Media’s role

I was surprised to note that some media personalities were presenting Malik Riaz’s allegations against the chief justice and his son as ‘evidence’. A few anchorpersons even tried to present Riaz’s unsubstantiated claims about the CJ as facts while some talk show hosts were seen openly supporting Riaz’s insinuations.

I am forced to say that the electronic media has dealt with the Malik Riaz in a somewhat imbalanced and biased manner.
