Regarding, reference should be made to the current role of newspapers, especially regarding ions of Gen Y. When first appeared, around 1800the s newspapers were based on the following principle: they would try to show to the public the truth regarding events related to the social and political environment (Hackett 197). Initially, newspapers aimed to serve the promotion of democracy, as related to equality (Hackett 197). Through the decades, the role of newspapers, as of news media in general, has changed. The emphasis is currently given to social events and information instead of events related to politics (Hackett 198). In other words, today, the fight for democracy and equality, in which newspapers had a critical role, has become of secondary importance. In this context, it is expected that People of Gen Y who like to see their political concerns to be addressed would feel disappointed by newspapers.
Despite the above problem, news media has a unique role: providing information to people for their social and political environment. And without news media, it would be quite difficult for the public to be informed. Herman and Chomsky had developed the Propaganda Model, which highlights the close relationship between news media and the political/ social elite (Klaehn 148). Theorists have rejected the above Model because of the following reason: The Model promotes the idea that ‘news media acts as a mechanism of propaganda promoting elites’ interests’ (Klaehn 147). However, the above view cannot be accepted since it would lead to the assumption that in each society, ‘there are no intellectual forces but only institutional forces’ (Klaehn 148). As a result, the importance of newspapers in informing the public cannot be doubted, nor can it be claimed that newspapers are under the full control of elites. such an explanation would eliminate the role and the efforts of intellectual classes for securing democracy.
