US Refutes Express Tribune Article, ISPR stays mum

Aug 27th, 2012 | By | Category: Express Tribune

Express Tribune reported on Monday that the US is ready to give control of three Afghan provinces to Haqqani militants if they promise to stop supporting the Afghan Taliban.

Express Tribune Joining Conspiracy Brigade?

Aug 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: Express Tribune

A disappointing move by Express Tribune which has been a relatively good source of unbiased information since its recent launch. Today the new blog on the news website includes a conspiracy column by discredited conspiracy theorist Ahmed Quraishi.

Hamid Mir and his Ridiculous Benchmarks for Success

Oct 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Uncategorized

Sana A’s point-by-point rebuttal of Hamid Mir’s latest piece…an excellent read! If anyone needed more proof of the media being overrun by the disgracefully uninformed, here it is. In this preposterous piece, Hamid Mir makes outlandish demands of United States’ policy whilst having the nerve to wonder at the mistrust between the US and Pakistan. […]
