Media industry is passing through a critical juncture: Hafiz Naeem

Karachi, January 21, 2019 (PPI-OT): The media industry is passing through a critical juncture; adding that the media houses’ owners have started down-sizing in their TV channels and news papers by taking an advantage of anti-media policy of the present government.
