Media is the strongest communication channel and one of key players in making the world as a global village. This industry is more apparent to the world’s audience. Pakistan’s media has moved quite fast and is trying to beat the international hues of media. Our media is trying to highlight the problems but solutions are quite suppressed and left out in the open. Hence, it leads to more agitation and detained communication leading to despair of the nation. The role of the media is to voice the real information of the world. It is trying to bring a positive change by various forms for better socio-economic conditions in the long run but why one views so much grim in today’s media channels, print and radio.

This article will jot out the pros and cons of the media actual purpose behind talk shows. Definitely to answer that is it for increasing rating of the channel, betterment for the society and/or dealing personal grudges against the topic of the show/guests on the show.
