Abstract: A combination of economic growth and committed revenue rising should give most governments considerable scope to devote increased resources in addressing the issue of poverty. In fighting poverty, we need to briefly review the extent and nature of poverty across nationals. We then consider the role of the media and revenue raising tools that can hamper social expenditure. Poverty is a state of insolvency in which man cannot meet all the obligations required for survival. In handling problems of poverty we also need to analyze whether the introduction of credible unemployment benefit schemes would aid labour market reform and the process help in solving the problems there of in work poverty. We have to and improvements in the media sector targeting social assistance and categorical benefits directed to reducing poverty. Important to note is that, inequality is increasing around the world, while the world appears to be globalizing. Even the wealthiest nations have the largest gap between the rich and the poor. But in many cases, international politics and various policies have led to a diversion of resources from domestic and various policies have led to s diversion of available resources from domestic needs to the external world and keeping developing nations in continuous poverty. Historically, politics and power play by the elite leaders and rulers have increased poverty and dependency. These have often manifested themselves in wars, and the mercantile practices while presented as free trade still today. Poverty is therefore not just an economic issue; it is also an issue of political economics. However, this research is then intended to find out whether the media is playing any important role in fighting poverty. I will gather information from various theories about poverty and reaching various respondents in a bid to address the issue of poverty in Uganda, and identifying the roles the media is playing in fighting poverty.
