In other news; Geo and ARY were forced to go off air. Apparently uncle Mush talked to his counter part (dictator) in Dubai and asked him a favor that he couldn’t refuse. Now Amir Liaqat has no choice to go back to his original job; that was selling candies at bus stops.
I surprisingly bumped into Aisha Alim few days back. No. not at Zamzama (shpping mall) 😛 but here at wordpress. Yes apparently ex-wife of Brian O’Connor (Rock Star; bassist), single mother of two, morning show hostess and an RJ have a blog as well. Yes she writes! I know most of the male bloggers are under this wrong impression that hot ladies don’t blog or do anything smart, I want to ask you who told you that bloggers or people who run websites are philosophers that have the ability to change the course of the world.
The most popular blog at wordpess is about cats. Yes cats doing funny things. One can witness 100 and more comments under each and every post. Some bloggers out there put huge efforts in their posts. I know a few them and damn they are quite professional. But their efforts are of no news when people prefer a funny cat doing cha-cha-cha on murder of the innocents in Iraq.
Coming back to Aisha Alim, in her post she called Geo-News, Pakistan’s Fox news. According to her the two channels invited the trouble they are in today. Now the lady works at Dawn News that despite its reputation as a prominent news paper of Pakistan is only a toddler in the media world. Both Geo and ARY went through think and thin to get what the baby channels like Dawn News have today ie that thing we call freedom of press 😛
I informed her that this sudden change of behavior of a media person is quite shocking for me, because some days back when her own TV station was facing a ban of a very similar sort she had a very strong stance for freedom of press and media. How the world changed in two days?
Dunno about her but it’s personal for the General now. Uncle Mush is ready to bring anything down that comes between him and his power. He is very well aware of the fact that once the power cord is unplugged out of his body; Uncle Mush is history. All the freedom of speech shit he always use to take credit for was proven wrong when the channels went off air. Period
