The media was frantic much before the Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani arrived at the Supreme Court. There was a sharp division between the PPP supporters and non-supporters. Some were fuming while others struggling not to lose their bearings knowing how cool the Supreme Court is about its own contempt.
Almost every noted TV anchor covered this verdict and the day was as ‘eventful’ as last year’s May 2 [when OBL’s assassination drove media crazy]. Analyzing the media reaction to the verdict is almost impossible because much of it was a prolonged vomit. The live transmissions, tickers, political statements, Asma Jahangir’s press conference and everything related to the verdict reached the public in real-time.
