Question and answer
2 first roles and responsibilities of media
First, the media needs to give people the information that they need in order to make informed decisions about issues of the day. [ For example, in the US today, it is the responsibility of the media to tell people about the contending budget plans that are being put out by the Republican and Democratic parties. If the media does not tell the people what the proposals say, the people will not know which they like better and, therefore, which party to support. Second, the media needs to act as a "watchdog" to ensure that government officials and agencies are acting in proper ways. The
media needs to investigate public officials whenever there seems to be any sort of wrongdoing going on. For example, the media needs to make sure that the public knows about things like the scandal surrounding Sen. Ensign of Nevada. source: enotes ]
