The News sinks to a new low with report on Zardari's nationality

Jun 14th, 2010 | By | Category: The News

The News has sunk to a new low in yellow journalism today by publishing an article that titled, ‘Website declares Zardari US citizen.’ Rather than conduct any actual research, The News appears to have simply repeated a rumour. Based on the content of the article, one has to wonder if the author, Azim M Mian, […]

Geo's Hamid Mir: Conspiracy Theorist Charged with Conspiracy

May 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Geo TV, Jang

I have been holding off on this story for a while just because I wanted to see if it actually developed into anything. Sometimes these things pop up, but then quickly disappear if there’s nothing to them. Actually, I will not take any opinion about the validity of the charges, but I think that since […]

Who is Shaheen Sehbai working for?

May 10th, 2010 | By | Category: The News

Shaheen Sehbai is back with more of his psychic magic in The News. Today he uses his psychic powers to read the mind of, as usual, President Zardari who he says is ‘on a warpath‘ against, well, everyone. But today’s column takes a new, and troubling direction. While the silliness and contradictions that we have […]

The following report comes from the blog Let Us Build Pakistan. LUBP is an independent blog by supporters of PPP. Pakistan Media Watch is not partisan (we have defended individuals from different political parties, and will continue to) but only seeks to correct inaccurate and misleading information in the media. We are re-posting this analysis […]

Asif Ezdi's Legal Troubles

May 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: Jang, The News

Mr. Asif Ezdi, a former ambassador to Germany, has some pretty serious legal troubles. Mostly, troubles are understanding how laws work in a constitutional democracy. Last week we wrote about how Ezdi was propagating the latest conspiracy theory in the media about Zardari expanding his powers by signing the 18th Amendment. Today, Mr. Asif is […]

Where is Amir Mateen?

Apr 27th, 2010 | By | Category: Jang, The News

Where is Amir Mateen? When he first returned to The News we were told that he would be doing profiles of the political parties. He then proceeded to publish three very long and somewhat entertaining, if not informative, profiles of PML-Q, PML-N, and PPP. Since then, however, he has gone missing! This is truly a […]

Shaheen Sehabi Explains What It Means To "Have No Shame"

Apr 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Jang, The News

Amir Mateen’s attempt a script writing seems to have disappointed ‘The Godfather’ of wild storylines, Amir’s mentor Shaheen Sehbai. In today’s The News, Sehbai shows Mateen how to really write an attack column. Sehbai’s column targets his favourite topic, of course, Asif Ali Zardari. Before we begin, we must mention that The News has published […]

The Jang Group – how low the standards would fall?

Apr 13th, 2010 | By | Category: Jang, The News

The following was posted by Mr. Yousuf Nazar at his own blog, State of Pakistan, on Saturday, 10 April 2010. Mr. Nazar makes excellent observations about the increasingly poor so-called ‘reporting’ being published by The News (Jang Group). I am getting quite fed up with the planted, biased, illiterate, and highly unprofessional so-called reporting by […]
