Balanced coverage of political activities by Pakistani media
We, the petitioners, have observed, over the course of time, that PTI rallies and especially the ones lead by Imran Khan are not given the due coverage on your channels. Whereas you break away from your regular transmission to cover rallies organized by other parties and telecast the entire speeches by their leaders live, the same treatment is not meted out to Imran Khan's speeches. This disparity is very difficult for us to understand and very disturbing to say the least. We are the biggest proponents of free media in Pakistan and would defend it at any cost. What we would like to see is that the media channels cover all political views and different shades of opinions evenly and unbiasedly. PTI lead by Imran Khan is an important part of political fabric of our nation. The acceptance or rejection of its ideology or message should be left to the people of Pakistan. What is expected out of you is fair and balanced coverage of all political events. So, we urge you that PTI rallies should be covered in the same manner as you do other political parties rallies.
Also, second and third tiered leadership of PTI should be invited to the talk shows just like you do for the other political parties. These are people with fresh ideas and filled with passion to bring about positive changes in our society. We strongly believe that Pakistani people, who are tired of age old political gimmickry , rhetoric and perpetual cycles of deception and corruption by so called 'seasoned' politicians , would welcome these refreshing voices and new ideas.
