Why The English Media cannot see what other sees?

Why The English Media cannot see what other sees?

The role of Sindhiyani Tahreek and Awami Tahreek in yesterday strike was deliberately ignored by English media, please analysis following links. How it is possible, when yesterday every Sindhi and Urdu tv channel reported sindhiyani Tahreek and Awami Tahreek played active role in Hyderabad, Karachi, Thatta, Sukkur, Tando Allahyar, Badin and other Cities, surprisingly English Media could not observe it. We must condemn such attitude of English Media.
