Reporting Afghanistan is part of an ongoing project to monitor various types of conflicts as covered by select samples of media in Pakistan, including newspapers and TV channels.

In this report, the focus is on Afghan conflict and related issues as reported by Pakistani media. The report contains in depth content analysis of news coverage of Afghan conflict and related issues in three newspapers and three TV news channels, over the period of five months — i.e. from May1, 2012 to August 31, 2012.

The report has been prepared by Intermedia Pakistan, a Pakistani media development organization focusing on advocacy, research and training on media issues.

When the state fails in tackling these deeply emotional issues, volunteers come forward to help.
