Yesterday we wrote about the two-faced reporting on Osama bin Laden coming from Jang Group‘s newspapers.

Ansar Abbasi's Bizarre Performance on Dunya Today

Dec 9th, 2010 | By | Category: Uncategorized

Ansar Abbasi appeared on yesterday’s episode of Dunya Today to discuss Wikileaks. What could have been an informative and productive discussion of an important event in both national and foreign policy turned into something of a circus, though, as Ansar Abbasi began reciting conspiracy theories instead of actual facts. And from there, his performance only […]

Dec 4th, 2010 | By | Category: Dawn News TV

Talat Hussain, a man who has (or should I say had) a reputation for being at least bearable among the insufferable lot of TV anchors, has done it again. The anchor, on his struggling-for-rating program “News Night with Talat” recently attacked Husain Haqqani, ambassador of Pakistan to US questioning the ambassador’s loyalty and motives. He […]

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.
