Around a week ago, Dawn ran a story about a proposed amendment in the PEMRA ordinance and what it means for the Pakistani media. Read the story here.
A new media watchdog non-profit, Media Matters for Pakistan, has produced a couple of video programmes on the amendment.
In the first video, Bilal Dar, the secretary-general of the Rawalpindi-Islamabad Union of Journalists, provides the union’s official view on the amendment, and in the second video, journalist Fahad Desmukh and freelance writer Nadia Naviwala comment on the implications of the amendment on press freedom.
