhavi 25-Apr-2007 I seriously think that media is an integral part of our society but that's also a fact that it's too much intervention in everything is a matter of concern. sometimes, just for making money an insignificant news is given so much priority that the real news is not even brought into the notice Yes, it does also entertain but again its a debatable issue because by 'entertainment' we mean healthy entertainment and not that non sense tv serials.. So at last like science it is a tool which we have to use by our judgement to provide maximum satisfaction side by side without harming ourselves. Thank you. Tanvi 27-Apr-2007 In my view, media is the watch dog of the political democracy. If it plays its role honestly it will be a greatforce in building the nation but now a days due to great commercialisation it is not performing its role properly which is not healthy for society. Shafiq Hahsmi 30-Apr-2007 It's duty is to inform, educate and entertain the people but nowadays we see that media is not doing its duty honestly. Instead of giving important information and educative programme it is giving emphasis to sensationalize the public. shonisani lemonyucjes 6-May-2007 The media are so much part of us that to recognize their impact, we must step back and consciously think about how they shape our lives and what they are saying. The media affects people perspective not only through television, but also through radio and newspaper. In this way, even many messages with which we cannot agree, inevitably coming to us from a diverse constellation of media, will not hurt us. They can even be turned to our benefit by whetting our understanding and articulation of what we believe.The media plays on peoples fears. Deepti Evani 8-May-2007 Media plays an important role in the society. They help us to know current affairs on the spot. They put their lives in danger during a terrorist attack or a natural disaster, just to inform us about it. It is partly because of them that there is awareness spreading in the society. This is how, many countries are able to contribute to the affected areas. Who are the people who tell us about corruption? Who are the people who tell us about the crimes? It is the media who tells us. It is the...
