While countering Isar Rana’s argument, Latif Chaudhry said that being a journalist is not a hard job. He commented that it was only media, which created awareness on various issues, even it was Panama leaks case, or some other. He hoped that things would be much better in the near future. Speaking on the Topic, Brigadeer Farooq said that except few elements which were working on payrolls of different agencies, media has always spread the positive image of the country. He was of the view that things had started deviating after 9/11 incident, when Pakistan was forced to involve in war on terror. But still in these crises, media had always tried to portray the positive image of the country. Whenever something went wrong either from the government side or the establishment, it had always raised that issue and brought in front of the public.

He was of the view that this thing happened because the producers did not know who Mukhtar Masood was? He said that a reporter should have command on every subject.
