In this episode, host Snigdha Sharma is joined by Newslaundry’s Basant Kumar and Ayush Tiwari.

The podcast begins with Basant talking about his report on the Covid-19 outbreak at TV9 Bharatvarsh and the channel’s apathy towards its own employees. The discussion moves to press freedom in India. The context is Ayush’s report on how News 18 edited its report on low-quality N-95 masks at Delhi’s AIIMS beyond recognition. The AIIMS doctor quoted in it was also expelled from the Resident Doctors’ Association.

The trio also discusses the Delhi Police’s chargesheet in the Delhi riots case. Basant and Ayush also share a quick recap of their detailed report on the carnage.

This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.

Tune in!
