ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) Wednesday advised all satellite television channels to avoid airing fake news.
The advisory came after some channels aired false news about the killing of Indian soldiers at the India-China border on July 17.
“Airing of such content is in violation of several clauses of PEMRA Ordinance 2002 as amended by the PEMRA (Amendment) Act 2007 and Electronic Media Code of Conduct 2015,” the regulator said in a media release.
It advised all satellite channels to adhere to the code of conduct and avoid airing fake news picked from the social media in order to hold the basic professional standard and their credibility.
