Multicuturalism and role of the media-a complex subject. the media though sets agenda, but until the society changes it perception about the way things are done by different people the media role in change cant be effective. Angela Merkel had given clear testimonies and would continue to exist because of us in the media belong to and part of that complex society where one will consistently override the other. the chnage will begin right from the way we train our children-"marry from this family", dont do this or that because its the culture of this inferior society. this can be done away with only if the so rich will be willing to share their wealth with the poor, not employing them as gate men, cleaners, bodyguards, houseboys and women, not sexually exploiting the poor but beautiful women, not exploiting nations resources and make the people there vulnerable to begging etc.

I am living in Europe since long and I still don't understand the meaning of the word" Democracy" and Racism,,,,,,media should try to work more independently sothat the real meaning could be approached more directly.,,,,media knows that politician only deliver false promises and don't like to have critics at all.I shall come back in two days about my views about muticulturalism.

I think that media and politics together play a role in forming perceptions about other cultures. Unfortunately, media is sometimes misused to serve politics. That's the main problem that's causing many of us to think that the differences between the East and the West are huge and just can't be bridged.

Criminalization of defamation: 'press freedom' or judicial integrity?

In a web search for defamation, one sees various articles mentioning the criminalization of defamation: in a variety of countries, such as eastern European or Russian countries, or Zimbabwe. Various human rights organizations or NGOs are reported to have signed protests against recent attempts to re-introduce criminal defamation into law in some of them. It is often argued as an attack on press freedom.The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) does not apparently support criminalization of…See More
