Zardari gags media

Pakistan’s most widely watched news channel, GEO News , has been taken off the air by the Zardari Government.


GEO News has been giving minute by minute updates of the Long March – a march organised to reinstate the Chief Justice, Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudry. The last time GEO was taken off air was when the previous dictator, General Pervez Musharraf, oredered it to be shut down when he initially deposed Chief Justice Chaudry in 2007.


When all else fails why not gag the media? Funny how history just keeps on repeating itself.
