TO APOLOGIZE! NBSA asked ‘Aaj Tak’ to apologize for misreporting Sushant Singh’s death
The National Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) rejected the review request of the new broadcaster “Aaj Tak”.
On October 6th, NBSA placed the same order, which was then sent for review.
Aaj Tak incorrectly reported a certain tweet as the last tweet from Sushant Singh Rajput, shortly before his death.
NBSA asked Aaj Tak to apologize on live television for the misreporting of the SSR’s death.
Date and time: April 23 at 8 p.m.
Static text would be displayed on a large screen. The font would be big and there will be a slow speed voice over.
The following text is translated into Hindi:
Aaj Tak apologizes while covering the suicide-related incidents from Sushant singh rajputWe ran certain tweets on the Aaj Tak channel and incorrectly labeled the screenshots as real and assigned them as the actor’s last tweets. In doing so, we have violated Clause 1 of the Specific Reporting Guidelines on Accuracy, which states that information should be collected from more than one first-hand source whenever possible. News agency reports should be mapped and reviewed if possible. Accusations should be reported exactly as made and factual errors corrected at the earliest in order to give the broadcasting of the correct version of the facts sufficient weight.
Channel was asked to pay the fine of Rs. 1 lakh.
