The meaning of "instead" in the sentence below is "other than that" or "contraditory" or "contrary" or "nevertheless", or " in contrast". Which one is appropriate? 

Instead, its main evening news bulletin praises the government and Mr Duda daily and attacks Mr Trzaskowski, accusing him of being in cahoots with Jewish and LGBT interest groups.

Hi, Joshua—You appear to be quoting an article in your post; however, you have not placed the quotation in quotation marks (or mentioned the author's name, or the title of the piece of writing from which the quote was taken). That makes it look as though you are asking about a sentence you yourself have written and are uncertain of the meaning of a word that you have chosen to use.

I am not going to take the time to search for the article you are quoting, since you should have provided a link for us, or provided more context. However, it is clear from the quotation in isolation that "Instead" is a transition word introducing a fact which is in contrast to some other fact or facts from the part of the article you have plagiarized and failed to quote or provide a link to.
