Dunya TV is one of Pakistan's larger television networks.

Last year the monitoring organization Freedom House rated Pakistan’s press as not free.  The rating factors in things like government control of media and the safety of journalists reporting in the country.However, WBEZ’s North Side Bureau Reporter Odette Yousef found out that many Pakistani journalists would challenge Freedom House’s score card.  She’s just returned from a U.S- Pakistani journalism exchange program in Pakistan.
