Whats happened to Pakistan’s television? I know the channels that have multiplied like rabbits constantly need software to stay alive. Does that mean doing things even at the cost of making themselves look and sound desperate?
Imagine for a moment a known journalist who knows politics inside out interviewing Shoaib Mansoor and asking him what were the technical glitches the director experienced while shooting masterpieces like Ankahi or Fifty-Fifty. Wouldn’t that sound asinine?
Now consider this: a morning show anchor a doctor who usually puts questions to health freaks and occasionally kisses snakes
interviewing cricketer Mohsin Khan and chatting with him about the game whose rules and regulations are hard to comprehend even by those who play it. Or a former actress-cum-airhostess-cum-singer striking up a conversation with P.J. Mir and discussing current affairs with him. Doesn’t that sound inappropriate? What’s with our networks? Can’t they find horses for courses? But I ‘m being overly critical. Perhaps there are every few horses and lots of courses. Sorry sirs and ma’ms.
