Hamid Mir’s Latest Source Admits Making Whole Thing Up

Jun 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Geo TV, Jang, The Nation, Waqt TV

On Wednesday’s Capital Talk, Hamid Mir showed an interview with an unnamed source who claimed to have first-hand knowledge of infiltrators who helped militants attacks PNS Mehran last month. You can see the clip below starting at the 6-minute mark.

The source, speaking through his tears, makes wild claims about not only infiltrators in the military but plans to attack an American airline also. His claims don’t make any sense, but rather than ask questions that might help determine if he is telling the truth, Hamid Mir suggests how the source might change his story to make it more believable. He actually helps his source invent his story while he’s speaking!

When the show cuts back, Hamid Mir pleads for protection for the young man implying that as thin as his sources story is, we should believe it.

Actually, we shouldn’t believe it. In less than two days, the source appeared on Waqt TV saying he made the whole thing up to get revenge over a love dispute.

Hamid Mir Source Muhammad Junaid

The man who made sensational claims about the PNS Mehran base attack has turned out to be a disparate lover who fabricated the story just to revenge his failure in marrying a sister of an army man. Muhammad Junaid in an interview with Waqt News confessed that he had nothing to do with the Karachi naval base attack. “I am not a witness to it and totally unaware of the facts about it,” he said.

This is a classic example of unprofessionalism and poor reporting. Rather than investigate and ask tough questions to get to the bottom of the story, Hamid Mir appears to help the young man with his lies. Despite the fact that the man presented no evidence, Hamid Mir accepts his story without question and broadcasts the interview on television even requesting security for the man.

Muhammad Junaid claims that he made the whole thing up to get revenge in a love dispute. What is Hamid Mir’s excuse?

Why?

  14. What Hamid Mir did to settle his score with the equally despicable Newspaper/News Group “NawaiWaqt/Nation” is as under and he did that under the garb of Eulogizing the services of Syed Saleem Shahzad, read his “Language” and watch the TV Show wherein he repeated the “Lie” he relayed on GEO TV – “Lies, Damn Lies and Hamid Mir” & Wiki Leaks on Jang Group. http://chagataikhan.blogspot.com/2011/06/lies-damn-lies-and-hamid-mir-wiki-leaks.html
