AbstractAbstract Views: 212
The study “Analysis of the news coverage on Axact Software Company and Bol TV Channel in The News international- Karachi from May 2015 to May 2017 brings into focus newspaper coverage of the scam related to Axact Software Company and its upcoming TV Channel Bol.
This study explores how The News International Karachi newspaper portrays and frames the issue of Axact and the BOL television network. This study also defined how newspapers give coverage without applying ethical, moral values of news.
This study also discusses new media groups and related business rules set by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regularity Authority. The study finds a tendency in large media groups of the country to discourage the arrival of new media houses in the country. An environment of animosity between various media houses seems to exist that is further exacerbated in the absence of rules of the business set or vaguely set by the PEMRA.
The study also reflects upon ethical reporting standards, especially when it comes to coverage of the issues related to the media industry itself. Fair reporting, right to reply, balancing of views, known and quality sources, and provision of truth seem to be alien values for such coverage. Anti-News is not only published but also proudly accepted and cherished by the editors.
