Exclusive documents on media scandal

pakistani media

Islamabad: Documents in possession of saach.tv reveal that the advertisements given to news channels by Federal and Sindh governments did not follow any logic of ratings nor any principle of transparency in dispensing tax-payers’ money.

The documents corroborate claims that certain channels received advertisement revenue from the government that was disproportionate to their viewership share, raising serious questions about the motives for dolling out arbitrary disbursements.

Dunya TV holds 12% viewership share in the news genre, but 17% advertisements were allocated for it by the government. In rupee terms, this amounted to 360 million.

Likewise, KTN without a known share in viewership got 5% advertisements. This meant 120 million rupees.

City 42, which is a metropolitan channel in PML-N’s stronghold Lahore and is little known out of this town, claims 1% share in viewership, but startlingly received 11% advertisements. In other words, it got 220 million rupees through government advertisements.

Punjab TV, Business Plus, Royal News, and Value TV have no viewership share, but enjoy 5%, 4%, 3%, and 3% share of government advertisement revenue, respectively.

On the flip side, SAMAA and CNBC enjoy 16% viewership share, but only 6% advertisement share.

Two days ago, leader of the opposition in National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan accused the government of paying huge amounts of money from secret funds to certain channels and anchors as part of what he termed ‘pre-poll rigging.’

He also promised to put out more precise details that will substantiate his charge.

But Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira yesterday counter-accused Chaudhry Nisar and alleged that he had maligned the entire media industry, daring him to prove his allegations.

The same position was taken by Pakitsn Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI), which asked the opposition leader to support his claims.

      I think Dunya is more watched then Samma or CNBC
      Especially Azzizi and most of the mad people also used to watch lucman with interest because he supported PTI.

    Let this comment stand if you really stand for “Saach” i.e. truth.

    This is not an exclusive of Saach. This document had been available from the end of July 2012. I had a copy of it. I have actually exposed the details of it in a thread on Siasat.pk website on 27th August in response to an article of Ansar, where many have read and commented on these figures. Obviously Ansar had a copy of it, like many of us.

    http://www.siasat.pk/forum/showthread.php?130249-Chief-Justice-amp-Our-sold-out-media-Ansar-Abbasi

    You are destroying your credibility.

    Let this comment stand if you guys are man enough, my challenge of “Saach” to compete your selective or rather misleading “Saach”.

    Sad indeed, all the Pakistani so called “brave souls” (title of my new article I bet it would never be published by saach.TV) falling on their own swords.

        Don’t accuse me brother. I have credibility far exceeding midgets. For me it was a non event, a routine matter, such cases are plenty in SCP because of the corruption of PPP.

        I only responded on Siasat.pk after seeing the article of Ansar when he failed to mention the names. It is a common practice by Pakistani Journalists they pick up stuff from sources, even from international media and then write like it is exclusive to them.

        This is dishonesty of highest order.

        As for opportunity. Don’t worry about it, I am more than capable to host my own website if it comes to that. For me paying few dollars a month is not a big deal. I just don’t have time to maintain the website. This is the only reason I have not started my own website, though I have my own blogs for years.

        I think time is approaching I should start my own website, ditching such selective “Saachs” forever.

            You are still missing my point and also negating your own arguments. If story is shared by many then why this misleading head line portraying like the document is exclusively available to Saach.TV??
            Yes I understand Journalism well, far better than most if not all Pakistani Journalists. If they were so good, Pakistan wouldn’t be suffering like it is. Pakistan’s suffering is enough evidence on the failure and unprofessionalism of Pakistani media. The best example of what Journalism should not be is the article “Fraudia” by Talat. Who is the Fraudia? Exactly. Those who are incapable of publishing the names of their enemies and nemesis should not teach others values and traits of Journalism. It is a ridiculous argument, which no one in the west would accept. It only happens in Pakistan that everyone writes in riddles. I have to constantly remind Saach.TV that my articles are legally safe, seeing they are mortified from me mentioning names. Who could write articles like “
            The Luckiest Saint” in Pakistani media???????? Don’t even go there mate, Pakistani Journalists are cowards of highest order.

            No I wouldn’t pass blanket comments, I would encourage research based articles against Pakistani Politicians. Everything I have written on this site is legally sound. I have written many times I take responsibilities of what I write. It would be the same on my site, if I ever start it.

            Do you seriously think people like Saad Rafique had guts to sue me? I have forwarded my article on the assets of Sharifs to many many PMLN leaders including the Sharifs. I would love to see them taking legal action against me. I have tried to follow up the comments by PMLN leader Dastagir that Sharifs took injunction against BBC program. I contacted BBC trying to confirm it, BBC lady first said there is no such injunction on their record but later on my request to provide written confirmation, she after consulting declined to say either way.

            Don’t you worry I know what Journalism should be. That’s why I cannot start a website. I cannot do justice with it, because I cannot spare the time needed.

        I even responded in a subsequent post in response to comments by someone explaining it is from AIP. If you read my post it has written figures of the top recipient apart from the grid.

        Ask yourself a question if this is available to SAACH.TV exclusively, how I had the letters for weeks???????????/

          Did saach.tv ever say that these documents are available exclusive to Saach.tv? Even Dr. Shahid Masood has been claiming that he has the documents and Najam Sethi in his program said that he has seen the documents……

          Have you ever watched tv channels when they show their clips with the watermark of exclusive on their images even when the other channel is airing the some content?

          Let me tell you why you are so hyper over this. Because you also had the documents and surely many others had these but only Saach.TV came up with a story on that…..

          And btw what is the problem with the story that you are trying to point out. Were these documents your property that saach has stolen and published them? Give me a break man……

          Saach.TV has always tried to point the issues which are neglected by the mainstream broadcast or print media, publishing Ansar Abbasi’s censored article is another instance…….

          So plz stop blaming Saach.TV because you are pissed that you had these documents but you didn’t get the limelight for holding the dirty secrets of media…..

            Saqib, you are seriously disappointing me now. First of all, I didn’t claim these documents were exclusively available to me. You are misleading the readers by giving such heading “Exclusive Documents on Media scandal” like they are exclusive to “Saach.TV”.

            You shouldn’t blame your misleading readers at others. Days before today when put this claim on the website, I pointed it on the forum these figures are from AIP presentation to SCP. I am responsible and honest, I would never indulge in such cheap tricks. Also, you should know if you are part of management here, I forwarded my article this morning, criticising both Talat and Ansar to write riddles on this topic while Pakistan faces serious troubles.

            We know Talat spat with Sethi for months, so why Talat doesn’t have courage to tell us who is the “Fraudia” in his column!!!

            It was you who wrote an article full of riddles about a Journalist buying an apartment in Canada???

            Do you know how much trouble I went through to find out the facts and ownership of the apartment from Canada because you gave wrong and incomplete information on its address. I have plenty of proofs to prove my efforts.

            I am seriously disappointed from low standards of Pakistani Journalists. Shame

        • I have read your views on Pakistani journalism and the community associated herewith. AND I have followed your recent thread on siasat pk as well, what I might be able to suggest you is (which you wont approve for sure for it would call your bluff on the claims and standards) why not interview Altaf Hussain the way YOU wanted it to be done, like the one you have shared on siasat and upload it to youtube. Not only the journalists but also a major chunk of Pakistani community would be making you a journalism god afterwards and it would be a put up call for you and shut up call for those calling your ego. Otherwise, it would be a put up call for the ego pointers and shut up call for you. You already are living in UK and conducting the interview of AH in the standards you set would be an excellent idea to counter all the selective saach and works otherwise known as riddles by you.

            Don’t you think you are making my point exactly? You admit then Taalat and likes didn’t have the “balls” to interview AH the way he should be?????????/lolzzzzzzzzzzz

            Shall I ask you in the bargain, how much does Talat and likes get paid for doing abysmal jobs?

            Why would they be handsomely rewarded for doing lousy jobs and not giving the truth to Pakistani nation, doing their prime responsibilities?

            You guys are wasting your energies, I am correct 100% that’s why I write so many articles against Pakistani Journalists, who are useless beyond shadow of a doubt.

            They are more interested in earning more and more by switching their jobs, never satisfied from millions of rupees they get every month.

      @ Wajid Ali Khan: Firstly You seem to be adherent of egoism! Just come out of your egocentric thoughts to debate honestly!

      You are in need of this! Your comments reflect this!

      Your problem is that you published this material on Siasat.pk and no one strongly noticed it or bothered!

      Now that Sacch.Tv published it and people are taking notice so you aren’t digesting this thing!

      If you had these documents then why didn’t you come up with a strong, influential story on them?????

      Come On!!!

      You surely had the documents like many other people but honestly tell how many came up with a story on it?

      You can’t question on any news or story as “Being exclusive” of any channel because it rarely happens that only one person is aware of the story; infact, many people know story but its all about “Being courageous” i.e. who breaks the story on its channel

      You are suffering from hypertension. I tell you why your BP is shooting high because you didn’t get a chance to put these documents as a strong breaking story!

      You are also confused about the word Exclusive!

      Let me tell you what it actually means: Exclusive means An item or story published by only one source!!!

      If you were a journalist you would have familiar with the definition of Exclusive!

      Sacch.Tv mentioned “Exclusive “for this story; it clearly shows that it would have been revealed by its own source!

      Werna Sacch.Tv exclusive kyun likhta????

      Your comments that your article wasn’t published lead to this propaganda!

      Now stop your propaganda! Stop throwing out your inner grudge just because your article wasn’t published [I read your comments]

      Sacch.Tv provided you with a platform to share your views and you are accusing it in return!

      Come on!!!

      This is hell of Ungratefulness [and now your narrow mindedness will also take wrong interpretation of this]

      And you have written in your comments that you have no time to maintain and open your website and at the same time you saying that you have blogs for years!

      You have time for doing all this [what you doing here] but no time for your own self ?????

      You should have instead opened your own website and put your energy to make it successful! [If you really want to compete and prove yourself right]

      Last but not the least Sacch.Tv has credibility because people think that it’s the website of Syed Talat Hussain!

      Where you stand in all this???

      People don’t even know you!!!

      And stop your propaganda; these are just cheap tactics to get fame!!!

      Now clap for yourself!!!

        @Sabeen, I will ignore personal attacks in your comments. I don’t expect anything else from Pakistanis when they have no arguments to present.

        I put up the grid and info after Ansar wrote an article, the thread was opened by someone not me. At that time this info or article by Talat was nowhere. So don’t take it as an attack on Saach or Talat. I am merely pointing to the bad practices of Pakistani media which are unknown in the West.
        If I was eager to earn brownie points like you suggesting I could have written about it long time ago, I had the copy of letter for week,it is available for download from TIP website, you can download it too.

        After this information, what is your opinion about people who write headline “Exclusive documents”? Exclusive to whom exactly?
        So who is suffering from ego problem? Those with “Sarias” in their necks looking down on people? Or those who are down to earth and want truth to prevail.

        Saach favours were mutual, I offer something which no other Journalist in Pakistan offer. no nonsense straight forward articles with names included. Not cowardly stuff I read every day in Pakistani media.

        Unless Pakistanis change their thinking Pakistan is doomed. After losing half of their country Pakistanis have not learned their lessons. They are still writing and supporting same old nonsense.

            You don’t know the story so don’t pass judgement. After Saach.TV refusal to publish my article “Illiterate scholars” I still forwarded another article. But Off course I provided them guarantee that my article is legal safe and I take responsibilities. They came back and said they didn’t say they cannot publish, but not at the moment.
            One thing was certain for me from the onset for them handling the truth or “Saach” is not possible. I on the other hand have nothing to do with the bad practices of Pakistani journalists and wouldn’t change my style.
            Therefore, I decided to look pastures new after one article more article on saach. My last 3 articles were all published at the Newstribes. I didn’t forward those articles to saach. The Newstribe even published “Illiterate Scholars” which so-callled saach was sweating about.

            I purposefully forwarded this article to Saach.tv to check their courage, with comments that it is their test if they could tolerate and publish criticism of Talat.
            I knew v well they wouldn’t publish my article therefore I forwarded the article to The Newstribes immediately after I wrote it, because I knew it would be published immediately by them.

            I only forwarded it to Saach.TV in the morning to test them, and guess what they failed the test. instead they put this misleading and false headline in a hurry.

            You are absolutely wrong to say my responses would have been different if they publish my article. I knew very well they wouldn’t before I forwarded it to them.

            The proof that my article was already published in the morning by Newstribes before this abysmal piece was written by Saach is enough to show that I already took the steps for it to be published. I have many places where I can publish my work, I am certainly not dependent on Saach.

            I always criticise Pakistanis not Pakistan. I hope you understand the difference. Off course I have to crticise Pakistanis they are the one who are destroying the name of Pakistan everyday in the world.

          Sadly for you, many have read my post on Siasat.pk with the grid, 3 days before Saach deceptively declared it as “Exclusive document”.

          Exclusive when it is available for download for weeks? Do you want me to laugh?

          As for Shahid Masood, I have absolutely no respect for him. I asked him some questions on his stay in the UK, he blocked my other twitter account instead of answering. He has no credibility in my eyes, if he can be called a Journalist.

    So Mr. Talat Hussain is it a news ?

    This is routine practice where government gives advertisement to thoes who are not that negative against them.

    In order to beat each other, now the journalist are throwing mud at each other. What a pitty !

    Mr. Talat Hussain you have dissappointed me.

    I completely disagree with the above report. Just visit Internal Sindh and every second household know the name of KTN and also Punjab, Rohri and Sohni Dharti tv are very famous in villages of Punjab Similarly AVT Khyber is very famous in KPK. The criteria of ratings is only assessed based on Urban Urdu Media population without taking into account that most of the population still lives in villages and speak Local languages and watch local programs.
    Giving zero ratings for KTN, SIndhi tv, Punjab TV, AVT Khyber and Sohni Dharti tells us the Inherit Hatred of Urdu Mafia media against channels of local languages and their revenue generation.

    @ Wajid Ali Khan you might have a pile of information but its the matter of acessibilty . Masses have better access to information provided by Talat hussain while there are no copy right rules of such documents in Pakistan ..and @Hasan Awan yes local channels are watched in Rular Areas but people setting the standards live in Cities hence the ratings.

    We know Talat spat with Sethi for months, so why Talat doesn’t have courage to tell us who is the “Fraudia” in his column!!!
    As if you do not know who he was referring to in the column. Have you ever heard of lawsuits and defamation? These lawsuits drain a lot of energy and also a lot of money, so why going that road when you can deliver your message effectively and intelligently. Wake up!

    “It was you who wrote an article full of riddles about a Journalist buying an apartment in Canada???”
    Who? Me or Talat?

    “Do you know how much trouble I went through to find out the facts and ownership of the apartment from Canada because you gave wrong and incomplete information on its address. I have plenty of proofs to prove my efforts.”
    So you are pissed at your hard work?

    “I am seriously disappointed from low standards of Pakistani Journalists. Shame”
    Seriously this is insane.

      So you understand and accept that Talat doesn’t have balls to write straight forward names of those he is addressing in his articles, because he is worried about defamation and law suits?

      Thank you for making my point. I know all about lawsuits and defamation that’s why every time I forwarded articles like “luckiest saint” or one against Ishaq Dar I gave assurances to Saach.TV that I take legal responsibilities of my material.

      You should ask yourself who is the true and brave Journalist? The one who write riddles because he is scared or one who write boldly and daring people to take legal actions if they have courage?

      I have a news for you, I can easily win, without shadow of any doubts. Do you know my education and experience?

      The article I referred to was also written by someone on this website, it wasn’t Talat. I couldn’t remember the name. That’s why I asked you the question. It has wrong information about the address of the property.
      It shows that the unprofessional practices are well spread on this website.

      Makes my point exactly.

          Do you want me to laugh?
          Also tell me how much Talat get paid every month for doing an abysmal job and not disclosing the facts about MQM to the nation?

          Don’t you think each time he interviews MQM leaders and don’t ask the questions he should, he is betraying his profession and Pakistani nation, he doesn’t deserve to be paid handsomely for doing an abysmal job?

          Why wouldn’t you ask Talat to have balls and interview AH? Who is getting paid millions me or him?

            @ Wajid Ali Khan: For your very kind information When Talat Hussain went to UK he invited MQM Leader Altaf Hussain but he denied giving interview to Talat Hussain!

            I have seen nearly all the programs of Talat Hussain till date \

            and I can very firmly say that

            Talat Hussain is the only journalist that is extra ordinary tsrict with MQM members he invites to his programs!

            MQM ka leader Altaf Hussain ko achi tarhan pata ha kay uske dhajiyaan urain gee thats why he never says “YES” to give interview to Talat Hussain!

            Again its your personal grudge!

            Just tell me if your article would have been published at Saach.Tv then even then you would have reacted this way??????

            You would never !

            Sirf article publish naa honay per itna gusa and revengefulness!!!

            pathetic behavior!!!

            and yes I really wanna ask you that:

            When Meher Bukhari and Bashir Luqman’s media scandal related to malik riaz emerged then why didnt you write nay blog on that???

            Talat Hussain kay peechay per gaye ho un kay peechay kyun nahi perhay thay kay they had done wrong etc

            and I have read your all articles till date on Saac.Tv just tell me you are only criticizing PML-N in your all articles??? why so???

            you never targetted any other party???

            And yes you are hypocrite!!!

            Your hypocricy has been proved: Article nahi publish hua tu rang badal lia and you doing all this !!!

            Jab tak articles publish hota thay tab Talat Hussain bhee acha tha Saach.Tv bhee acah tha

            and in above comment you also targetting pay area of Talat Hussain

            why you doing this??? Its shows ur inferiority complex!!!

            He is the Journalist who commands most high respect in his profession!!!

            well-respected and well-reputed!!!

    If Dunya or any other Channel is paying tax according to their income, Its seem perfectly all right to me. You must ask govt. not Media channel abt the ads. Tell me anyone of us who don’t like to have business.

    In this program who is introduced on Express TV commented that those who put guns on the head of people that such and such programs have to be broadcast should also be exposed.

    Unfortunately, he conveniently forget to tell to the nation who exactly point the guns at the media people to provide them the coverage????????/

  33. All nations history tells us go through crisis be they the humble Pakistan, or be it the mighty superpower. Each government seeks a captive audience, and the quid pro quo is fairly easy to see that result oriented news groups get hold of significant pie, as do the none existent, for Pakistan is the only nation in the world wherein the Chief Minister of the State was responding to an question as thus: fake degree, or earned degree, what is the difference both are degrees. If media does not wake up to the harm its causing the nation than the 4th estate should be audited by a third none interested party that must inform the ideology and opportunities used by the Anchors who often are nothing but senseless talking heads. There are very few in Pakistan that care, thus Talat is special and a dying breed unless a code of conduct can be created wherein the owners have no say so in editorial or content management they will sell their integrity for most sans that is the way of life. But how do we explain the urgency to a nation falling off the cliff as Jews were during the period of the states of Judah and Israel or before the lost of first temple when Prophets advised them to not join any party or war, they did not listen and were carried into Bleak Babylonian Slavery where they sat and cried in memory of Zion, but 10 tribes were lost forever.
