When asked about an uptick in recent years of journalists complaining about harassment and intimidation by Pakistani security forces, Khan said, "I can honestly say that no democracy would allow this sort of thing that's going on." Khan also accused media organizations of publishing libelous stories about him and his cabinet members without facing any consequences. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday had strong words for the Pakistani media, accusing journalists of penning libelous stories and anti-democratic propaganda in the name of news coverage. When asked at the World Economic Forum about the uptick in recent years of journalists complaining about harassment and intimidation by Pakistani security forces, Khan said, "I can honestly say that no democracy would allow this sort of thing that's going on." At first, he acknowledged that criticism plays a vital role in democracy, saying: "There's nothing better than criticism. Criticism is … the difference between a democracy and a dictatorship; [it's] why democracies forge ahead of dictatorships." But then Khan also seemed to take offense at the media's view of Pakistan's government. "You would not know democracy would be facing that sort of criticism," he added. Media censorship has long been an issue in Pakistan.  Former talk show host Talat Hussain told The Guardian in 2019 that he was forced to comply with state policy that prohibited openly criticizing the government and the military.  "I was told that any suggestion that the 2018 elections were rigged or that the army was part of the running of the government by Imran Khan was unacceptable," he said.  In 2018, journalist Cyril Almeida was charged with treason after he conducted an interview with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in which Sharif intimated that Pakistan might have been involved in the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks.  In July 2019, a report about Pakistani journalists protesting media censorship was, ironically, pulled from a news broadcast. Later that year, Khan's government introduced special "tribunals" to hear cases against the media. Press advocates said the move was an effort to intimidate Pakistani journalists. Khan, though, defended his crackdown, comparing what he saw as Pakistan's lax press rules with stricter UK laws. Libelous stories, such as those about him being engaged in illegal activities or his cabinet members not paying taxes, would never be permitted elsewhere, he said. "[The UK's] libel laws are such that no one can get away with someone on the television saying, 'I've just heard the prime minister's wife has left him.' If you say that in England — you libel someone like that — there are consequences," Khan said.  "Unfortunately, we still find ourselves defenseless because we can't protect ourselves," he said, claiming the government was a victim of — rather than an enemy of — the media. "In the past, we might have [had] issues but I honestly feel that Pakistan's media is more vibrant [and] free and sometimes crosses the line more than any other media in the world," Khan said.  Read more: Everything you need to know about Davos, the invitation-only conference that brings billionaires together with business and political leaders at a Swiss resort Billionaires and heads of state have descended on a ski town in Switzerland.

That file was likely infected with malware, and in a matter of hours large amounts of data were extracted from Bezos#39;s phone.Bin Salman is currently attempting to open Saudi Arabia to western investment and wean the country#39;s economy off its dependence on oil. However, the prince is suspected of involvement in the murder of Khashoggi, which occurred at the Saudi embassy in Turkey.Khashoggi, a columnist at the Bezos-owned Post, was critical of the Saudi regime and allied himself with an organization funded by Qatar, Saudi Arabia#39;s rival in the Persian Gulf.If confirmed, the hack into Bezos#39;s phone would also raise questions regarding how the National Enquirer tabloid received text messages between Bezos and his mistress in early 2019, including photos of the two in various revealing states.On February 7, Bezos published the photos online to prove that American Media Inc., the owner of the Enquirer, was attempting to blackmail him to stop the Amazon CEO#39;s investigation into how the Enquirer obtained the text messages in the first place."Of course I don’t want personal photos published, but I also won’t participate in their well-known practice of blackmail, political favors, political attacks and corruption," Bezos wrote at the time. "I prefer to stand up, roll this log over and see what crawls out." http://gallup.ipub.us/news/3204198-jeff-bezoss-phone-hacked-saudi-crown-prince-report Tue, 21 2020 22:12:21 GMT http://gallup.ipub.us/news/3204198-jeff-bezoss-phone-hacked-saudi-crown-prince-report See birds and golf ball-sized hail fall out of the sky Parts of southeastern Australia are being pelted by golf ball-sized hailstones -- less than 24 hours after the region was hit by massive dust storms. http://gallup.ipub.us/news/3203202-see-birds-and-golf-ball-sized-hail-fall-out-sky Mon, 20 2020 14:44:57 GMT http://gallup.ipub.us/news/3203202-see-birds-and-golf-ball-sized-hail-fall-out-sky Armchair Golf Hole Doodlers Now Have Their Own Equivalent Of A Major Championship To Dream About Winning The contest mechanism itself is different but Nicklaus Design and Golf Magazine, a twosome of 8am Golf holdings, have teamed-up to craft what amounts to Big Break for wannabe golf course designers of all stripes. http://gallup.ipub.us/news/3202837-armchair-golf-hole-doodlers-now-have-their-own-equivalent-ma Tue, 21 2020 13:18:47 GMT http://gallup.ipub.us/news/3202837-armchair-golf-hole-doodlers-now-have-their-own-equivalent-ma
