Jul 15th, 2012 | By | Category: Dunya, Geo TV, Samaa TV

Speaking at a forum in Washington earlier this year, President GEO TV Imran Aslam proudly described his channel’s political activism. He spent most of the time talking about activism against the Hudood ordinances – a great example for an American audience, but hardly the only (or most common) issue.

Many were suprised by the way Meher Bokhari was offered a position at Dunya TV following her treatment of Salmaan Taseer, but after seeing the leaked videos from last night’s Khari Baat Lucman Kay Saath, those same people may be thinking that Mian Amir got what he paid for. Meanwhile, the anchor has reportedly been suspended for his […]

Documents reveal that the case is based on statements by Lucman considered to be “false and malicious allegations due to the current tense political situation in the country, especially high level of anti-Americanism…intentionally aimed at provoking and inciting mobs or extremists to engage […]



Mubasher Lucman’s Social Media Campaign

Jan 15th, 2012 | By | Category: Dunya

A few months ago we warned Shahid Masood and Azeem Mian that Mubasher Lucman had entered the race for PTI Media Advisor and taken the contest to a whole new level. It seems that with the government’s troubles and PTI’s rising popularity, Mr lucman has stepped up his campaign using a popular PTI format – […]



Pakistan’s journalists abandoned by the courts

Jan 13th, 2012 | By | Category: Uncategorized

This week marked a dark day in the history of Pakistani journalism. The last refuge of justice in our country closed the door to the journalist community, and sent a message loud and clear that Pakistan’s journalists have no rights when faced with threats from powerful quarters. We are referring, of course, to the judicial […]



Making Sense on Memogate

Nov 26th, 2011 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, Dunya

It is unfortunately more common that our reports examine inappropriate and unprofessional behaviour by our respected journalists. Occasionally, however, there are moments that make us proud to be associated with the profession and we do like to recognise these as well. After a week of media circuses, we are pleased to be able to once […]



میڈیا کی عدالت اور حسین حقانی

Zeher Bokhari

Aug 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Dunya

Meher Bokhari appears to have a formula for getting attention – say something so outrageous and sensational that people will have to pay attention. I regret that we will draw attention to her program again, but the episode of Crossfire of Wednesday night cannot go without response. The topic of the programme was allegedly Pak-India relations […]



محر بخاری اور ان کا انداز

Aug 11th, 2011 | By | Category: Dunya, Uncategorized, اردو

محر بخاری اپنے پروگرام کراس فائر میں مختلف قابل سیاست دانوں اور پالیسی میکرز کو بطور گیسٹ بلاتی ھیں۔ لیکن جس طریقے سے وہ اپنے مہمانوں سے گفتگو کرتی ھیں وہ نہایت شرمناک ھے۔ محر بخاری کے کل شب کے پروگرام کو دیکھنے کے بعد کچھ یوں محسوس ھوتا ھے کہ وہ اپنی بدتمیز طرزعمل […]
