Modiji went to Kashi and that's all it took for our dear news anchors to ignore the farmer protests. Meanwhile, Arnab Goswami and Sudhir Chaudhary saw a Khalistan, anti-national conspiracy at the Singhu border. We were told farmers are fools, misled, and pawns in the hands of the Opposition.

Newslaundry went to ground zero to find some answers to questions these TV news anchors were raising. We found anger against what farmers say is "Godi Media". Any surprises?
