I'm a student of Mass Communication from St. Joseph's College, Bangalore. For my Master Theses, I have chosen the topic 'The Influence of the Hindu Right-wing on the Print Media of Mangalore between 2008-2012.'
In this regard, I need some help with collecting literature for my research work and I request you to help me with news stories about how right-wing elements in Mangalore have used news media to propogate their ideology and how it has affected the readers of Mangalore. I would also like stories on how people of other communities, especially the minorities, are portrayed in the media by right-wing elements.
Some months ago, a journalist from a daily newspaper in Mangalore Vaartha Bharathi, Mr. Basheer, had given a talk in my College about news stories in this topic. One of them was on how a report of a young boy holding a green flag was sensationalised by the media who said that the boy was holding the flag of Pakistan. I'm looking for similar such stories for my research.
It would be very helpful for me if I could get the contact details of anyone who could help me in this regard.
Kindly consider my request and please help me out. A small sample of my proposal is attached.
Please reply here or you can also contact me through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
