THE IMPACT of ’trust destruction’ by the economic powers will be felt for many years and it will affect countries everywhere. When it hits the government bodies and authorities, it has its effect on world economy because of which we are facing a global crisis.

And when it comes to the media because of dishonesty and ‘trust violation’, the global society will face the destruction of one more vital system of our society. The right to information, is the right on which the social structure depends and when it gets corrupt then the concept of ‘Right of Information’ too suffers a major setback. This is a worldwide problem and we must know our social responsibility to overcome the crisis.

In India, the newspapers mean a lot and when we find that what we are reading is manipulated by a so-called editor, who is tied up with a businessman with the hand of a local political personality controlling the information, our trust in this system gets shattered.

As the quality of news suffers, it has its impact on the whole society and system. In short, ’trust destruction’ triggers a major crisis.

The bitter truth about the local newspaper and the misuse of print media, is huge disappointment for an eager reader. In the name of journalism, these professionals indulge in misguiding youths, as the youth are only familiar with the glamour of the media, knowing nothing about the ethics and functioning of the media houses.

And the society provides active workers, to work for the so-called media houses. These youngsters start working with famed newspapers and periodicals but are unaware of the source of money. Those who are in the business of print media they can well imagine how much capital is required for bringing out so many publications regularly.
