From the Paper:

"Every country has their culture and network of media. Culture is a code for communication. It is of total accumulation of shared language, many beliefs, customs, activities, interactions, personal relations, institutions and communication patterns of an identifiable group of people (Dodds, 1987:37). It is generally accepted to be learned rather than inherited from childhood from families (Dodds 1987:38). As media is a form of communication, media and culture are inseparable. The media's role in the intercultural communication is complex. Media is the utility in producing modernization and national development (Dodds, 1987:157). It varies across many world nations due to different cultural variable which correlate with media presence."
