The quest of some media channels against the government continues and perhaps there is more to come. For the past few weeks, we are observing some TV channels and newspapers lobbying against the government. The anti-government tirade continues unabated and is now reaching serious proportions. Some of the channels tried to create a false hype about October 13 as the day of reckoning. Somehow, the two core institutions of the state i.e. the judiciary and the executive are purposely being pushed into a fight, which in reality is not as serious as shown by the media. The complexity of problems (floods and economy) is enough to create a hard time for the government, but I believe all the efforts to derail the democratic process would not succeed. People are more aware than ever and they want the media to be more responsible apart from being free and independent. ZULFIQAR HAIDER, Islamabad, October 13.
