LS polls: Media loses credibility

Dear Madam,
A large section of the media lost their credibility. Now, the pollsters joined them after the 2024 Lok Sabha exit polls. Just like the opposition parties, it is the duty of the media to ask the government questions of the people. Media is a bridge between the ruling (and opposition) parties and the people. But apart from some notable exceptions, the fourth estate preferred the role of cheerleaders of the ruling batting side.
