TV Newsance Ep 140: Population control bill, Yogi, Modi and their TV news fans

Your weekly dose of all the insanity that passes off as news on TV.

WrittenBy:NL Team

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Adityanath gave an interview to Amish Devgan and got away with making some pretty brazen statements. We look at how the News18 anchor allowed the BJP leader to get away with no counter questions. Rajat Sharma on India TV, meanwhile, continued to give us a daily timetable of prime minister Narendra Modi. Uttar Pradesh’s new population control bill was discussed and debated, with the usual suspects indulging in communal dog whistling.

Bonus: Aaj Tak, Zee News and India TV head to the Line of Control to cover a mock drill by the military.
