Newslaundry Podcast

Early this week, we republished an article from Fair Observer that was based on a false report, attributing fake quotes to Arundhati Roy. In this episode of NL Hafta, the Newslaundry team of Abhinandan Sekhri, Atul Chaurasia, Anand Vardhan and Manisha Pande take stock of our current editorial filters and discuss the challenges fake news presents. The team is joined by freelance journalist Rishi Majumder to discuss this and a lot more, like the Dalit unity rally in New Delhi -- did it get enough coverage in Big Media? We also discuss the Army awarding Major Nitin Leetul Gogoi for counter insurgency operations. What message does the move send out to the Valley? More importantly, has the Modi government politicised the Army? We move on to discuss the caste violence in Saharanpur, GST tax, and the Twitter furore over Paresh Rawal, Sonu Nigam and Abhijeet Bhattacharya. Listen up.
