The media has been helpful in mobilizing the public to raise their voice for their rights. It created awareness in the public to counter the dictatorial form of rule. One other important facility (as I would put it) media has given to the people is a stage where their voices can be heard. Agreed that some minor mistakes may exist on part of the media but thats how you develop and discover. The whole point is to discuss the decision-making processes going on in the corridors of power. Since these policies are made for the public, it is their right to know and comment on such events. Plus it also gives a chance to refine certain policies as per the will of the people.
