میڈیا کی عدالت اور حسین حقانی

Nov 20th, 2011 | By | Category: Uncategorized

آج کل کے تمام تر ٹی وی کےپروگرامز کو دیکھنے کے بعد یہ اندازہ ھوا کہ ھمارا میڈیا انصاف کے اصولوں سے ناواقف ھے۔ کسی بھی ایک موضوع یا شخص کو ھدف بنا کر اپنی تمام توانائیاں صرف کر دیتے ھیں۔ کچھ اپنے اداروں کے مقاصد حاصل کرنے کی کوشش کرتے ھیں اور کچھ اپنے […]



Media’s Newest ‘Moment of Shame’

Nov 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, Ethics

It has been one year since the media caused a national crisis by inaccurately reporting that the government was plotting to withdraw notification to reinstate the judges sacked by Musharraf. Unfortunately, it seems that journalists and TV anchors did not learn from this ‘moment of shame’ and are once again causing alarm by rushing to […]



پھر وھی بات ” مبشر لقمان کے ساتھ “

Jul 6th, 2011 | By | Category: Blogs, Dunya, اردو

مبشر لقمان صاحب کے کل رات کے پروگرام کو دیکھنے کے باد اس بات کا انداذہ ھوتا ھے کہ شاید لقمان صاحب پروگرام سے پھلے اپنا ھوم ورک کرنا بھول گئے۔  لقمان صاحب نے پھر وھی سات ھزار ویزاز والا سوال کیا جس کا جواب کئ بار دیا جا چکا ھے۔ اس کے الاوہ لقمان […]



Disturbing Pattern Emerging at Dunya TV

Jul 6th, 2011 | By | Category: Dunya

Two items must be noted about the episode of Khari Baat of 4 July. First is that Mubashir Lucman repeats the old debunked visa conspiracy theory. Actually this claim that there are 7,000 Raymond Davis’s running around Pakistan is not only disproven but quite ridiculous also. In February, Ambassador Husain Haqqani held a press conference […]



The Nation Sets Example For Others

May 30th, 2011 | By | Category: The Nation

We noted last week that a report in The Nation mischaracterised a recent speech by Ambassador to US Husain Haqqani at National Defence University Islamabad. Two days later, the same newspaper issued a correction noting that actually the speech was friendly. Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani was not ‘shell-shocked’, as reported in a […]



The Nation Mischaracterises, Misquotes Ambassador’s Speech at NDU

May 26th, 2011 | By | Category: The Nation

On 18 May, Pakistan’s Ambassador to US Husain Haqqani arrived at National Defence University Islamabad to speak to students about foreign policy and Pak-US relations. A few days later, on 21 May, The Nation published an article titled ‘NDU audiences response surprises Haqqani’. This article, based on “sources privy to this lecture” described the Ambassador’s […]



Media Predictions Proved Wrong Yet Again

Mar 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Business Recorder, Pak Observer, Pakistan Today, The Nation

Last year we ran a short series on ‘Wishful Journalism’ that included an piece about media predictions that Husain Haqqani’s removal was imminent. These predictions were eventually proven incorrect, and the Ambassador was given an extension of one year. As that one-year extension approached its end this month, the predictions were once again revived and […]



Visas, Conspiracy Theories, and Propaganda Rings

Mar 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Blogs, Conspiracy Theories, Daily Mail, Pak Observer

When the US under President George Bush decided to invade Iraq, a well documented propaganda campaign was undertaken in which the American people were convinced that Saddam Hussein was involved in 9/11 attacks – a piece of misinformation that was necessary to justify the invasion of Iraq. The propaganda tactic used was a simple one […]



The Raoof Hasan Fiasco

Feb 12th, 2011 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, Pakistan Today

When I posted about the death of the Visa Conspiracy I wondered who would be the first person to dig the grave and drag the rotting corpse back out for one final blow. I must admit I was surprised, though, to see it not from one of the usual suspects but from CM Shahbaz Sharif’s […]



Americans Not Invading After All

Feb 12th, 2011 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories

It was said by Hermann Goering during the Nuremberg Trials, “The people don’t want war, but” they “can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and for exposing the country […]
