To see current scenario of Government and media, i think media is very bias these days and playing very silly role. They all are indulge in Kangana, Sushant, Riya and Deepika but they are not showing real problems of India a little bit like downfall of economy, unemployment, farmers and many more. What’s you view about this??
Media plays an important role in our lives. With the help of media people get to know about the real world problems. It is a huge responsibility and it is important for media to be unbiased and show the truth behind things. We believe in what we see so media should be open about lot of other problems that our country is facing. So yes media should focus more on problems like GDP , Unemployment , farmers and many more important news.
