Dunya TV: Copying is Bad, No, its Worst

Jagjit Singh died earlier today, a sad news. Everyone rushed for their share of airing/publishing the news.

– Read this coverage by Times of India

– Now read this coverage by Dunya TV’s

Do you feel any difference? No?

Just to mention, there’s no reference, linkback, credit, or anything mentioned on Dunya TV’s website.

    Not exact copy..
    Dunya TV used “HE” at some places instead of “Jagjjit Singh” :P
    >>> LOL <<<

  • Hassan

    same to same copy hai yaar, duniya tv ko jagjit singh ki jaga jagjit khan likhna chahiye tha, Lilavati Hospital ki jaga Shokat Khanam likna chahiye tha, sri nagar ki jaga karachi likhte,Padma Bhushan award ki jaga Nishan-e-Haider, popular ghazals main Meri zindagi kisi aur ki, mere naam ka koi aur hai, Apni marzi se kahan apne safar ke hum hain, Wo jo hum mein tumme qaraar tha, Patta-patta boota-boota haal hamaara jaane hai, Hoshwalo ko khabar, etc. ki jaga kameez teri kaali, dil dil pakistan, jevvey jeevey pakistan etc likhna chaiye tha.

    Jagjjit Singh has also sung for popular movies like Arth, Prem Geet, Sarfarosh and Tarqeeb.
    iski jaga likhna chahiye tha badmash gujjar, billu ghanta gariiya, sultana daku.
    dunya tv walo, kuch to sharam karo, sara he copy kar k likh dya hai, kuch to difference hota.

    Admin, most of the news outlets use news feeds like rueters, online, AFP etc. depending on their contract they sometime provide a byline and at other times aren’t required to. This can very easily be a case of using same news feed.

    • bilal

      subscribing to a news agency and copying the exact contents of another media group are two separate issues. Even while publishing the news of an agenct it needs to be quoted like AFP,AP,On line etc etc.

      • First of all this is Agencies news on TOI.
        Second Dunys News could get news from same agency or any other agency who copied it.
        Third its not a compulsion for news website to give credit of News Agency in News, its optional in most news agency contract.
        There are dozens of daily news on internet which published on multiple website without courtesy because they pay agency for it.
        They are not copying it.
        I am also a subscriber of news agency so thats why i am saying this.
        Might be Dunya copied it but i think it was not copy because TOI also got this news agencies.

    It’s not the first case of copying by Pakistan press. Most of the times, international news in our newspapers & TV channels are borrowed (who knows legally or illegally) from foreign websites, news agencies or newspapers. Our media doesn’t have an habit for mentioning the original source.

    By the way, you can see a great similarity between these two articles. Sad to see that it’s an opinion-based article and not news.

      Grow up, Arsalan. Those two articles are not “copied.” The opinion on Express Tribune and the other website is entirely different.

      If someone has the same inspiration, it does not necessarily mean it is “copied.”

    Slow news day, ain’t it? News comes in from news-wires. Dunya might have an association with the Times of India or they both might be using the same news agency. And, if the writer would have noticed, the Times of India link says, “TNN & Agencies.”

    Also Geo Super and ESPN news about world cup 2011 news are same copy of each other.

  • bilal

    It is very unfortunate that in Pakistan intelectual propet rights are not taken care off and its being done by almost all media groups.I often read some news at bbc urdu website and than next day surprisingly find the same news at jang newspaper n geo tv quoting a unique source such as ;On line Zarahe:. we often find a news channel copying video of some other channel and very bravely hiding the logo of actual telecasting channel.we need to grow and respect the intelectual propert rights of other parties

  • Danish

    Wow… i can reference number of posts from Pro-Pakistani which are exact copy of other blogs but so what?. Blogs are to share news and views… provided the news is correct it can be shared .. and views should always be original ..

  • RoznamaWatan

    Dunya Tv kay pass PML (N) aur Punjab GOVT kay against news kay elawa kuch nae ha….
    iskay elawa main na koi channel nae deka jo kisi aik Party kay against itni news on air kary..
    aur Haal yhe k khud Dosri websites say News copy kar rhay hain

  • prince

    if one word in one line is change, then we can not call it copy, and credit link is must for technology websites, not for news sites.

  • Jabran Rafique

    Plagiarism has destroyed each and every field in this country..

  • Rafay

    Apart from copying it. What fuss has dunya news created on their tv channels. Currently according to me it is the most hype creating channel on the pakistan media channel list… They ought to present a news just like a thrilling action movie… What Bullshit are they showing to the public? is their aim to create disappointment inpeople? If u show how many die of dangue, y did u show how many survives it as well ? Is ur aim just to discourage the patients or what It is not a news channel it is simply an agency working to destroy Pakistan by all means

  • imran

    rafay, lagta hai ap ne Express News pay Kamran Shahid ka koi show watch nahi kya, otherwise you’d know which news channel/show in Pakistan is most dramatic.

    Coming to the topic, similar news items are obtained from the reporting agency as one person above has reported. You can find exact copies of a news story on major websites as well.

    Secondly, this is Pakistan – for f*ck’s sake what do you expect?

    • Rafay

      Yes i do watch and i am not supporting any news channel all ov em a just here to discourage and disappoint the people but dunya news has gone real too far in negative reporting…

  • Why cant someone report them
