There needs to be a confession. I am a wrongdoer. I tried to fight from within the system. I was wrong. This can’t be cured from within. It needs to be done by coming out of it. We have taken positive advantage of the reach of the media. That has triggered the cause and the causation. There is no doubt. But is the system alright with the media? I think not. There are good as well as bad elements in it. If one needs to propagate an idea and create a public opinion, one needs to reach out. The public has a fundamental right to know as well. Nobody can ever deny that right.
Many a times, one finds the news that comes published and propagated is distorted. The same becomes all the more worse when the news is against persons holding superior posts or statues in society. There have been publications, which have survived on schadenfreude (pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune). That may be because of the further fact that society also derives a similar kind of pleasure.
Defense lawyers have always been pleading that the media has hijacked the rights of the accused. The TV channel discussions, on many occasions, have been one-sided. Thereby, creating an impression of who the culprit is, even before the trial starts. From the channel discussions etc., there has also been a tendency that even the witnesses are inclined to believe the story that comes in the discussions, rather than deposing the event which they have either witnessed or not witnessed. Thereby, creating stories according to the delusion created by the media.
