The Fake News Circus Around The Sushant Case
TV channels have made a spectacle of the actor’s death to facilitate their agenda of gaining maximum viewership
The Sushant Singh Rajput case has been one of the most trending topics since the actor’s death on June 14. The much-loved film star’s alleged suicide fuelled an overwhelming public uproar, with his friends and fans demanding the truth about why and how he died.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is already on its 12th day of finding answers to the death mystery, that initially started off as suicide and was then called a murder by many. In all this, what is shocking is the media circus and several channels sharing invalidated and fake news with their viewers.
Many broadcasters have spewed hate and already branded actress Rhea Chakraborty and her family guilty.
The drugs angle that emerged in the case and multiple stories around Sushant’s possible addiction were displayed across channels and portals without evidence. To increase their TRPs, the spectacle by these channels have resulted in denying basic dignity to the deceased actor.
WhatsApp forwards and half-baked information by the media have been shared with the public, who only want to know the truth. What also seems to have emerged is a Sushant versus Rhea camp in this entire fight.
Celebrities like actress Vidya Balan have stressed on responsible journalism and urged everyone to not speculate till the CBI reveals the truth.
