Media in Pakistan
The arrival of private TV channels, news websites and private print publications has certainly broken the monotony of few government dominated media channels, the sole means of information available to the public of the country a decade ago. Nonetheless, the goal of maintaining a free media still remains an ideal yet to attain, as the Musharraf government imposed its own biases on certain ethnic population of the country especially in Baluchistan. This dictatorial policy has not only thwarted the coverage of problems related to the troubled regions but also violated the basic human right to present human problems in one’s own society. At the present moment journalists all over the country need to get more organized and strive together as a single body for freedom of speech against authoritative oppression.
