Pakistan is ethnically, linguistically and culturally a diverse media consumer society of over 200 million – among the top five most populous countries on the planet. Volatile politics and wavering economic conditions for most parts have ensured the media in Pakistan has a boisterous history with thousands of journalism and entertainment outlets vying for people’s attention on current affairs despite unceasing battles with censorship.
