Disadvantages of Media in Democracy

It is sometimes used by some political leaders to shape public opinion in the wrong manner.
It may happen that the media would support only one political party and hence show the fake news.
It also spread misconceptions among people which would result in the lack of basic foundation in a democratic nation.
In words of Benito Mussolini –
“Democracy is a kingless regime infested by many kings who are sometimes more exclusive, tyrannical and destructive than one if he is a tyrant”. It is the fear of being exposed by the media before the public that most of the politicians keep themselves under control to some extent”
A democracy without media is like a vehicle without wheels.
