Pakistani Media fails to Report
Pakistani media can’t help but be at the front row of every big news. Whether it be a blast or another political scandal, the media channels are on their toes to document it all. However, when it comes to sports, Pakistani media pays significant attention to cricket only.
The Pakistani boxer Muhammad Waseem brought such a big win home; however, the media paid no heed to his achievements. Not even one channel reported about the WBC Silver World Title winner. Several people are disappointed at Pakistani media’s ignorant behavior.
