Innovation has no boundaries. No time limit. It only requires you to overcome your sense of hesitation to make a difference. Getting encumbered by past success is a recipe for disaster. Stagnation is slow poison that contaminates mind, leading individuals and institutions to the limitless graveyard of history. Daily Capital is a vision that came into being after several lengthy discussions. It also represents our team’s will and ability to explore new frontiers after successfully managing a major news channel that has made a mark in Pakistan’s broadcast industry. But why was it important for us to have an e-publication after ruling the national airwaves? To answer this question, let’s take a look at the history of journalism. James Hickey, a former disgruntled employee of the East India Company, brought out the first newspaper in the Subcontinent. He published Hickey’s Bengal Gazette in 1780 to expose corruption and nepotism in the Company – and reveal the true face of British colonialism. The evolution of press continued for centuries. As the world made technological advances, radio and television became popular sources of infotainment. How can one forget the first live radio broadcasts by Edward Morrow during the London Bombing in World War II? Or how can anyone put out of their minds other icons of journalism such as H L Menken, Walter Cronkite, Peter Jennings and David Frost? But journalism is a dynamic profession, as we have witnessed in the last two decades, or so, with the advent of Internet. The information and communications technology has virtually come to dominate the media industry during this period. Many people have stopped buying newspapers since they can access their websites free of cost or at nominal rates. This technological revolution has also altered the way people consume information these days. They do not wait throughout the day to watch their favorite programmes. They can explore everything on the Internet in their own sweet time. In this brave new world, news travels at the speed of light. Daily Capital was launched with the same vision that we embraced while starting Capital TV a few years ago. We had made a pledge to our viewers back then that we were going to support democracy, oppose violent extremism, criticise the wrong policies of the government and adhere to the highest journalistic standards. We tend to agree with media analysts that the rise of private news channels in Pakistan has resulted in a decline in the overall quality of journalism in the country. As the situation stands, Pakistan is facing a number of challenges: it has to deal with the spectre of religious militancy, resolve the ongoing energy crisis, rejuvenate the economy, educate its citizens and offer them good employment opportunities. None of this is going to happen until the country begins to discuss these issues, instead of brushing them under the carpet. The good thing is that we can bring together government functionaries, policymakers and other opinion leaders and encourage them to debate significant issues on a daily basis. We watch many talk shows every day. However, most of them are not result-oriented and are usually narrowly focused. This needs to change since we are at a very crucial juncture of our history where we cannot afford to make our past mistakes over and over again. We believe it is important to inform people about major developments around the world and help them find their place in it. Daily Capital is our ambitious attempt to put the world in your palm, and it will benefit immensely if you provide us your feedback. Writer is the editor of Daily Capital. Twitter: @shahzadrez
