Nidhi Razdan and abusive journalist Swati Chaturvedi caught lying on NDTV (video)

By now everyone is quite familiar with the deplorable reporting standards on NDTV. We have repeatedly exposed NDTV for their false and propaganda based news reports. NDTV’s anchor Nidhi Razdan too is a professional when it comes to lying.

Earlier, we had shown a video of Nidhi Razdan where she was caught off-guard while desperately tying to spin an argument, on her show Left, Right & Centre:

On Tuesday night, Nidhi Razdan was once again spotted parrotting a lie. It was a debate in which the focus was a “book” written by noted abusive social media troll turned lying journalist Swati Chaturvedi. The book talked about how according to Chaturvedi, BJP was directing and coordinating attacks on other social media users and establishments.

At one point of time, the debate veered to the issue of the Boycott Snapdeal movement, and it was alleged by Nidhi Razdan, working in tandem with Chaturvedi, that this was a movement backed by the BJP or even the Government. Razdan, at this point, chose to read out a passage from the book written by Chaturvedi, which quoted Defence Minister Parrikar as saying:

“….people have shown their power. An actor made this mistake….some of our people are very smart, there was a team working on this, they were telling people you order and return..”

The focus was on the word “our”, as Nidhi Razdan used this word to argue that it was either Parrikar’s or BJP’s or the Government’s team which was running this movement.

This video of Parrikar’s speech had originally surfaced in July 2016, and even then, a few media houses and journalists had used the words “our” team to create a furore. Even back then, we had written a detailed article with the original video and a transcript of the same, which showed that at no place in the video did Parrikar use the word “our” or any such synonym. He only stated that he was aware of a team working on this issue:

When this actor did this, the company for which he was advertising, was an online trading company. Many people broke relations with that their company. Many people quit from the lease, and some over smart people ordered goods and sent them back. There was a team, which I know, which was working on this. They were telling people you order and return it, this company should learn a lesson. That to pull out his advertisement.

Yet, Swati Chaturvedi, deliberately used a false quote in her book, Nidhi Razdan parroted the same, and then based a line of questioning exactly on this false quote. Firstly, can anyone trust a repeated liar like Swati Chaturvedi who has been called out multiple times with hard evidence? Secondly is this the standard of journalism practised by NDTV and Nidhi Razdan where they use false quotes to run their TV show?

It gets worse for Razdan, as in August itself, Barkha Dutt, Razdan’s senior, had clearly admitted on her show, that the defence minister never used the word “our” or “my” but referred to “a” team. We have pieced both the videos together:

Does this mean 2 of NDTV’s leading anchors have 2 different versions of the truth? Is this in line with another NDTV anchor who once famously said: “news is always subjective”? Or is it line with another top NDTV anchor who infamously sliced and diced an interview video, to present a picture which he wanted to? Can anyone take NDTV seriously anymore?
