Geo tou Aisay!

Amid jubilation from a large number of pakistani households (mine included) Geo News has resumed transmissions across Pakistan from 6 PM on Monday, by the order of President Pervaiz Musharraf (their first words on the air, not mine).

The News says

A large number of people from different walks of life have termed it the restoration of democracy in the country. They said media freedom would play its role in ensuring free and fair general elections in the country

Now that the media (no blocked news channels) is ‘free’ again do you agree with the above statement?

    Sad? LOL!! Whyee ? You dont have to believe everything they tell you. Hey extra channel….whats wrong with that?
    Sad for those who are gullible and believe everything they hear without using their own head(personal analysis).
    Positive competition is good ,makes you grow.

    Geo is restored minus Hamid Mir (capital talk) and Shahid Masood (Qayamut Baba). These two should be banned for life to appear on the TV. Media is better with out them.

    Hats off to Mush for taching a lesson to Geo and Jang that it can not destablise the government any more on the name of press freedome.

    Bhai MB Sahib, you mentioned all the Generals but forgot to mention all the other crooks like the Bhuttos and Nawaz who raped Pakistan for many years and yet we want them back, are we so blind to see the truth about these people…..

    KABIR DAS the message was, “Hold on buddy, lets take a breather, there is a war going on, there are strong forces who want to destabilize this country, don’t become a tool for them, don’t become a instrument to spread panic and conspiracy theories and don’t make heroes out of terrorists”

    As for criticism of the President and the Government, I see it all the time on all the channels even on PTV, that never stopped and nobody is stopping it now.

    Life was so peaceful without geo. no sensationalism, no self-indulgent news, no country bashing, no neon-colour filled screens. sigh.

    @JMA
    For how long you have been reading my posts/comments dude. You want me to list hundred of lines here so you can read how much (and equally) i spit out poison against politicians over internet??

    I mentions generals specifically because we dont expect them to be BAD. They were suppose to be the defender of this nation & they are doing exactly opposite.

    In any case, even if you dont find my -ve comment about politicians in my writings, assume it BY-DEFAULT.

    Oh man geo sucks. In the beginning they were really good but now its breaking news every millisecond. Anytime a hotshot politician sneezes, a breaking news pops up on geo. They even show what type of tissue is being used by the hotshot politician on the breaking new ticker.
