CNN’s Nic Robertson

I loved the way CNN‘s Nic Robertson reported Jamaat-e-Islami‘s Abbottabad rally of May 6.

When John King asked him about the rally where OBL was termed a Muslim hero and martyr, Nic said it was a small, 600-max, protest which was politically motivated.

By politically motivated, he meant the JI had organized it — a party which had a political ax to grind with the Pakistan government and the United States — meaning, the protesters were not potential suicide bombers or hardcore militants.

His reporting has been — how should I say it? — pro-Pakistan.
