Reality Check.

In an interview on Geo News aired a few minutes ago, Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf says he would like the media to be ‘realistic’. What is reality, I ask? Is it unrealistic to say that journalists are harassed in this country on a disturbingly frequent basis, that news channels are not allowed to cover events in Baluchistan or send in camera crews to the tribal areas? Is it unrealistic to say that journalists were beaten and tear gassed on Saturday in Islamabad? Or is the ISPR-approved reality the only form of reality we should believe in?

Really Mr. President, do you think we’re all THAT gullible?
