Information & broadcasting minister swears by pubcaster's authenticity, and not aping pvt channels

NEW DELHI: All-India Radio continues to be the most authentic source for news not only in India but also for those living outside the country and want to get news which true and not sensationalised, minister of information and broadcasting M Venkaiah Naidu has said.

Lauding the pubcaster for keeping away from the cacophony often created by private television channels with news that was often unsubstantiated, he said AIR continued to be the first choice for a majority of radio listeners not only for news but also for the variety of programming.

Stressing that the government supported freedom of speech and expression, he warned against the dangers of disinformation. He regretted that even social media platforms and newspapers often deviated from truth.
