Example text

The broader parameters are set, but the configuration of the internal components is difficult to figure out. ). This dynamic also applies to the media, and it does so in two ways: The advent of cable and satellite TV has significantly eroded the sway of many a state-sponsored TV channel, whose national domain has found itself invaded by the programming of other nations, as well as by domestic and foreign regional networks31 or the private channels of further splintered special interest communities.
