Topic: Mediagate Scandal, Mehdi Hasan’s Death and Eric Schmidt’s visit to Islamabad
Description: A lot has happened in this week, for instance the Mediagate Scandal that still has left many jaws opened and people disappointed. Do you think the list that has appeared with the names of anchorpersons who’ve taken money and other things from Riaz Malik is true? Is the mainstream media trustworthy?
Also, Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman and ex-CEO of Google paid a visit to Pakistan recently, and met the Prime Minister. According to the news, PM Gilani has asked an aid of ten million dollars from Google to set up IT centers in Pakistan to track the Afghan border joined with Pakistan. What would you have to say about that?
Awab and Faisal along with Shirin Gul discuss these issues and also take on the frequent making of fake accounts on social media websites and how easy it has become for people to hide behind a screen and say whatever they wish to.
