Media helps in fighting against corruption, nepotism, cronyism of institutional machinery and carrying out relentless campaign against them.

In any case, Jews are news, and when the news seems bad, Jews are blamed—everywhere and always—from the Black Plague to crises in the global economy & international terrorism.
It would be best for us to unify, it would be best for the world to support that unification directly rather than clubbing us as helping the goose to lay golden eggs is a smarter policy than killing it. Smashing a loose, flickering bulb will not just black-out the bulb, but the whole room. This is why anti-Semitism is known as “the Socialism of Fools.” It starts with the Jews, but never ends there.
Are we Jews really responsible though, or just wronged? By Jewish Law we are responsible. If one just passes an uncovered pit in the public thoroughfare that the person didn’t dig, the person is not responsible for any damage to say, an ox that stumbles into it. However, if one decides to be noble and board up the pit—but subsequently decides to take the boards back, then that person is now liable for future damage. The boards are our ancient, national commitment to be a role model of mutually responsible unity.
Recently much exposure has been given in the media about anti Semitism in the Labour Party. These accusations seem to have been fomented after a remark from Ken Livingston. Livingston claimed that the Nazi party made a treaty with the Zionist party. For this comment Livingston was instantly demonised as anti Semite! Yet Livingston was simply stating a fact. The haavara agreement was signed in 1933 to facilitate movement of Jews from Germany to Palestine. I only researched this historically interesting item after becoming puzzled by the rather anxious attempts by the media to prove that religious intolerance is an integral part of socialist philosophy. Surely The Jewish Chronicle would have been aware of this treaty ,yet there does not seem to have been any attempt from Jewish sources to verify the accuracy of Livingston`s remark. Has he been censored for simply speaking the truth?
Media of today is playing an outstanding role in creating and shaping of public opinion and strengthening of society.
Media is the sword arm of democracy.
The media affects society in many different ways; such as, businesses use the media to promote their products, the media effects communication, and the media affects body image and behavior of people in society....
Today when politicians are taking full advantage of their positions, an evil nexus of mafia and crime syndicate is making the life of the common man miserable, taxpayer’s money is siphoned out for the personal gain of the influential and ordinary people are a mere spectator-media has a grater responsibility As the fourth pillar of democracy along with judiciary, executive and legislature, media of today has an all embracing role to act against the injustice, oppression, misdeeds and partiality of our society.
From the days abode, media has remained an integral part of human civilization.
From the days of Vedas and Upanishads to edicts of kings and emperors like Chandragupta, Asoka to the medieval Indian mass gatherings to the modern day’s audio video and print media, media has always taken a pivotal role in shaping our society.

No one but the Jews is expected to be a role-model society. The light that the Jews are obliged to bring to the nations is the light of a united society, where mutual responsibility and friendship prevail, where “love your neighbor as yourself” is the motto, the foundation, and the goal that individuals in the society aspire to achieve.
Because the Jews have a mission to carry out, author Michael Grant, wrote about them: “The Jews proved not only unassimilated, but inassimilable.” However unclear the way may be, the only solution to anti-Semitism is for the Jews to bring the light of unity to the world by establishing a role model society, and sharing its principles with the world. They will not be able to avoid this mission by assimilating.
It has been two millennia since the ruin of the society that Ford looked up to. Unlike Abraham’s time, or Moses’ time, the world is ready to hear why things are not working out. The Jews must introduce once more the method for uniting above differences. Indeed, the key is the word, “above.” The Jews did not suppress their differences, but used them to the benefit of the whole of society. Today the Jews must teach themselves once more how to conduct themselves this way, and thereby become a role model society.
