As media gained influence it become increasingly insensitive. Materialism has forced us into becoming money minting machines and we have become insensitive, be it a road accident, where instead of helping the injured, various spectators take ‘selfies’, or news on the channels, the situation is always handled without any compassion or sympathy. In these hard times when people are dispassionate media should play the role of a sensitive mediator and arouse compassion in the hearts of the viewers.
