Many of us getting shocked at the behaviour of media, specially the established ones, like BBC and CNN and others, but this is due to our short-sightedness of understanding the media.
Yes, media like any other apparatus of state is to protect the interests of the big corporates and not the people!
Moment we grasp this basic, everything is clear and then after calling media paid, irresponsible, biased looses the meaning!

Further, media is business, like any other, lets say manufacturing, services or even agriculture, where profit is necessary for it to survive in the market, in its own industry as well as other, failing which, the capital will fly out to better rate of profit industry!

Which investor will love the news items to be published without his consent and digging his own grave!
