ISLAMABAD -- With the Taliban in power in Afghanistan, journalists and media workers in the country are fleeing for their lives or going into hiding. Several private media outlets have preemptively closed their operations or minimized news bulletins and removed critical talk shows, popular music and entertainment shows and foreign dramas. Those remaining are forced to disseminate pro-Taliban news to protect their lives.
