Abstract:
Freedom of thought and expression is the most basic of all liberties. Dissemination of information by media is considered to be part of freedom of speech and expression under the Indian Constitution. Media is a significant source of information about crime and safety in India. This paper aims to assess the role the media as eye-spies and its influence on the social crimes. An attempt is made to describe the structure of media, media ethics and its functions. Influence of media coverage of information relating to social crimes is dealt with in three ways. Influence of media coverage on prevention, identification and adjudication processes is analyzed in the Indian context. In a transition society like India, it is a very sophisticated issue to expect media to comply with dominant news values. The issue is further complicated due to the fact that media houses are run like business entities. Added to this, there is unhealthy competition. Despite all these implications, at the end of this paper space for positive results is delineated in terms of prevention of crimes, media misuse, misconception and stigmatization.
