Letter: Double Standards Of Media

Omaar Baloch

The word rude might not be the accurate word I should use childish or immature behavior in order to express the attitude of our media. It is a bitter fact that our media focuses on the news that the viewers find entertaining rather than pointing out the issues that really affect the common man.

Our media gives full coverage to Sit-ins but discards critical issues of Balochistan. No doubt Peshawar attack is a black day for Pakistan but we can’t deliberately cease thinking of the one’s dying of hunger in Thar. It is high time for our media to pay attention to the people of Thar and Balochistan. I wish it happens before the people of Balochistan and Thar become rebels against this attitude.
