Newspapers are a boon of science & technology, and this invention can be used massively in enlightening the entire human race. I do not know how much I'll be able to give you a satisfactory answer, yet, I want to try to give an answer as much factual as possible.
As a matter of fact, nowadays newspaper articles are written to gain facilities from a special authority, and for this reason, many articles are written in such a biased way that it is understood, if observed carefully, what is the purpose of publishing such articles. And though the publishers should remain neutral or objective as much as possible in this sensitive case, they, shamelessly, behave partially and prioritize certain personality or a group of the society who controls the power. In fact, articles written by many well-educated civilians, become deliberately partial, and thus, those dignified persons reduce their dignity.
The well-educated, cultured civilians often do forget their role which they should play for their society and country. They think, they can easily avoid the poor and the illiterates. And the administrators of the country do not find it necessary to pay hed to the people they govern many a times. And, if such state continues for long, despotism arises. The society, then, is led toward chaos, nothing else.
Many a times media especially newspapers, being biased, publish articles about crimes (heinous crimes those occur especially because of political reason) in such an obscure and dubious way that it becomes difficult to comprehend what is the fact or motive behind the crime or who is the real criminal. Moreover, criminals like rapists, if supported by a power-holder group, remain behind the curtain even in newspapers also. Many newspapers, patronized by the opposition party, publish articles which are often critical of the ruling party, even if the Government is performing well.
These barbarous practices should be stopped, and it needs a collective effort to draw an end to this culture. Consequently, awareness in every level of the society is required. Newspapers should be utilized for a good purpose, must not be misused.
