The Media and Pakistan

It is heartening to read a piece like this from someone in the West.

Sportsfreak, the sports blogger from New Zealand discusses how the media there has projected the recent Marriott bombing in Pakistan.

Meda projections have hurt Pakistan more than any security report and this is yet another example.

Sportsfreak - thank you for your views.

    J,

    West of communism and east of a shit-hole.

    There's some old Kiwi joke along those lines, but I can't quite remember how it goes...

    Media would say whats on the ground. they wont go n say whats not happening. The basic pretext is that the security situation in Pakistan is horrible and if ex-PM or PM is not safe then who r bloody cricketers.

    Accept the reality Q, rt now cricket cannot be played in Pak.

    Buzzz I feel u need to be a bit more open minded and accept the reality more than me.

    The point of this post was to show how the media projects Pakistan. Even the people in New Zealand realise that so it makes me sad to think that my neighbor doesn't.

    Cricket can be played in Pakistan. India was there 3 months ago and will be there in another 3 months again.

    South Afria was there last year.

    Our domestic cricket is going on.. everyones lives are going as they have always been..

    Im not saying the country is trouble free - I know whats wrong and its sad to see Pakistan like that.. BUT it is not unsafe for a cricket match.

    There was a reason why Pindi was taken off the schedule for the Champs trophy..

    Btw, another bomb went of in Delhi today..
