Yusuf Raza Gilani Historic Speech – End of Jamaat-e-Islami

leave a comment »

Historic policy speech by Prime Minister of Pakistan, Yusuf Raza Gilani – May 7, 2009.

Well, not much to do with Gilani himself, since he is just handpicked as a mouthpiece for the PPP decisionmakers (President Zardari and others).

TV anchors spin viewer skepticism

TV anchors spin viewer skepticism – Lawyer’s Movement – Mar 16, 2009

ARY TV anchors spin viewers skepticism about the “today is a new day” mentality being pushed by the anchors – Mar 16, 2009.

What are the anchors doing projecting their views on to others – at one point they act smug with some viewers, trying to play one viewer against the other.

If it were not for the multiple TV channels, a few of these TV channels would have wound up dominating public attention – itself a danger to a population which is still to get out of literacy. Were it not for the decision taken during Musharraf’s era to issue loads of licenses, we would have only a few channels who would begin to dominate debate.
