Pakistan media slams minister Fawad Chaudhry for 'fake news'
Islamabad: Pakistan media organisations have slammed Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry for claiming that media revenues increased by 600 per cent between 2018 and 2021.
According to a joint statement issued by the media associations on Monday, the ministers claim was "baseless and incorrect" and also a "classic example of fake news".
The Express Tribune quoted the journalists as saying that the statement was a failed attempt to create a divide between media houses and their workers.
"He has only exposed his own ignorance about the matter and also how ill-informed his ministry is," they added.
