Twelve news reports from the front page of six daily English newspapers of Pakistan were selected. Cloze procedure was applied to every news report and was distributed among the 360 students of the two teaching Departments of the University of Peshawar namely, English Department and the Department of Journalism & Mass Communication. Cloze scores were interpreted through a readability scale which showed that the readability of the text used by Pakistani English press is below the ease level of reading. The test scores also showed that the language background has a bit contribution on better readability scores. The test scores also provided that the foreign press uses a very difficult language in its text while local (Pakistani) press is comparatively using easy text but is still beyond the ease level of reading
