Now the 21st century revolutionized the media world and this era witnessed a fundamental shift in the way we communicate from traditional print media like newspaper, and television and the modern media like social media. The driven force for all communication is the freedom of speech and expression under Art: 19(1) (a) of the Indian Constitution provides for freedom of speech and expression, by the virtue of this freedom media goes on reporting the news and publishing the articles based on the interview of the witnesses and other parties regarding the matters which are sub judice pending before the court of law and by doing this the media can cause pre judice to the case and affect the administration of justice which will lead to the miscarriage of justice. Media in high profile cases through conducting the investigations and continuous reporting of the news can create so much of hype on the sub judice matters that can cause prejudice and will affect the administration of justice and may lead to miscarriage of justice, the judge has to be impartial and shall pass the verdict only on the basis of the facts and the evidence produced in the court of law but the hype created by media prejudices the mind of judges and may force the judge to pass the verdict against the accused even though the accused is innocent.This paper focuses on how such trial conducted by the media affects the right to fair trial of the accused and brings the conflict between the freedom of press, fair trial and independence of judiciary Trail by media shows the different aspects of the society and the community which at all directly impacts the Judiciary System of any Constitution and it can’t be denied that the India itself is a big example for the same as it’s the biggest sufferer in field of Judiciary by the act of Media Trial.

The study indicates that many lawyers believe that there were instances where judges altered the judgment due to media influence and where “intensive case analysis by media before completion of the legal process” which impacted the verdict. It also says that “for a long time, India’s criminal justice system has remained unenthusiastic about allowing unfettered media access to their functions and deliberations”. People might suffer enormously when the decision-making process is vitiated by external factors of any kind. Research has been conducted on the intervention of media in cases under trial. The literature indicates that trial by media is a dynamic process through which people are exposed to public opinion where they are condemned without being heard.
