The different frameworks of Mass Media of this world are distinct as they are shaped by factors such as the polity, religion, culture, economy etc. Communist & societies following totalitarianism like the former USSR and China practised a very strict regulation and limitation on the extent of Media’s freedom, whereas, States like the USA followed a very liberal and non-restrictive attitude towards the Media.
