Hamid Mir and lying journalists – Najam Sethi

with 5 comments

Najam Sethi skewers Hamid Mir, Ansar Abbasi and possibly Talat Hussain for deliberate lying on Baitullah Mehsud’s involvement.

He states that while there existed evidence to the contrary, these anchors deliberately aired programs after Benazir Bhutto’s assassination which aimed to absolve him from the murder.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry upholds Doctine of Necessity

leave a comment »

After all the talk of the evils of “Doctrine of Necessity”, and how this “new Supreme Court” will do something new, we have the Supreme Court decision under Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry endorsing the “Doctrine of Necessity”.

Using it to justify the actions that were taken by Musharraf – except that it is chastising him for doing an extra-constitutional step (when Musharraf instituted Emergency), a step that Musharraf himself acknowledged was extra-constitutional in interviews.

Musharraf interview – Mahreen Khan

leave a comment »

Mahreen Khan interviews Musharraf in London on the questions of the day – those accusations being flung in desperation by such “journalists” as Talat Hussain, Hamid Mir, Ansar Abbasi, Dr. Shahid Masood, and the even more “jahil” anchors like the “Bolta Pakistan” folks on AAJ TV (one of them didn’t even know who Pinochet was – which he should have had as a journalist commenting on foreign and world affairs).

Media love affair with Taliban ends – End of Jamaat-e-Islami – Media, Musharraf, Mossadeg

with one comment

After years of challenging Musharraf (Dr. Shahid Masood, Hamid Mir and Ansar Abbasi at Geo TV, or Talat Hussain of AAJ TV who wanted “writ of government” in Lal Masjid but then turned to criticizing the government immediately after) and forgiving all actions of the Taliban as “radd-e-amal”.

Using the innocuous sounding “Taliban” (i.e. “student”) when the better name would have been “fitna” or “Khariji” (who rose against Muslims and who Hazrat Ali had to put down).

Not highlighting the foreign funding and interests of the Taliban.

These channels instead perpetuated that “hundreds of women and children were killed in Lal Masjid operation”. Which has turned out to be false.

When Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer repeats that falsehood, no anchor stops him and corrects him.

Why ? What is the role of anchors in talk shows ?

Is a presentation of facts and separating the truth from the chaff not part of the role of media – i.e. to INFORM. Not to disinform.
