The Jang Group – how low the standards would fall?

Apr 13th, 2010 | By | Category: Jang, The News

The following was posted by Mr. Yousuf Nazar at his own blog, State of Pakistan, on Saturday, 10 April 2010. Mr. Nazar makes excellent observations about the increasingly poor so-called ‘reporting’ being published by The News (Jang Group). I am getting quite fed up with the planted, biased, illiterate, and highly unprofessional so-called reporting by […]



Ansar Abbasi's "Truth" Problem

Apr 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: Jang, The News

Just this week I posted about Jang Group’s problem with facts. Now, as if to prove my point, Ansar Abbasi writes an article filled with so many problems and errors that it’s hard to keep them all straight. The article in question appeared in Friday’s issue of The News titled, “SC’s resolve unnerves Presidency; US.” […]



The News Gets Facts Wrong On Character

Mar 1st, 2010 | By | Category: The News

The News today includes an article that claims, “Every constitution requires men of character to qualify as legislators.” While this seems like an unsurprising claim, the article gets several facts wrong. The article, by Sabir Shah, claims that: “…lawmakers in every country of the world are required to have crime-free life history in order to […]



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. Unfortunately, the editorial desk did not read their own newspaper which […]



The Nation's Economic Conspiracy Theory

Feb 3rd, 2010 | By | Category: The Nation

The Nation never fails to impress us with the some of the conspiracy theories that they publish. Today is no different as the editorial writers venture into the world of economics. Unfortunately, rather than ask an economist for advice and explanation, the editorial writers chose to create a conspiracy theory to explain what they do […]



The Nation Report About Obama Speech Belongs On Opinion Page, Should Be Properly Sourced

Jan 28th, 2010 | By | Category: The Nation

Today’s The Nation includes a report by an anonymous person known only as “Special Correspondent” on American President Barack Obama’s speech to the American Congress last night which chastises him for not mentioning Pakistan specifically enough. While it is true that Pakistan was not mentioned by name in the speech, the article is clearly meant […]



Conspiracy Theory Embarrasses Journalists

Jan 25th, 2010 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories

Aside from the many problems that conspiracy theories create at home, it also is a problem that these conspiracy theories make us look particularly silly in the rest of the world. Take, for example, a 23 January article in The New York Times, an American newspaper that is read all over the world. The article […]



The Nation Is Incorrect About How Democracy Works

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

The Nation’s editorial, “A democratic attitude,” says that “the practice almost unexceptionally followed by successful democracies in the world” is for everyone accused of corruption to resign and present themselves to a court. This is not true. French President Nicolas Sarkozy was accused of taking kickbacks from arms dealers when he was a government minister […]



Inconsistency And The Nation's Editorials

Dec 18th, 2009 | By | Category: The Nation

The Nation has taken a contradictory position on US Aid, saying that Pakistan should both refuse all aid and request more aid from the US depending on whether the claim fits The Nation’s immediate political agenda. These contradictory positions demonstrate that the only consistency in the The Nation‘s editorial page is anti-Americanism and anti-government. Today’s […]



Opinion Column on 1971 War Ignores Historical Facts

Dec 16th, 2009 | By | Category: The Nation

The opinion page of The Nation today is a perfect demonstration of the poisoned and fact-averse environment created by conspiracy theorists. In writing about the 1971 war, Tariq Majeed makes the most incredible claim that the entire affair was part of a secret Jewish conspiracy. Much has been written about the history of the 1971 […]
