The media is considered as fourth pillar of democracy. (Legislature, Executive, and Judiciary are three pillars of democracy) It makes us aware of various activities of politics, sports, economic, social etc. It is also like a mirror which shows the bare truth and sometimes it may be harsh. However it plays an important role in shaping the public minds.
It is called as backbone of democracy. So it must act as a chain between the government and the citizens of the country. Democracy cannot be successful without free Media. Free media is very essential, as it is the voice of the people. But media should not be trapped in a monetary (आर्थिक संबंध) or any other temptations (लालच), and serve honestly to the people.

Instead of working for the society, Indian media divert the attention of the people from any important issue and the failure of the government. They only work to help their masters
Amit Abraham, says, “The pen had been mightier than the sword but then the tongue took over.” Many have proved it true. The credibility ( विश्वसनीयता) of Indian media is fast eroding (decreasing) day by day. The way Indian media manipulates (तोड़ना–मरोड़ना) the news and portrays (तसवीर बनाना) the information in a twisted manner is very insulting for the nation, which we have seen in Shushant Shing’s death recently.
