MISSION, REALITY AND CURRENT CHALLENGES OF THE MASS MEDIA IN THE 21st CENTURY

Author: Marcel LINCÉNYI, Getnet TAMENE

Abstract: The mass media plays a significant liaison role of providing the social reality to recipients of the current society. During such commercial period as of today, however, the mass media prefers the entertaining function, while minimizing, or even eliminating, the informative, canvassing, cultural and educative functions, thus fails to realize its public role for the society. Most media, today, from news to advertising, rely on spectacle, simplification and exaggeration to grab and hold audiences. Much of the current media is beset by idealization and demonization in which media manipulators depict themselves and their allies as heroes and saints, and their opponents or targets as villains, fools and disturbed characters, both to create exciting stories and win battles. What is missing is precisely the information, which would discredit the system and result in reforms that would lock out many of those who now work to maintain the system solely for their own benefit.

Keywords: mass media, role, features, public opinion, social reality

These benchmarks are kinds of tools that will be use to achieve the comparison and to show up how original the ACPRH is, to what extend the African system differs from other regional systems.
