Does media aware or scare us?

"The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent. And that's the power because they control the minds of the masses."By Malcolm X

The nation can function on the belief of national integrity among States persons and citizens. This change seems to be smooth, only superficially because it is bonded with the "agency of media". I won't claim that media makes this channel strenuous but it sometimes develop obscurity in the link of state and public.

It was the time when channels like 'Doordarshan' worked to give authentic information and daily updates to aware the public whereas today's business oriented news channels  act  only as a source of entertainment for naive public. What we can all see on these channels are  debates, hot discussions and public forums ,where there so called experts are just throwing their opinions on each others and sometimes, even without any valid justification. Can they help us to form any opinion or aware us with ongoing situations?

I believe that the act of providing information is crucial and must be handled with sincerity. And there are reporters and journalist who actually stream our thoughts and present a  crystal clear image of true situations. Such informative communication can be maintained with firmness only if the audience reciprocate with meaningful deliberations and sensible criticism.

The ethical standards of the media must also be set as priority because they show not only the concrete decisions of government but also the acute and critical conditions of poverty, disasters and even communal conflicts. The photograph shown above was taken by a famous journalist who tried to show the severe conditions of Sudanians post civil war and major floods. He took the picture of starving girl lying on the ground and vulture eyeing  on her ,waiting for her death. He was criticize for or not giving any medical assistance to that girl and just doing his professional work. Do you know his name? let the Google do this for you.

It is important to get right information but it is more important to form opinion unaffected from erroneous knowledge. So you must rethink and try to gather information without being distracted from the 'brag' of media of informations.
Happy Quarantine
