"Yonder sits the Fourth Estate, and they are more important than them all", said Edmund Burke after French Revolution. The press has been reduced to either money making machines by huge corporates or as a means of political campaigns by powerful people having clouts in the press.

Also the level of journalism has gone down with not-so-serious journalists taking it up as just another job. However, the press is one of the most powerful 'estates' in the democracy, rather the only one too.

It is the duty of the journalists to keep the news and reports free of any bias. Only impartial information to the masses will help the press and the country in the long run.
