Denning’s words

I BELIEVE Lord Denning’s words of wisdom are being followed in letter and spirit in Pakistan over the years. We see the criticism of the judicial decisions and verdicts and see parallel trials on media with accusations and innuendos being hurled at the judiciary with impunity.

Did Lord Denning opine on the responsibilities of media while reporting court trials or proceedings?

Unfortunately, the media in Pakistan, both electronic and print, have gone completely berserk with a toothless Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority as a regulatory watchdog looking on helplessly.

Lord Denning must be turning in his grave to see what we have done while interpreting his pearls of wisdom.
