ISLAMABAD – Electronic media regulator PEMRA on Friday served show-cause notices on 22 television channels for their marathon and irresponsible coverage of a terrorist attack on the Chinese consulate in Karachi.
The regulator did not name the channels but said such extensive coverage was a violation of its rules and the electronic media code of conduct 2015.
PEMRA said that on several occasions in the past it had directed the television channels to be careful in covering terror-related incidents because they create fear among the public.
The channels have seven days to explain their positions.
