Ahmed Quraishi and Hamid Mir and the Imaginary ‘Extremist Liberal’

Jan 17th, 2011 | By | Category: Jang, The News

I must admit that I was surprised to see Ahmed Quraishi eulogizing Salmaan Taseer this morning. He eloquently praises the late Governor for his principled stand and laments his killing. But I also found his column somewhat crass – a political operative exploiting a national tragedy to promote his political agenda. Ahmed Quraishi’s eulogy for […]



Dear Propagandists, Keep Digging

Dec 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Daily Mail

The propagandists behind the fake Wikileaks story that was exposed by The Guardian continue trying to dig their way out of the hole they have found themselves in. What is curious is that faced with inarguable proof that they have finally been caught manufacturing stories, they only continue to protest their innocence and refuse to […]



Ahmed Quraishi’s Web Continues to Unravel

Dec 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Blogs, Express Tribune

Ahmed Quraishi is back in the news again, but not for the reason he might like. Rather the prolific consipiracy theorist has caught the attention of actual journalists and commentators who are exposing his antics. This is not the first time that Quraishi has been criticised by real journalists. One year ago he received a […]



Conspiracies, Media and a Willing Public

Dec 11th, 2010 | By | Category: Uncategorized

I’m glad that the discussion of these fake Wikileaks cables has not ended with the apology of some newspapers. I’m truly disappointed – no, I am truly depressed – that even after the story is admitted to be fake, some newspapers and TV networks continue to peddle the story. If it is unknown to be […]



Web of Deceit: Cafe Pyala's Expose of Internet Propaganda

Nov 29th, 2010 | By | Category: Blogs, Conspiracy Theories

The blog Cafe Pyala recently published an incredible expose of the tangled web of deceit an Internet propaganda ring being run by a group of supposed journalists (original in full below the jump). Far from the conspiracy theories that are relentlessly promoted on several of the blogs that have been exposed, the work of the […]



Ahmed Quraishi v. Ahmed Quraishi on Geo

Oct 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, Geo TV, Jang

Ahmed Quraishi has weighed in on the media debate. In his typical style, Quraishi ignores the more thoughtful discussion of his more intellectual colleagues in journalism and jumps straight to accusations of some American conspiracy against Geo for being “critical of Mr. Zardari”. But upon careful reading, Quraishi’s critique quickly falls apart. Quraishi’s entire claim […]



Ahmed Quraishi, Most 'Weird' Pakistani Journalist, Takes Propaganda to New Lows – Turns Computer Glitch at WH into Conspiracy Theory

Oct 17th, 2010 | By | Category: Uncategorized

Ahmed Quraishi seems to have an unnatural obsession with Ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani. It seems that Quraishi pays attention to little except following the Ambassador’s every move and trying to invent some conspiracy of one form or another. In his latest attempt, Quraishi distorts a computer error at the White House by suggesting […]



Conspiristan

Sep 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories

“Conspiristaan” is the name that journalist Syed Abidi invokes in an article for ILIM TV’s website yesterday. Though Mr Abidi is discussing the reaction to the murder of Dr Imran Farooq, his assessment is also apt when one considers the past week of reporting. As pointed out by Mr Abidi, the nation’s numerous conspiracy theorists […]



Ahmed Quraishi and Flood Contributions

Aug 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Express Tribune

Ahmed Quraishi’s latest blog post for Express Tribune (why are they giving this discredited conspiracy theorist a platform?) is either a c-grade comedy routine or further evidence that Ahmed Quraishi is willing to ignore facts when they are inconvenient to his political agenda. Ahmed Quraishi, by his own admission, is a political consultant who is […]



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. Quraishi’s post is a perfect example of his style of disinformation and sleight-of-hand propaganda. He begins with […]
