Opinion of the Media Commission about Print and Electronic Media
in Category General
The Commission is of the opinion that both print media and electronic media individually and through their representative bodies, as also advertisers need to conduct sober, self-critical introspection to review, reform and renew their respective roles and responsibilities.
At the same time, both Federal and Provincial Legislatures, and Federal and Provincial Governments need to conduct a comprehensive review of media-related legislation, policies and rules to remove defects and to update them to contemporary conditions as also to prepare for a rapidly changing future.
In the succeeding Section of this Report, the Commission has identified specific areas and precise measures that could be taken into consideration by legislatures, governments, media, the judiciary and civil society.
