Pakistan Electronic Media Regulation Authority (Pemra) has issued new directives, warning all satellite TV channels regarding legal action for either running a propaganda campaign or spreading misinformation and disinformation against state institutions.

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

In its directive, the media-regulatory body highlighted that “such a trend on TV channels is tantamount to casting aspersions against state institutions and is a planned propaganda campaign against them.”

It has termed the airing of such content a “violation” of the directives, as issued by Pemra.
