Cartoon By Afraid Canvas: Censorship In The Name Of Following Media Ethics

Type to search

BBC recently published a report on secret human rights abuses in Pakistan over which the government and the state institutions were incensed. Their supporters were angry over the report as they accused the British Broadcasting Corporation of conspiring against Pakistan. Some media persons were also seen fuming against the British network for ‘tarnishing Pakistan’s image’ and maligning its state institutions. Certain media anchors did programmes against BBC’s ‘biased’ reporting and others conducted talk shows with no BBC representatives on the panel to defend them. Almost entire Pakistani media has embraced self-censorship like a norm. Foreign media, however, still operates with a certain level of freedom in the country. The idea is to discredit the foreign media in the eyes of the general public.
