Asslam o alikum
Above mentioned data was extracted from "Google Trends". It has two graphs
- Top one for the alternative media hits called "search volume"
- Bottom one is for the Mainstream media hits or as they called it "news reference"
Two lines on each graph, Blue and Red, represent Imran (blue) and Nawaz (Red).
It can be clearly seen that
- When people get to choose/search/follow themselves, they have chosen IK over NS, since Nawaz's return from KSA (i.e. even in 2007, IK was more popular than Nawaz). But, if we look at mainstream media trend, they seem to cover NS more. So it means
-> Either mainstream media has a bias in favor of NS because of monetary gains
-> Or they (mainstream media) lack the ability to truly represent the public
-> Combination of both
- it also shows that mainstream media does not run very friendly with the alternative media HENCE we see increasing clash between them (e.g. Anchors not liking the fact that people can express their anger on Facebook etc)
Let me know what you guys think about it.
