Memos and Appointments – Media Speculation Gets It Wrong

Mar 10th, 2012 | By | Category: The Nation, The News

Media is sometimes said to be a reflection of the society. Most people enjoy a little idle gossip now and then, and a favourite past time of media too seems to be speculating – at times even wishing – about what the facts might be. However there is a difference between chatting with friends and the […]

Historical Revisionism

Feb 14th, 2012 | By | Category: Jang, The News

British Prime Minister Winston Churchill famously said, “History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it”. History will not be so kind to another Prime Minister, not if Ansar Abbasi (Jang Group) writes it. In fact, Ansar Abbasi has decided that rather than way for events to actually play out, he’s going […]

Ahmad Noorani Wrong Again

May 9th, 2011 | By | Category: Jang, The News

Writing for The News Ahmad Noorani reports that the government decided not to probe the Abbottabad attack. The government has decided not to conduct inquiry of any kind at any level whatsoever about the shameful Abbottabad incident to find out the real culprits responsible for intelligence failure and violation of Pakistani borders and sovereignty. Only […]

“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 […]

The News (Jang) Uses Double-Standard for PPP, PML-N

Jul 11th, 2010 | By | Category: Jang, The News

The News has had a difficult time lately with its star journalists using double standards for politicians that they like and don’t like. Mostly this has been making excuses for PML-N and giving no mercy to PPP. This would be fine if it was only on the opinion page, but rather it has been more […]

Ansar Abbasi For the Prosecution

Jun 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: The News

Reporting on court proceedings and legal matters is an important and legitimate duty of the media. But in doing so, journalists should be fair to both sides of a complaint. After all, it is up to the court to decide the outcome – not a reporter. For Ansar Abbasi, however, that restraint appears to be too […]

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 […]

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 […]
