News, Views & Confused is a Pakistani political and social satire show. It is based on BBC’s popular panel show Have I Got News for You. It started to air on one of Pakistan’s leading TV channels AAJ TV from April 11, 2007. The show is hosted by TV personality and journalist Fasi Zaka and co-hosted by eccentric journalist and writer, Nadeem F. Paracha and fashion journalist, Mohsin Sayeed. It is scripted by George Fulton who is also the producer of the show.

The hosts of the show remain in character. Fasi Zaka is a witty democracy loving liberal, while Nadeem F. Paracha is the sardonic and cynical leftist with “quite authoritarian political views.” Mohsin Sayeed is the Fashion Journalist with an eye for social issues.
