The News Nation interview with PM Narendra Modi continued to make news today. Twitter is having a field day with #CloudyModi as one of the top trends. 

Journalists noted how the interview may have been scripted. At one point, News Nation’s camera zooms in on a bunch of papers Modi is holding, one of which has a question written on it. Anchor Deepak Chaurasia had asked this question to the PM almost verbatim. Alt New Co-Founder Pratik Sinha put up a Twitter thread on this today morning.  

Meanwhile, Firstpost carried a ‘fact-check’ based on Sinha’s thread, which it now seems to have pulled down.

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