Worldwide role of media in highlighting and preserving Civil Society's Value System – Vinay Rai

Vinay Rai while speaking on the role of media said that, in today's world, the media is just mirror imaging the societies overt interest in violence, sex and gossip .

He said that the media needs to relook at its stated role of just reflecting the moods and needs of the civil society. It needs to seriously think where or not it is their duty as opinion makers and communicators to bring back the value system, the caring and concern and make a balance between pure commercialism and their duty towards society at large.

A lot of thought and soul searching needs to be done on whose duty it is to preserve society's value systems. Is it the preserve of only religious leaders and gurus and saints. Leading news agencies like
