Editorial about Cartoon Protests in Pakistan

The Daily Times, published out of Pakistan's second largest city, the historical metropolis of Lahore, has become the paper most people involved with Pakistan turn to for a different point of view, a slightly more unvarnished look at things than that provided by the two dominant papers in the market. Of course, there are other views out there, like The Nation and others, but The Daily Times is, shall we say, the darling of the more well-spoken liberal circles.

Here's a link to their editorial for February 16th, 2006, The Day After major "protests" in Lahore:

Really Saira? The Daily Times as a "tabloid"? I know it's physical format is that of a tabloid rather than a broadsheet, but I thought that word was usually reserved for the Yellow Press, so to speak; like the Evening Special in Karachi.

Nice to hear from you!
