Who Owns Our Pakistani Television Channels?

Is our media really unbiased? Are the news reporters and journalists who we look towards to find out what is happening in our beloved homeland really presenting a factual and objective picture?  Or are there hidden puppet masters in the background with their own personal agendas who control what we watch in order to manipulate our emotions in order to reach their own secret goals?
