In this episode, host Nidhi Suresh is joined by Newslaundry’s Shivnarayan Rajpurohit.
They discuss two reports by Shiv, including aof former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma and how her remarks against prophet Muhammad on a Times Now debate triggered her downfall. “You have freedom of speech but it isn’t absolute so you can’t say anything and get away with it,” Shiv says, adding that Nupur has seen a “sudden rise and fall in a very short time”. He speaks about her academic record and political career.
The second was on a viral video showing prominent TV news anchors walking out of a POCSO court. The case is linked to a 2013 broadcast containing inappropriate visuals of a minor. They talk about the updates in the case as the trial goes on.
This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.
