Fake news, Godi media and journalists


No doubt that the entire world is suffering with fake and propaganda news; but all journalists do not necessarily spread all these news.

There are two types of journalists: firstly, bootlicking and sycophancy journalists who leave no stone unturned to praise everything about government, leader Lord and their party. They are the blind and the supporters of establishment. Then they are supposed to be patriot. Secondly, who toil to expose the wrongdoers and don’t bother much for the consequences. Such a journalist and media houses are framed anti-government and even sometime ant-national because of truthful and honest in their duties. On Monday, the ministry of information and broadcasting (I&B) threatened to take away the accreditation of journalists who would be found propagating fake news. Excuse to say that the firstly journalists’ (Godi media) accreditation must be taken away because they circulate the fake and propaganda news.
