Reporters Without Orders Ep 273: Online trolling of CJI, Manipur violence survivor’s interview

This week, host Basant Kumar is joined by Newslaundry’s Tanishka Sodhi and Shivnarayan Rajpurohit. 

Tanishka’s story of the week investigated the online trolling of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud from January to April this year. It involved morphed photos and accusations of being “anti-Hindu”. Tanishka explains the significant role played by digital influencers in driving this social media discourse.

Shivnarayan talks about his interview with Jamngaihkim Gangte, a 20-year-old from Manipur who lost her mother and brother to the ongoing violence in the state. On mainstream media coverage of Manipur, Shiv says, “With a few notable exceptions, there haven’t been any genuine stories produced in contrast to the stories about the Delhi riots that have received sufficient coverage.”
