Case Study of the Recent Political Crisis in Pakistan
This paper revolves around the functioning of the electronic media in Pakistan and its role in last year’s political crisis. The paper questions whether the electronic media in the country is functioning as a source of independent reporting or pursuing various agendas. The role of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulation Authority (PEMRA) has also been discussed at length. A case study of Pakistan’s two leading media corporations has also been made which proves the assertion that the electronic media did, indeed, go haywire as far as the dharna (sit-in) crisis was concerned.
