Media the… “i(con)” and the…Tycoon !!

11 Mar






Pillars of Democracy :


Legislature, Executive, Judiciary…… and….later on we added the fourth pillar – Media.


The idea was, if the the three pillars  develop or indulge in malpractices, the fourth should be there to correct.

Has the Media been successful in that role ?

“Well………. let me think………..” !!

BUT….BUT….. the answer should have been a straight and spontaneous “Yes”  !!



Yours truly,

‘religiously’ religion-less and ‘religion-less-ly’ religious !!

    It should have been a resounding yes.. but sadly it’s not .. as media is itself biased

    I’m always asking, does the left control the media, or does the media control the left? No longer is there objectivity, only opinion.

      Very rightly said.

      Lack of objectivity and opinionated Media. Add TRP to it and we have a complete recipe for disaster.

      More of Freedom of “suppression” than “expression” !!

    Each of the pillars you refer to, are made of what? Human beings. Corruptible, biased, subjective, thinking, emotional, etc. etc. human beings. While we desire to create institutions that keep working flawlessly forever, I don’t think there is any evidence to justify this belief. Each of us needs to stay sharp and ensure, in our little ways, that the world around us is moving in the right direction. Some of us may also be parts of these pillars.

    Here in Canada we have right wing media, left wing media, and some that fall in between. It’s up to each individual to muddle through it all and somehow arrive at the truth. But isn’t that what life is all about??

    Sadly media is not as credible a source.
