B. Condemning specific policy initiatives.

D. Providing information about a policy.

A

Answer: D. Providing information about a policy.

The main function of the media is primarily to publicize events. The media provides clarity in information to any event or occurrence. In the making of a public policy, the media only publicizes the policy. Since the media is neutral in all matters, it only makes it public and does not come to conclusions as regards condemnation or promotion. The media could be able to expose how bad it is but will not as it causes media interference.
