      59% of respondents feel that news should be Unbiased and Objective.
      60% of respondents say that it’s important to know why something is happening, rather than just knowing it’s happening.
      Pakistanis do not have much faith that the judicial system works without outside influence (political/military).
      42% of respondents feel that Pakistan has no respect for human rights.
    • SUMMARY OF SHAHZAD AND MEDIA CENSORSHIP
      Public opinion surveys of Pakistanis show that trust, objectivity, and the explanation for news events are important factors for viewers. Pakistanis also do not expect much from the government in terms of a fair judicial system and human rights.
      These articles and broadcasts have the potential to raise awareness for human rights issues such as media censorship, holding the government accountable for the lack of press freedom.
      The idea of skepticism towards the judicial system is exemplified in the coverage concerning Shahzad, with a prevalent tone of pessimism for finding the guilty parties responsible.
