Pakistan Electronic Media Regulation Authority has issued fresh directives to warn all the satellite TV channels of legal action for either running a “propaganda” campaign or spreading “misinformation and disinformation” against the state institutions.

According to PEMRA, a trend has been observed on satellite TV channels wherein some of their anchors are indulged in spreading misinformation and disinformation against the state institutions.

It said that such trend on channels is tantamount to casting aspersions against state institutions as well as a planned propaganda campaign against the state institutions.
