What We Stand For
To realize public media’s potential, Pakistan Press Club is suggesting creating policies for public media built around the following priorities:
We Support New Public Funding for New Public Media
Surveys show that most Americans consider public broadcasting to be more trustworthy and educational than commercial media.
Yet the United States spends just $1.37 per capita (or per person)
On public broadcasting — 70 times less than Denmark and 20 times less than Germany. Instead of being free to focus on reporting, producing and community building, Public broadcasters are forced to convince Congress every year that they are worthy of the paltry funding they receive. And this funding does not reach much community radio and TV stations or media centers.
The position is same in Pakistan as we can see that some big media giants earning a lot on the name of public & democracy but Pakistani politicians has nothing for real public media which is actually small radio stations or regional news papers , Nevertheless Pakistani media giants are pretty focused in their programs about Pakistani politicians for their money matters, as they wants share!
Nation is looking for a change now!
Nation wants to spend their taxes for real public media!
