NDTV Editor Spreads fake News About Attack on BJP MP Locket Chatterjee, Deletes Tweet When Caught

NDTV editor Umashankar Singh spread fake news about the attack on the BJP MP Locket Chatterjee Saturday morning.   The Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Hooghly Locket Chatterjee was attacked allegedly by the Trinamool Congress supporters when her cavalcade was passing through Hooghly.   The protesters broke down the window of her car.    News channel NDTV’s editor Umashankar Singh tweeted the video of the attack and claimed the glass window of the car was broken by someone from inside the car. Although it was very clear on the 8th second of the video he had tweeted that a flying stone had hit the window.   Many social media users pointed out how the video Singh had himself tweeted showed something very different from what Singh was claiming.   But Singh did not delete the video for many hours.   Abhisar Sharma, a freelance journalist, not just tweeted a similar story but also did a full show on YouTube explaining how the attack on Chatterjee’s car window was from inside the car.   Later, Singh deleted the tweet and apologised for his mistake. But, he did not explain why it took him so long to realise his mistake when it was very evident from the video he had tweeted first.   Chatterjee is also contesting for the legislative assembly from Hooghly. The journalists who were accompanying her were also attacked.   She later requested the central security forces to rescue the journalists who were caught in the attack.
