Revisiting One Eleven

Commentaries & Editorials published in The Daily Star during Jan 11, 2007 to Jan 8, 2009

At a talk show on February 3, The Daily Star Editor Mahfuz Anam regretted about a lapse in his editorial judgement in publishing a few reports based on information supplied by task force intelligence cell during caretaker government regime in 2007 without verifying them independently, which was not possible during those emergency days. As this statement triggered a smear campaign questioning the role of The Daily Star and its editor, we present to our readers all editorials and commentaries by Mahfuz Anam published between January 11, 2007 and January 8, 2009 so that our readers and our critics can judge the newspaper’s role themselves.
