A U-turn by PTI: Boycott of Geo/Jang group over ‘biased coverage’

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to once again boycott Geo and Jang media groups owing to their “biased and one-sided” coverage in the ongoing Panama Papers case.

In a statement on Saturday, the party said it will withdraw its representation from all forums run by the group.

The PTI had boycotted the media group in 2014 as well over its alleged role in electoral rigging during the 2013 general elections.

The PTI chief said it is not the responsibility of a media house to protect corruption and money laundering of a family for its personal financial interests. “It is unbecoming of any media organisation to provide support to the rulers being probed”

“Now even ordinary citizens are aware of the fact that Jang/Geo group is lying to the nation and distorting facts. Portraying Nawaz Sharif like a ‘beau ideal’ political figure is a crying shame,” Imran said.
