‘Democracy’ a system of governance by the people , to the people and for the people . Whenever there is a talk about freedom and democracy a country name ‘ Bharat ‘ comes in everyone’s mind , which has a vast written constitution and largest democracy in the world . Democracy is stand on basically three pillars – Legislative , Executive and Judiciary. But as it is known that there is a fourth pillar – Media . Media is for providing informations with facts what is happening around us and to inform how other three pillars of democracy are working.
Here , we are talking about Bhartiya Media , if you look at news anchors they behave like psycho . They call some people who are funny enough to entertain public . Have you ever thought they have degree of journalism from renowned Universities then why are they doing so ? Actually there are many serious issues you must have to look. Suppose you have to select a product and the ratings and reviews are of the company which makes that product, can you get an unbiased review?
The same happens in our system . When you have to vote for a party or a candidate in an election . Today a candidate need not to come in public to tell what he or his party did in past five years tenure he acquires media for this . And if media will be biased then from where will you get a right information? If you notice Bhartiya Media it is only of two types , first one is acquired by ruling party and second one is acquired by opposition.
There is only one question if there is everything is right with Bhartiya Media then why it lies 142nd in the table of world press freedom index published by RSF. There are six parameters of this report- pluralism , media independence, media environment and self – censorship, legislative framework , transparency and quality of infrastructure. Do you find any parameters that is not supportive in country like Bharat? Kashmir reporting may be reason but not only reason .Then what is the reason for this ? Watchdog report says , India ‘ no longer a free country ‘. India’s rank fell from 83 to 88 out of 211 counties list.
Is it fair to run weddings planning and love affairs of celebrities in news channels and no attention to massive unemployment , hunger and poverty of country ? In fact, 47 percent children are malnourished , 3 lakhs farmers suicide . Bharat is youngest population country and according to CMIE data only 37% youths are employed between age group of 20-24 and this will lead to dangerous consequences. In this country a student spend his 4 years B.tech and then apply for Group D exams , do you find any requirement of B.tech knowledge in Group D posts ? If you are thinking that he might be poor in study then tell tell me how he get graduation degree from renowned college, disgusting. Nowadays 90 percent in marksheet is common in Board exams but what will he do after this no one knows. Vacancies for government services are decreasing gradually , some of them get canceled after years .
There was a time when social media spread rumors and mainstream media clear it and now things are reversed , mainstream media spread rumors like aliens , worldwar III , Hindu Muslims etc. If you notice debates ( not discussion) in news channels some particular jokers ( scholars in opinion of news anchors) who have no sense of humor not even a proper way to represent themselves , they only talk about some specific topics.
” Democrats don’t matter, the real opposition is media. And the way to deal with them is to flood the zone with shit. ” — Steve Bannon
I feel regret to say that our media is no more fourth pillar of democracy and and gradually becoming a entertainment center having not a proper knowledge of anything. “Whoever controls the media, controls the mind ” –Jim Morrison.
