Pakistan’s mainstream media loses viewers for ignoring PTI’s Peshawar Jalsa

Pakistan’s mainstream downplayed PTI’s Jalsa in Peshawar which resulted in viewers logging in on the internet instead of TV.

The Jalsa was covered by ARY News, while the rest of the channels did not. Geo News, Hum News, Bol News, Samma News, 92 News, and Neo News are among them.

Shahbaz Gill, the leader of the Insaf, has chastised news stations for failing to broadcast Friday night’s rally in Peshawar.

Gill shared Nayatel’s live viewership data as of 11:35 p.m. on April 13 across 15 cities in a Tweet. According to the data, ARY News received 56.1 percent of the total views among 14 other channels, including Geo News, Samaa News, and Dawn News.

The rally’s media blackout, according to Gill, had an impact on the viewership of these networks.

The Peshawar rally marked the start of a statewide campaign of public protests against Khan’s foreign and internal foes, which Khan has dubbed a “freedom struggle.” He promised to keep the enormous street protests going until the country’s new authorities call for early elections while urging his supporters to remain nonviolent.

Khan’s followers waited for hours on a wide field with a giant stage erected at one end, crowding around excitedly in the dark, waving flags and chanting.
