People arrange chairs at PM’s meeting venue, Economic Times journalist claims that an ‘agitated crowd threw chairs’

Economic Times, the media org Das is associated with, has published numerous fake news articles about the BJP in the past.

The Mainstream Media is the most organized medium for the propagation of the most obnoxious form of propaganda and fake news. In recent times, they have littered the internet with fake news that is invariably directed to benefit ‘secular’ political parties. Concurrently, they have also attempted news that goes against their preferred narrative.

Now, it appears they are getting a bit too lazy about their job and taking people far too granted. Madhuparna Das, a journalist with Economic Times, shared a video on Twitter where she claimed people were throwing chairs at the venue of the Prime Minister’s address in Purulia, West Bengal after getting agitated.

However, it’s quite clear from the video that people are actually arranging the chairs in proper order by moving them around. It’s unclear how the ET journalist thought any different at all as there is absolutely no room for misunderstanding here. Only the journalist herself can explain what she was thinking while sending the tweet and why she thought it was even a good idea to make that bewildering assertion.

People on social media were pointing out the same thing to her in the replies.

Das got horribly ‘ratioed’ for her bizarre tweet. Being ratioed refers to a tweet that has got a lot more replies than it has retweets. It has been observed to be a good indicator of blunder tweets. The logic behind the term that grown immensely popular on the internet is this: If the number of replies to a tweet vastly outpaces its engagement in terms of likes and retweets, then something has gone horribly wrong. For the tweet under consideration, at the time of writing this report, Das got 261 replies and 24 retweets, that is more than times the replies than retweets.

Economic Times, the media org Das is associated with, has published numerous fake news articles about the BJP in the past. It had claimed last year that the Bharatiya Janata Party had become the number one advertiser on Indian television in the week ended November 16. It turned out to be false as we reported here. It had also claimed in July last year that China had resumed its activities in Doklam as per a top US official. However, no top US official had said such a thing.
