In fact, journalist Girijesh Vashistha has pointed out that North Indian newspapers like Dainik Bhaskar made a critical mistake by not taking inputs from a local correspondent or other sources in Tamil Nadu, and instead relying solely on phone inputs from the Bihari laborers who were already misinformed. This shows a lack of due diligence on the part of the newspaper and a failure to follow basic journalistic practices, such as fact-checking and verifying sources. In the age of social media and instant news, it is more important than ever for journalists to take their responsibility seriously and report the truth rather than relying on hearsay and unverified information.
May 2021, a fake news video went viral on social media claiming that a group of Bihari laborers were attacked in Tamil Nadu by locals. The video showed a group of men being beaten and chased by a mob, and was widely shared on WhatsApp and other platforms. However, it was soon revealed that the video was not from Tamil Nadu, but from Pakistan. The video had been edited to add a false Tamil Nadu banner and fuel communal tensions. The Tamil Nadu police quickly issued a statement clarifying the fake news and urging people to not believe or spread such misinformation. This incident highlights the importance of verifying information before sharing it on social media and the need to stay vigilant against the spread of fake news.
