1 Minute Speech on the Importance of Media In English

Very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I’ll be giving a short speech on the topic of the importance of media. 

Google defines the term ‘media’ to be “the main means of mass communication (broadcasting, publishing, and the internet) regarded collectively.” Media thus is the predominant source of information that prevails in society.

Be it newspapers, news snippets, or the live news that is broadcasted across various news channels that are now in existence, media also becomes the main source of a much more important thing- news. Without media, people of the world would have no access to the happenings across the globe, their nation, or even their own immediate surroundings. Media thus is a tool for one to be empowered with knowledge, thus making it very important.

Today, life without media becomes a violation of basic human rights. It denies one of the truths, becoming an oppressive form of censorship practiced in a few countries. Freedom of media is important thus. 

Thank you.
