Watching Geo is painful, seriously.
Try and watch an episode of Nadia Khan Show and you will know how painful it is. All she can talk (read gossip) about is whether Ashwariya Rai is pregnant or if Salman Khan has roughed up his girl friend – yet again, or the latest affair between any two starlets. The other day, I saw a news clip showing some Mumbai wedding attended by the likes of Rani Mukherji, Amir Khan and some other lesser bollywood personalities (They might not be that lesser but I don’t know their names).
This is not all, the other day after the bomb blast in Darra Adam Khel, the newscaster asked the reporter if there are any more deaths and his exact words were, “apkay khiyal main aur kitnee amwaat hue hain?” when the reporter said they have just taken 20 people inside the hospital, the newscaster said, “yani ke mazeed 20 amwat ka khadsha hai.” (that 20 more people may die.)
Pakistani news media is all about sensationalism and news creation these days. Gone are they days when news was properly screened and people would focus on reporting the events as they unfold rather than looking for sensational little bits and creating news for increased viewer ship. Now, its all about ratings and getting multinational sponsorship for the news, just rake in the moolah, authenticity and integrity be damned
