TITLE :NEWS DISCOURSE AND POLITICS AN ANALYSIS OF DAWN TELEVISION NEWS ON COVERAGE OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR

ABSTRACT:The paper is an attempt to develop a multidisciplinary approach to study news discourse qualitatively using Critical Discourse Analysis as a methodology. The paper extensively studies elements of discourse like access, setting, news frames, in order to understand dichotomy of media-politics cycle and how news media maintains power and dominance by working in close tandem with political elites there by acting as secondary sources of news. A prime time programme of Dawn news broadcasted on the eve of Kashmir solidarity day on 5th February has been critically analysed television news media and its sub ordinate relation with powerful dominant sources of news further shifts the political wave towards a particular direction and media acting as a principal apparatus for such kind of shifts.
