May 12th, 2010 | By | Category: The Nation

Yesterday, The Nation suggested the entire Faisal Shahzad case is a ‘set up’ to trap Pakistan, and that we may be facing an ‘imminent attack’ by the Americans. The evidence they present are some statements by American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and American Attorney General Eric Holder. Both statements, which were made during TV […]



It's time to grow up

May 8th, 2010 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories

Okay, this must be the biggest mess of a conspiracy theory I’ve seen in some time. Kamran Khan and Talat Hussain may have been first out of the gate on this one, but it is spreading like a wild fire, and it threatens to burn up any credibility left in our media. Today, Mohammad Jamil […]



Why did Pakistani media boycott Brigadier Hussain Abbas’ funeral?

Feb 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Censorship

Omar Khattab, blogging at Let Us Build Pakistan, asks a good question: Why did Pakistani media boycott Brigadier Hussain Abbas’ funeral? This is an interesting observation and one that makes a point that is often overlooked when we consider bias in our media. There is so much poor reporting, obvious propaganda, and fantastic conspiracy theories […]



On Economy, The Nation Forgot To Read Its Own Report

Feb 17th, 2010 | By | Category: The Nation

The Nation today contains a stark contradiction. The editorial page includes the headline: “Economy not reviving.” The Nation‘s editorial desk then goes on to explain that the economy is not reviving because of  government policies and cooperation with USA in the fight against militants.

Shireen Mazari: Ann Coulter of Pakistan

Dec 25th, 2009 | By | Category: Uncategorized

The coming article about Shireen Mazari is a real eye-opener. “Slander: Meet the Ann Coulter of Pakistan”, paints a quite unflattering picture of a friendless, bitter, paranoid old woman who sees spies and enemies everywhere.  People like this are not uncommon. We see them in markets every day. Shireen Mazari is different, though, because she […]



Taliban Target Press Club in Peshawar

Dec 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: Uncategorized

  Taliban militants have bombed a journalists’ club, killing  three people. This violent attack on media sends a clear signal that jihadi militants are targeting the heart of Pakistan’s civil society. Will right-wing conspiracy-prone talking heads now finally admit that this jihadi war on Pakistan is real? Will Shahid Masood, Shaheen Sehbai, and Ansar Abbasi […]
