Abstract


Good governance has been a key concept for democratic development in many countries around the world during the past few decades and media is playing very important role for the development of good governance. Media forms an integral part of the lives of all. In present time media is becoming an important medium to report and interpret political events and issues, and how media itself influences the political processes and shapes public opinion. It depends broadly on media that it can shape power and participation in society in negative ways, by obscuring the motives and interests behind political decisions or in positive ways by promoting the involvement of people in those decisions. It is duty of the media that they should bring to the arena of public life is knowledge of the rules how the public has decided a democracy should work and the ability and willingness to provide relevant information and a place for that information to be discussed and turned into democratic consent. They must exhibit no partisan interest in the specific outcome other than it is arrived at under the democratic process.
