Journalist Talat Hussain’s reputation is shooting up in the Pakistani cyber world. He is the only TV journalist to have named corrupt Pakistani journalists who work for the failed Pakistani political parties.

In particular, he called out veteran journalist Najam Sethi on his seemingly questionable practices, including Sethi’s close links to the US government, his daughter’s job appointment at Wall Street Journal to write reports slandering Pakistan’s military and intelligence communities, and Mr. and Mrs. Sethi’s joint job appointment at an American think-tank with strong links to power centers in Washington, DC.

Most recently, information has emerged on Mr. Sethi’s impressive property holdings in Manhattan, one of the  most prime and expensive real estate destinations in the world.

Last year, Hussain exposed 21 Pakistani journalists who received a bribe from Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani in the form of a foreign junket.

In his Urdu column published at Saach.tv, Hussain discusses the relationship between political parties, businessmen and media. His column is about the scandal that has come to be known as Mediagate, where two well known Pakistani TV anchors Meher Bokhari and Mubasher Lucman were caught in a leaked video pre-planning an interview with real estate tycoon Malik Riaz. The interview was apparently covertly arranged by the Zardari government and was meant to slander the chief judge at the Supreme Court of Pakistan which is probing the corruption of both the Zardari/Gilani government Malik Riaz’s business.
