PML-N and Geo are identical, says Mazari
ISLAMABAD: Leader Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Shireen Mazari said government was weakening the state institutions by supporting a media house, ARY News reported Thursday.
Addressing a press conference, Ms Mazari said Geo and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz were identical.
She said Geo had become a media cell of the PML-N.
The PTI leader said Geo must seek an apology from the nation.
She dispelled an impression that PTI was provided extra-ordinary coverage during the general elections on May 11 last year.
Geo TV has been under-fire since its accused Pakistan defence institutions without any proofs in connection to attack on journalist Hamid Mir on April 19, last month. The Geo News aired picture of DG ISI for consecutive eight hours, alleging him of his involvement in Mir's attack. Geo, so far, could not provide any proof to substantiate its allegations.
In yet another blunder, Geo Entertainment ran manqabat (religious poetry) in its morning show, hosted by Shahista Lodhi, during reenactment of Veena Malik's wedding. Airing of such a blasphemous content drew strong wrath of different segments of society.
