Hamid Mir Knows every thing

On the day when Pakistani players were snubbed by the IPL, a sports channel in its nightly program called Hamid Mir to know about his views on the snubbing of Pakistani Players.

Hamid Mir revealed that a day before the auction he received a call from some high up in India and he did tell him that pakistani players would be snubbed and that it was all pre planned and he already knew it.

This reminded me of atleast two more instances where Hamid Mir revealed that he already knew that this incident would happen.

One was on the day on 9/11, where he claimed that he was sitting in his office when some one from Al Qaeda came to his office and stayed there in his office on the pretext that he has some thing special to tell Hamid Mir, and as soon the terrorist attacked happened the person handed over Hamid Mir a letter, claiming to be from Osama Bin Laden.

Second such instance was on the occassion of Pakistan reaching the 1999 cricket world cup final.
Where Hamid Mir claimed that a day before the final he was sitting with some high ups and ministers and they informed him that the final was fixed and Pakistan will loose the final.

If Hamid Mir has been knowing so much in advance why didnt he report that before the incident happened ? His channel and he himself is being knows for breaking the news and doing insights and revealing stories ?
Why didnt he cover or report these incidents ? and kept them to himself only to reveal it later ?
Is justice being done to journalism ?
