Breaking News: New Presidential Ordinance

New Presidential Ordinance has been enforced from this very moment giving PEMRA powers to suspend license of any channel violating the rules. Suspension for how much duration will be decided by PEMRA authorities. Besides this, PEMRA would have the right to seal down the building & stop the transmition by force. These rules would be applicable on TV, Mobile TV & Internet too. This is a building story – don’t have any access to TV to verify this… if any one can ?

I guess Mushi is going out of the box now for curbing the independence of Media.

    A Great Step. They were taking unfair advantage of all the freedom already. They have been playing with the emotions of the innocent Awam. I feel this would have happened months ago. There is a BBC way of presenting something and there is a FOX way, the one that AAJ and GEO adopted was a more than Fox’s. The case of CJP was never a political which media, political parties and CJP has made it eventually. It was mere case of Corruption which had to be handled in court, only!

    @PTV1-2-World – You cannot set rules for others, and you cannot make rules by labeling FOX way or BBC way of saying things for other.
