“I Brought Criticism for Right Points”

Talking about symposium’s benefits for himself Res. Asst. Çeçen stated that it was vital to follow different speakers from communication and said: “It was a precious experience for me to meet different academician from different universities. My study’s appreciation became a serious motivation for my next studies.”

Conveying his opinions about “Best Paper” award Res. Asst. Çeçen, stating that he was in a fear because he had criticized very important academician Entman’s significant Cascading Activation Model, said: “I think that I dominate technical literature and I brought criticism for the right points. So I can say that I was expecting this award. And my study may be a touchstone for the ones who want to study about international communication and foreign news.
