Broadcaster:  CNA

Fake news has become an industry in India, with devastating effects on the country. Disinformation is now ranked the number one threat to India, outranking infectious diseases, illicit economic activity and inequality.


A 15-year-long investigation has unearthed 750 fake media outlets operating from India and spanning across 119 countries with 550 domain names spreading fake news.


In this revealing documentary, we explore how low digital literacy, political and religious biases, and malfunctioning social media platforms have turned India into a hub for fake news - impacting democratic institutions like the press and the electoral process.
