Some questions about the usage of "deliver" Hi I got one. Is "deliver" used correctly in this sentence: He accept messages delivered by media without criticizing them. And if the sentence is ok, what phrases can be substitutes for deliver here? Is "carry" ok here?

It is, but there are a few grammatical errors, and a possible usage or word choice issue. "To criticize" usually means "to judge negatively." It would probably be better to say "uncritically." Making that change, and correcting the errors, I would write: "He accepts messages delivered by the media uncritically." Other possibilities would be: "He accepts the media's messages uncritically," or, even more simply, "He accepts the media uncritically."
