ISLAMABAD: A Dawn editorial published Friday says media rivalry and allegations against each other have been hurting repute of the industry; therefore, the battle to damage each other should come to an end.
The fresh controversy among media rivals surfaced after The New York Times published a scam about Axact, a parent company of BOL News Television.
“Incredible, often tawdry, allegations are being bandied about by all sides, further tarnishing the industry as a whole and damaging the credibility of all concerned,” the editorial says.
It also advises Axact and BOL management to respond to the allegations with proofs of being innocent instead of hurling more allegations on the television channels questioning its credibility and source of income to fund BOL.
“Surely, instead of attacking perceived media rivals — it should be noted that the Axact empire is still fundamentally rooted in IT — the company ought to explain its business and financial roots,” the editorial says.
