Crazy Talk Hamid Mir Aur Ansar Abbasi Kay Saath

May 12th, 2011 | By | Category: Geo TV

On Crazy Talk last night, Hamid Mir and Ansar Abbasi put on an incredible show. And by ‘incredible’ I mean, of course, without a shred of credibility. Also, though, I mean incredibly funny. Earlier in the day, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif issued a statement on the raid in Abbottabad. According to Hamid Mir, Nawaz’s speech […]

Apr 6th, 2011 | By | Category: Jang, The News

The popular talking point has become, once again, that the government is playing ‘Sindh card’ in its relationship to the judiciary. But a careful examination of recent media articles suggests that perhaps there is another player holding the cards. ‘Sindh card’ refers of course to the idea that President Zardari and other PPP politicians attempt […]



The News (Jang Group) Assault on Government

Apr 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: Jang, The News

The News (Jang Group) has taken a particularly adversarial tone against the government lately, with Jang’s celebrity journalists coming out with bald faced political attacks on the president and parliament based on nothing more than rumour, speculation, and conspiracy theories.
