There is no doubt that Media is the watchdog of democracy. Political leaders weild enormous power but at the end of the day they need to articulate their views and opinions. However, at the same time it is incumbent upon media to refrain from indulging in sensationalism or making a mountain of a molehill. Nonetheless, I would still say that media has the right to play its part in strengthening democracy and exposing deeds of corrupt leaders. KIRAN ASHRAF, Karachi, October 13.
