In this regard, anti-judiciary coverage is limited to the coverage of the case against the owner of GEO News network, Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman. Overall, acrimony is created for Imran Khan, his workers, and his political party during the coverage of his sit-in.
PTI workers have continued their legacy of ill manners. After forgetting the promises of their leaders, they have attacked GEO News. They harassed the female workers, and tried to get them out of the car by making them hostage. Pakistan hockey team has got a huge victory in a significant match of an important tournament.

In the above example, one can see the choice of lexical items which again puts Imran Khan as a villain or even enemy of the state of Pakistan.
