Discourse on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor in Print Media: The Case Study of American and Indian Press
China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a project between China and Pakistan on economic and geo-strategic grounds. This research examines the news reports, editorials and opinions of the leading American and Indian English newspapers. The contents of these newspapers were analyzed qualitatively to find out as to how print media frames the projects of CPEC from 20th August, 2018 to 19th August, 2019. The unified posture of news reporting is identified in all selected dailies of both countries. Reinforcement of negative stance taken by the Indian and American newspapers through their contents shapes public opinion around the world in general and in their countries in particular in accordance with the policies of their governments. America has also opposed the China’s investment in CPEC projects to confront Chinese economic supremacy, particularly in South Asian region. The analyses of selected newspapers suggested also an image of what media frame and projects an issue to the world.
