Role of Media in our Society

Have you ever wondered why the media chose to report on BJP President Gadkari’s health and not the mystery behind Sonia Gandhi? It is strange that after an initial mention of the same, the news just disappeared from the media channels never to be reported thereafter.

I wonder whether media has all been sold out and what motivates them at the end of the day is the TRP apart from the political and corporate influence which the media seems to be surrounded with at all times.

The coverage of things like a kid falling in a pit hole seems to be occupying most of the time of certain news channels, especially the Hindi News Channels, which have such a large viewer base.

Sometimes, I wonder whether media, which is supposed to be acting as the fourth arm of our constitution, will ever be able to fulfill its role meaningfully, or whether it will ever be caught in the number game.
