Media is a tool with powers to fool people

A section of Indian media is playing a divisive role that could only weaken the country and give rise to extremism--an extremely dangerous trend world over. All the citizens of the world have a duty to be alert to such propagandists and use social media to question them. The piece below concerns Indian Express, which is losing its reputation by the day with its manipulated stories. Below they are made accountable in a mock session of people's press council.

The first mock hearing of People's Press Council concerns the "Indalit Express" of August 11, 2016. They are asked a few questions on their front-page story of the day, headlined: "UP youth caught for theft is killed when he says he's Dalit."

Press Council: Your report says that the unfortunate victim was killed on disclosing his Dalit identity, right?

Indalit Express: Right.

Press Council: And that this was witnessed by his neighbour Prasoon, a first-hand eye-witness. Right.

Indalit Express: Right.

Press Council: And Prasoon is a 14-year-old neighbour of the victim who was accompanying him, right.

Indalit Express: Right.

Press Council: And that Prasoon was injured by the assaulters when he tried to intervene, forcing him to run away, right.
