No evidence to support accusations in ATM theft article

Aug 10th, 2011 | By | Category: Jang, The News

We missed this article in The News when it was published on 5 August, but it was brought to our attention by dear reader Xeeshan. After shaking our heads in disbelief, we decided that it was an excellent example of the type of poor reporting and sensationalism that is too prevalent in media even on […]



Ansar Abbasi and The News Inciting Possible Murder

Mar 12th, 2011 | By | Category: Jang, The News

Ansar Abbasi’s front page article of 12 March is a dangerous game of promoting anti-Americanism and vigilante violence in the country. In the column, Abbasi lists the names of 55 Americans who he terms ‘suspicious’ and ‘alleged to have been spying’. Neither the reporter nor the newspaper present any evidence for these claims, rather they […]

Oct 6th, 2010 | By | Category: Uncategorized

In an opinion column published in today’s The Nation, “Ridding ourselves of the US“, Shireen Mazari makes several incorrect claims about incidents and statistics in the war against militants.

Majid Nizami’s newspapers have long been a reliable source of conspiracy theories and accusations against alleged spies of all sorts.

The Nation's Article About ISI Report Filled With Factual Errors

Jun 18th, 2010 | By | Category: The Nation

The Nation has published an article criticising a recent report published by London School of Economics (LSE) that claims the Taliban is working under direction of ISI. The article, by reporter Sikander Shaheen, is shameful as it is a hysterical conspiracy theory with a complete lack of factual basis. Actually, the only source that The […]
