Supreme Court to Centre: Curb inciting TV content

New Delhi, January 28

Noting that certain content aired by TV news channels had an “instigating effect”, the SC on Thursday said the government wasn’t doing anything to check such reporting.

“Fair and truthful reporting is not a problem. Problem is when it is used to agitate others,” the SC said. The petitioners have sought strict action against channels “spreading communal hatred”. — TNS
