I have always been proud of Pakistan's media until i actually went to Pakistan. It was quite depressing when people around me chose to rely on rumors because their media failed to inform them about an issue. The 'aam' [regular] people have no clue about the past and doings of their current or past leaders except for the major events. The same nation that Benazir Bhutto ripped off respects her more than any other leader living in Pakistan [that's the only reason why Zardari is President] because the media failed to inform the public about the helicopter case or when she and her husband embezzled as much as US$1.5 billion from government accounts. In a nation where corrupt leaders like Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif are looked upon as heroes, there has to be something wrong with the information it's public is getting.
