The news media's tendency to report problems and emergencies rather than positive development is harmful to individuals and society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?


The main role of media is to provide information and news to the larger audiences, making them aware of the current situation. Media is considered to be the fourth pillar of democracy along with the judiciary, executive and legislature, shaping public opinion and strengthening of the society. However, news agencies are always seen to report problems and emergencies, whether they are always construed to spread negativity? This conundrum is discussed in detail in the following essay.

In recent times, media is seen as widely reporting tensions and burning issues across the globe. The recent news about US-China trade war is widely discussed on various forums and has led to the downfall of stock market indexes of various countries leading to financial tensions. The investors invested in the companies in these countries are fearful and cautious about the next steps by the respective countries’ diplomats. Recently, India had a legislative change in relation to one of their provincial state of Kashmir. The repeat telecast and widely covering this issue by news reporters, has fuelled negative emotions across the valley of Kashmir. At times, the news anchors, based on their personal opinions spew negativity and spread hatred among the masses, which is not good.

However, responsible media is essential for any nation. These agencies are watchdogs on miscreants and spread awareness among the people reporting their misdeeds. They are, at times, the voice of the nation demanding accountability and performances from elected office bearers of the government. In case of a major natural calamity, it’s through news agencies that keep people apprised and informed about the latest information on relief and safety measures on the site of the disaster.

Based on the aforesaid discussion, it is imperative for a news agency to keep people abreast of the latest news and information. On one hand, it is the responsibility of the news agency to transmit the news meaningfully and not to instigate the masses. On the other hand, the public at large should be thinking about how to perceive this information and act in responsibly.

The main role of media is to provide information and news to the larger audiences, making them aware of the current situation. Media is considered to be the fourth pillar of democracy along with the judiciary, executive and legislature branches, shaping public opinion and strengthening of the society. However, news agencies are always seen to report problems and emergencies, whether they are always construed to spread negativity? (Ungrammatical. It is not a properly-formed question. I don't understand this.) This conundrum is discussed in detail in the following essay.

Improper thesis statement. Never mention your essay, your writing, or what you are going to tell the reader in a formal essay. Write the main point of your essay. In this case, you answer the question: To what extent do you agree or disagree? You really did not answer the essay directly. Does this negative reporting by the media do more harm than good? You did not offer an opinion on this. Your essay form was "What are the advantages and disadvantages?" That is a different essay prompt.
