SA Tribune Hacked

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2005/11/SA-Tribune-hack-thumb.jpgIf you have a look at the domain www.satribune.com which usually hosts the ever controversial South Asia Tribune is presently being forwarded to PakistanPapers.com as I write this story. The domain still exists as one of my old stories on Jahil Online still refers to the archive pages of SA Tribune hence surely indicating that the domain exists but the homepage has been hacked (or deliberatley being redirected) to the Pakistan Papers website.

So did SA Tribune finally get a taste of its own medicine?

    Actually, they announced last month that they were shutting down, so I dont think they were hacked..

    The ‘South Asia Tribune’ was excellent newspaper exposing the corruption in Pakistan. It is a sad day for democracy, free press, and Pakistan that this online newspaper has shutdown. Hopefully
    ‘South Asia Tribune’ may have produced enough fans that will take upon themselves to create new websites to expose corruption in Pakistan. The ‘South Asia Tribune’ will be remembered and will remain a beacon for Pakistani journalism.
