Over the last few days, several papers in Pakistan reported that a Taliban organization in North Waziristan
gave a “last warning” to Pakistani media. The story was widely reported, quoting an e-mail message from Muhammad Umar
, a “spokesman for the Taliban Media Center,” the papers said. The group is angry about the way it is being portrayed on Pakistani television. The message, sent to many Pakistani media outlets, asked “Why is the media only conveying the army’s point of view? Is this proof that the media is also working as an ally for the government and the army? Or they are being forced to hide the truth?” according to translations in Pakistani English-language papers.
