To keep the previous post short here is an added thought:

The most pressing question I think is whether the media's portrayal of the protests will motivate further protests, and whether a small but vocal minority can truly change government policy.
As reported a couple of days ago, mobs for hire are easily available in Pakistan, and the important question there again is whether the protests will be sustained by popular support from the people, or whether it'll fizzle.
And in either case, shouldn't the media be portraying the whole story - ie everyone's opinions. Otherwise one might suggest they would be happy to inflame the situation so that there will be more excitingly gorey war stories to report on.
