This week we look at the continuing drama around around Rhea Chakraborty. Navika Kumar and other news anchors discussed a new "drug angle", while conspiracy theories flew thick and fast on Aaj Tak and Republic. The whole episode is basically TV news channels' middle finger to viewers as anchors ignore issues like NEET-JEE, the floods in Bihar, coronavirus, and the economy. We dissect how fact-free conspiracy theories are being peddled in the name of news to carry out a modern-day witch hunt on TV news.
