|dc.description.abstract||It is my immense pleasure to thank my supervisor Sheikh Mohammad Shafiul Islam, Associate Professor and Head (acting) of the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication at Daffodil International University. The door of Mr Islam’s office was always open whenever I ran into a trouble or had a question about my study. He consistently allowed this paper to be my own work, but steered me in the right the direction whenever he thought I needed it.
I would like to thank the rest of my teacher and mentors: Honourable Prof. Dr. Sakhawat Ali Khan, Prof Dr. M. Golam Rahman, Mr. Saleem Ahmed, Dr. Towfique E Elahi, Mr. Aftab Hossain, Shariful Islam and Mr. anayetur Rahman for their encouragement, insightful comments, and hard questions all the time whenever I wanted.
I must express my very profound gratitude to my parents and to my friends for providing me with unfailing support, space and encouragement throughout my study and through the process of researching and writing this thesis. This accomplishment would not have been possible without them||en_US
