Default Journalism Paper 2014

Section 1

2. Do you think that internet is flattening the cultural differences and synching distinct cultures on some common grounds? Discuss critically

3. Media do not tell you what to think, but what to think about. This premise signifies the role of media as an agenda setter. However recent research on agenda setting explores the media's role in framing the most salient aspects of an issue and let the people think not only about the issue but also affect thinking process of the viewers. Discuss the distinction about agenda setting and framing(as a secondary-level agenda setting) theories.

4. Media seems to have limited role in developing people political attitude, rather than individual attitude and behaviour are greatly shaped by groups they are associated with.

5. It is not socio-economic strata (SES) of the people that creates knowledge gap in asocial systems advocated by relatively old knowledge-Gap theory But the Digital Divide which creates information-rich and information-poor groups in a society. critically discuss the two by making a clear distinction between them..

Section 2

6. Media and media practitioners are naive and are unable to understand the complexity of social and political problems of a country. Hence, they need to be governed and their affairs should essentially be regulated. Don't you think this premise is against the canons of freedom of expression? discuss

7. In election 2013, social media were used as a vehicle as political advertising by the leading political parties of Pakistan. Do you think that sociAL media had considerable effect on the election results? support you answer with concrete examples.

8. write short notes on the following topics:

a. non-verbal communication
b. meta communication
c. press note vs press communique
d. The news corporation

Media
I think this year journalism is slaughtered . One has to write down only about the media but with different perspective .

this journalism paper invites deep study and analytical approach indeed...candidate with rot memorization never make difference in my point of view but its an opportunity for those to rise up who has indepth preparation of mass com or journalism...
like 2009 this years css papers are very much tricky and thought provoking...who has organized and articulate his existing knowledge as per papers demands will surely be successfull

Length of questions does not help either, rather it makes understanding vague. In fact that how Journalism papers have been for last couple of years, overly generalized papers which consequently yield very low scores.

Aaaaahhhaaa Ye hota hai na paper.. Journalism ki kitaab bhi na kholi ho or paper bhi hojaye

Indeed, a difficult one for those who had crammed media laws, ethics, news, magazine journalism, etc etc etc :P

By the way MCQs were a bit thought-provoking :P

Default Brilliant!

Allah Ta'la uss banday ya bandi ko jannat main jaga naseeb karay, jinho nay iss saal k Islamic Studies aur Journalism k questions nikaalay.

Absolutely loved attempting Islamic Studies and Journalism exams. The questions were like your friend or an interviewer in a room where you were asked to express your critical analysis, show depth of your knowledge, and how you connect different aspects of learning process in to an argument.

This was the exam where you could put references of Wikileaks, (Bradley) Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald, NSA, and how freedom of expression has come under constant attack and sabotage recently.

You could also blend in role of social media, especially Facebook & Twitter, in bringing people from distinct cultures together on one platform and find common grounds; such as how activism of people, citizens, and activists from Arab Spring in Middle East, Pink Tide in Brazil, and Euro Maidan in Ukraine brought people of common interest together and how they could relate to each other on social media and internet by sharing their stories despite having difference in cultures and distance of continents.

This was a magnificent exam. Can not stress enough how much I loved attempting this exam. Brilliant.

May Allah bless you all and give success, do not despair if you could not express yourselves in the exams as Lord knows better. Keep trying and you would bear fruits of your hard-work, this way or that way. Keep the faith.

Yes true. People who just come to enjoy the exam hall, are feeling happy. But who want allocation in PAS, feeling hurt with this paper. :-P

You are right dear but the paper says that one should have to attempt four questions. Besides, it is understood that performing in a single question does not mean good marks. after all the paper was tough.
