Foreign media presentation 2 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. DunyaNEws
    Analysis of Dunya News stories in text and English, located on the Dunya online news site.
  • 2. Story 1
  • 3. Take decisive action against terrorists, hillary asks pakistan
    Content Characteristics:
    Optimistic tone (“Pakistani authorities did not know about Osama’s presence in Pakistan”, “the US wanted a stable, secure and prosperous Pakistan”)
    Bias towards US, contains only US sources
    Sources: US Secretary Hillary Clinton, Mike Mullen (Admiral, US Joint Chiefs of Staff)
    Audience views/Public Opinion: quotes Hillary acknowledging “differences exist with Pakistan on some issues”, states US wants Pakistan to aid in fight against terrorism.
  • 4. Story 2
  • 5. Mike Mullen dashes to pakistan, Hillary due on friday
    Content Characteristics
    Language: “dashes” evokes urgency, “reconciliatory” statement implies US is attempting to right a wrong
    Bias: fairly objective
    Sources: President Barack Obama, unspecified “reports”
    Audience Views/Public Opinion: Hillary is said to be coming to Pakistan to “ease the tensions”, evokes idea of strife between US/PAK relationship
  • 6. Story 3
  • 7. Hillary’s visit helped remove misunderstandings: FO
    Content Characteristics:
    Misleading lead- Story does not mention any clarification of misunderstandings, rather the topic of the visit (drone attacks, national sovereignty) is mentioned
    Sources: Pakistan Foreign office spokesperson TehminaJanjua
    Audience Views/Public Opinion: Story says “relations with US have recently been bumpy,” evokes idea that relationship is strained
  • 8. Summary
    The 3 news stories are fairly objective, relying on mainly US sources. This could be due to the fact that the stories are in English and reach either English-speaking natives or Western audiences.
    These news stories seem to reflect the result of the “Pakistani Public Opinion on Democracy” study by the Institute of Peace and where a majority of Pakistanis don’t believe the US can be trusted to act responsibly. The longer lasting affects of US/Pak talks will remain to be seen post Osama bin Laden.
