Ban Click-bait entertainment outlets like Mangobaaz, Parhlo etc etc.. from publishing news
This petition had 1,086 supporters
Every meaningless issue like Mahira Khan smoking or misguided tweets by famous people are used and passed off as news by these outlets in order to capitalise on the situation and to increase the number of hits on their websites. These instances are blown out of proportion and the real news like the changing political atmosphere of the country is lost in the mindless bickering that then ensued in the comments section. All this does is create a hostile environment around, facts are lost to opinion, and the real winners in these arguments are egos and the bank accounts of these site owners. These websites should only stick to creating entertainment content and be allowed nothing else. Mangobaaz's tagline says that they're telling a different story and that what their news actually is. Bending facts to suit their own narrative to maximise clicks. It's a nothing but a cheap piece of fiction in the ilk of Stephanie Meyers and E.L. James.
