There is no doubt that news being broadcast subject to biased opinions. There are a number of factors that influence it and this essay will outline some of those factors and explain the outcome if the news reported was transparent.
Out of all the factors that induce the news, the most important one's are greed and perception. it is a natural behavior of most humans to support a viewpoint just out of greed. This is the reason due to which several times media editors report positive arguments for a particular political party even though the reported facts lack validation. Additionally, every individual whether it is a news media editor or writer has their own perception to grasp the news and respond accordingly. For instance. one reported might write optimistically about dowry-system, while others might be against dowry-system. Not only this, it has become prevalent these days for certain news editors to support issues that are not worthy of attention, just because of their greed and perception.
Nevertheless, it has become common among people to absorb the false news because of their dependency on media leaving them as an easy target to be influenced. For instance, recently a young boy faced huge backlash from all the nation after he was wrongly accused as a rapist by a news platform, which was later clarified by police as a news broadcasted without validation by fact-checkers. Conversely, if the valid news was shown, it would have helped in curtailing such crimes. Since numerous crimes and injustice goes unnoticed due proliferation of false information.
To recapitulate, diversity in perception and individual's greed has resulted in biased news being absorbed and acted upon by common citizens, I believe there would be a significant plummet in crimes if the valid and unbiased news gets written.
