Najam Sethi, Pakistani journalist

Apas ki Baat

The following are a few links to Najam Sethi's daily political talk show "Apas ki baat", in Urdu on GEO News, a mainstream TV news channel from Pakistan owned by the Jang Group.

His shows are an enticing mixture of irreverance, cool headed analysis (often contrarian to popular narratives), interesting political gossip, bold and provocative without ever being offensive.

I am yet to come across an equivalent of this in the much touted "free" main stream Indian media, which excels in screaming tabloid journalism but is complicit with the state's narrative on many important issues......
