In this episode, host Nidhi Suresh is joined by Newslaundry’s Tanishka Sodhi and Pratyush Deep.
Pratyush discusses his from Assam, where a student was charged under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act for allegedly backing banned separatist outfit United Liberation Front of Asom on social media. “The one line which led her to jail was apparently read by the police in the sense that she wanted to join ULFA at some point,” Pratyush says. He also discusses ULFA and notes much of the legacy media's apathy towards such stories.
The discussion then shifts to Tanishka’s on Alt News cofounder Mohammed Zubair’s bail hearing, and what transpired in the Supreme Court.
This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.
