It is said that the media is the fourth pillar of democracy. Media is supposed to act as a truth bearer, they are to report true facts and inform the mass about it. It is a belief that the media's responsibility to inform the residents of the truth. They have to be unbiased, share their facts, and let the people decide what they make of that information. Every news affects every individual differently, whence the media has to be unbiased. But is it?
Indian media have shown us time and again how unreliable it is. We would rather trust western information rather than pay heed to anything shared by any Indian news media (Fake news channels). Other than that, the accent Indian media follows does reflect the fish mart of Delhi. Moreover, most of the news channels are owned by politicians themselves, now you can understand which news channel will run the news in favour of which political party. This often compels the anchors to create and sell the news, which the godfathers will ask them to.
The problem is that humans, in the end just want to make as much money as they can with what they are doing. Truth is some domains are supposed to pay more than others and some domains are just to serve a purpose, you enjoy your job, you do something interesting but your job might not pay that much and in the end, when the bills start compiling up, we care more about making money than anything, be it to fool the public by running the fake news because powerful politicians said so.
Western media report news on the basis of the stands taken by them. They report passionately and sometimes the opposite, even some have the power to question the President like the news reporters in America, but you try doing it here in India (Sshhh...).
Western media, mostly 'analyze' the events by their version, they will go nuts to get the proofs and if that is not sufficient, then there will be 'independent analysis', but here in India, the truth goes to those who will put money in the mouth. While the Western Journalists can go completely wild against their government, but in India it is a lot more controlled.

Media served a great purpose during colonial days and during the independence movement, what is it doing now though?
Our great war has been fought and won, the kick out of the career and self-righteousness has gone and now they just want to make money. They favor whosoever favors them with money, and power.
We would be wrong if we would say that this is just India, every country is the same. Yes, your precious developed countries too. The western media are the same. There will always be black sheep and somebody will be doing it correctly, but mainly the big organizations have big salaries to disburse and in the end it boils down to just making money for them.
Maybe it is because we stay here so we know better about it. When we say media, BIG news channels and online portals are the first names that come in our minds, but clearly the quality of content they deliver has drastically changed over the years. We stay here so we know, we do not stay in the west, so assume that their media is diverse and covers information ethically and gives an equal representation. Sure, the Black Lives Matter movement was covered, but it reached a peak, do you believe that nothing happened before? Or nothing will happen after? We pray that nothing happens after but the western media stayed mum as well when marginalized communities were suffering there too.
I believe that clear thinking and clear statement, accuracy, and fairness are fundamental to good journalism. I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of their responsibility, trustees for the public; that acceptance of a lesser service than the public service is betrayal of this trust. I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true. I believe that suppression of the news, for any consideration other than the welfare of society, is indefensible.
