Should media be regulated?
Much has been said and done on the issue of media regulation. Concerns start from the point of piracy, copyright violations to unsafe and unsuitable data for kids, child pornography etc.
Without going into the details, I would like to know what’s your countries stand on media regulation and to what extent is it regulated? Should internet also come under the ambit of the so-called government regulation, or should it be self-regulatory? With the internet being flooded with more and more bloggers trying to put forth their opinions, should any body (statutory or otherwise) interfere just to make sure that the content being displayed is safe for the audience to view, or is this idea a total ridicule?
What’s your stand?

People need to have something to hate. They can’t be united if they can’t hate something passionately in a group. That’s how it works. That’s the answer to almost every social opinion. That’s how we make friends. If you’re neutral, then you’ll be isolated and alone. Why was/is wikileaks an independent collective of journalists? Because of the constant censorship we deal with every day.
@Ren Sex sells. I also hate Barbie. People choose their own role models and media gives them what they want to see, so they could get more money and the consumers are also happy. Yay. And mediocre.
