Sach na dekho, sach na suno, sach na bolo. That seems to be the motto of some of our dear news anchors like Anjana Om Kashyap, Arnab Goswami and Rubika Liyaquat as they sidelined the Hathras case. A young Dalit girl lost her life after battling severe injuries and a murderous assault. On the day she died, some news anchors decided to ignore that story and instead kept their focus on the SSR case and even peddled fake news.

In the dead of night, the UP police carried out her cremation forcefully. Aaj Tak’s Tanushree Pandey and NDTV captured the police’s actions on camera but guess what Republic was busy showing?

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
