Supreme Court on fake news: Told the Center – Use your power against fake news, otherwise you will give the matter to external agency


SC’s instructions and suggestions to Center on fake news

How the Act will work: On Tuesday, Chief Justice SA Bobde told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on the Centre’s reply on the same matter, ‘The Court is not happy with the Centre’s reply. There is no part in it so that it can know what powers the Center has under the Cable TV Network Act, so that such complaints can be addressed. The Center should explain how this act can be used to control the content of cable TV networks.

Explain the mechanism in the new affidavit

Chief Justice said, ‘Your affidavit is completely silent on this issue. The second issue is what steps you have taken to resolve such complaints. There is nothing in your affidavit on what the mechanism is. Please give all these things in the affidavit again.
