Aug 8th, 2011 | By | Category: Blogs, Jang, Uncategorized, Urdu Media, اردو

اتوار کے جنگ اخبار کی سرخی کو دیکھنے کے بعد جنگ اخبار کی کھوکھلی رپورٹنگ کھل کر سامنے آ جاتی ھے۔ اتوار کی سرخی نیچے ملاحضہ فرمائیے اگر غور کریں تو پتا چلتا ھے کہ صارفین سے ایک نھیں بلکے کئی جھوٹ بولے جارھے ھیں۔ سب سے پھلی کوتاھی ھے بنا تصدیق یہ خبر چھاپنا کہ […]

A front page article in The News by Mayed Ali that claims to report on the assault on PNS Mehran on Sunday night, but after listing details about the combat radius and onboard radar of the destroyed Orion aircraft the reporter ventures into the land of Hollywood movie-style conspiracy plots.

Mar 9th, 2011 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, Pak Observer, The Nation

Conspiracy theories continue to dominate the coverage of the ongoing Raymond Davis saga, and it seems that the wilder and less supported by evidence, the more popular the conspiracies become. Ata Rabbani writes in The Nation that Raymond Davis was part of a secret plot to destroy Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal. In the first sentence of […]



Pak Journalists: Conspiracy Theories and Willful Ignorance

Mar 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, Daily Lahore Post, Dawn News TV, Express News, Express Tribune

As the details of the assassination of Shahbaz Bhatti begin coming to light, journalists are scrambling to meet deadlines and be the first to have the lead report on the topic. In this rush, mistakes will be made and facts will go unverified. But a much greater problem plagues media accounts – the willingness of […]



Daily Nawa-e-Waqt Publishes More Taliban PR

Sep 29th, 2010 | By | Category: Daily Nawa-i-Waqt

We have shown previously troubling examples of both English language and Urdu language media publishing what is little more than PR for banned organizations including militant organizations like Taliban. Another glaring example of this behaviour has appeared this week in Nawa-i-Waqt. On 27 September, Nawa-i-Waqt published the article titled, “Afia’s sentence is a challenge to […]

We have been writing lately about evidence of media priorities and questions about whether some news organizations are providing PR for banned organizations and jihadi groups.

Drone Attacks And Roots of Terror

Jun 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: The Nation

Yesterday’s The Nation included an editorial that claimed to explain the root causes of terrorism and called on the goverment to ‘do more’ to solve the problem. The primary cause of terrorism, according to The Nation, is US foreign policy, including drone attacks. I was especially curious about one item that comes up every time terrorism […]

May 31st, 2010 | By | Category: The Nation

The Nation exploits the Lahore massacre today by using the dreadful event as an opportunity to perpetuate a political agenda that has nothing to do with the actual facts of the case. Its editorial, “Bloodbath at Lahore,” suggests that the root causes of this massacre lie not within our own society, but outside. Of course, […]

May 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Dawn

The Hamid Mir conspiracy case has raised an important issue that deserves some real discussion. The issue is the secret associations that exist within the brotherhood of journalists in Pakistan. Certainly all people have opinions about important issues, and journalists – by the nature of their work – talk to people involved in all sorts […]



Geo's Hamid Mir: Conspiracy Theorist Charged with Conspiracy

May 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Geo TV, Jang

I have been holding off on this story for a while just because I wanted to see if it actually developed into anything.
