An article I have written in March 2020 about how western vloggers misrepresent Pakistan is challenged by an anonymous parody account on Twitter, saying my publication would be a plagiarism. Actually, the text of my article and its documents are original ones resulting from my researches and from my personal writings. As far as the subject of the article is concerned, it is not an “idea” invented by the individual claiming its property on February 2020. It is a hot topic from years before. My article is a detailed contribution but it never pretended having created the concept under review. My concern, as a travel writer about Pakistan, was to bring my western vision and my experience about a deceiving propaganda organisation targetting foreigners. I also wanted to highlight the spoiling dimension of the system for Pakistani people producing media content.
