Mainstream Media Vs Fake News Dispensers

TV Channels No Better Than Social Media Fakery

Indian television channels appear to enjoy immunity from punitive action for poll campaign violations.

As crucial Assembly elections are under way in Karnataka, TV channels such as News 18 have been beaming commentaries on why voters should consider the BJP and why the Congress.

A seemingly even coverage for the parties cannot be grounds for exoneration of the media from any infringements.

Times Now was clever – they showed K J George, a scandalous leader reviled in Karnataka, as the face of the Congress.

Mainstream media in India are no better than fake news dispensers.
