Dear @ICIJorg here is mr umar cheema accidently sharing his cell phone screen shot showing instructions he received from Maryam aurangzeb (a political party spokes person) to manipulate other party. Do you think it’s fare enough and does it suit to dignity of a journalist? pic.twitter.com/xsVkrzhUs5

If only Umar Cheema had taken his employment guidelines seriously, he wouldn’t be embarrassingly deleting his tweet today. https://t.co/dBgBGVfnUE

Sharing screen shots of pmln Maryam unintentionally by Umar cheema tells a lot about Pakistan journalism these days and is an answer why media is facing crises. Manipulating things on orders of someone. It needs to be condemned by everyone across the board
