That โ€œis not defined by technology, nor by journalists or the techniques they employ.โ€ย  The role that media serves in people’s daily lives is a more of a fundamental concept that defines the ideals and goals of reporting.

The main reason for journalism

Media coverage is anย aspect of communication which informs us about the evolving events, conflicts, and people from the outside environment. The main reason for journalism is to inform the general public, while it could also be engaging or informative.

In order for people to make the most effective choices for their lifestyles, neighborhoods, communities, and governments, journalism mustย give them the knowledge they deserve.
