#SatireLikeAmarUjala: When Congress shared maliciously cropped satirical article on ‘scam in Kumbh’ as real news

One thing mistaking a parody for real and completely different to maliciously crop an image to spread satire as real news

If you thought satire is a lost art, think again. Madhya Pradesh Congress’ official Twitter account today shared a satirical report from Amar Ujala which spoke of a Rs 800 crore scam in the recently concluded Prayagraj Kumbh Mela as real news.

MP Congress tweet, now deleted

In a tweet shared my MP Congress Twitter account, alleged a Rs 800 crore scam in the recently concluded Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj. The tweet further wondered how the BJP does not even leave religious and holy places out of corruption.

However, the article shared in above tweet was a satirical article from Amar Ujala. Considering Congress had cropped out the part which clarified that the article is satirical, one wonders about the malicious intention of the party to spread fake news.

Satire article by Amar Ujala

Soon, twitterati donned their creative hats and took to satire to mock Congress’ mischief by using the hashtag #SatireLikeAmarUjala

Considering the fact that the thin line between satire and reality is crossed way too many times, it is not new for media houses as well as politicians to mistake parody and satire handles for real. However, the fact that Congress took efforts to crop the original image to spread the satire as real news, show the malice in their intention.
