Khabar Pakki Hai? verifies viral content on News18 India

MUMBAI: With the exponential growth of social media, innumerable photos, videos and stories are shared every second, but there is no way to check the authenticity of all this content. This results in a lot of misinformation impacting opinion and resultant actions by people believing these false & fabricated stories.

As verification of such viral content becomes all the more vital, News18 India brings ‘Khabar Pakki Hai?’ – a show that will not only check facts and test the authenticity of viral content but also try to assess whether it is real or just propaganda.

TV18 Broadcast Limited, is a part of Network18 Group. Through its subsidiary, TV18, the group operates news channels such as CNBC-TV18, CNBC Awaaz, CNBC-TV18 Prime HD, CNN-NEWS18, and News18 India. TV18 also operates a JV with Viacom called Viacom18, which houses a portfolio of popular entertainment channels such as Colors, Colors HD, Rishtey, MTV India, MTV Indies, Comedy Central, Vh1, Nick, Sonic, Nick Jr and Viacom18 Motion Pictures.

News18 will also reach out to the relevant authorities and try to get the official statements on the unverified news. In the event of two conflicting versions of the same story that are hard to fact-check, the show will present the opposing narratives highlighting the contradiction in the story.

Through this show, the channel will examine news doing the rounds on various social media platforms and attempt to debunk disinformation and try and tell fake from real news. Watch ‘KhabarPakki Hai?’ starting 22 April, every Saturday & Sunday at 7.30pm.
