Dr Shireen Mazari, Central Information Secretary PTI, today drew attention of the media to the Executive Summary of the Media Commission Report – the Commission having been formed by the SC – and pointed out the Geo-Doordarshan connection of Amn ki Asha programme mentioned on page 8 of the Summary. She said the government had tried to have this section deleted but could still be found on the site link http://j.mp/1kkyvvM.
She said this raised serious issues of foreign agendas being pursued by the Geo/Jang gp which the government should take notice of and investigate rather than trying to cover up the whole issue.
This is just one of the many sources of questionable foreign funding coming to the Geo/Jang media house.
Mazari also showed the chart of Media Usage graph published by EU Report showing the excessive time given to PMLN by Geo and PTV.
