The God of false things : How Arundhati Roy creates fake news and gets away with it


Arundhati Roy is a very lucky person. Right before her book release, it just so happens that somebody starts planting fake news stories about her, putting Ms. Roy at the heart of controversy. Everybody knows there is no such thing as bad publicity.

The episode put ‘fake news’ in focus again with hilarious results. The mainstream media, which is the leading manufacturer of fake news, decided to hold debates and shows on ‘fake news’. Or maybe they are right, after all they have the expertise.

But not just the mainstream media, even Arundhati Roy seems to have the expertise. I’ll illustrate this by telling you how Arundhati Roy creates fake news, sustains it, and how she actually uses it to further advantage even when caught.
You kids take notes. Watch and learn from the legend herself.

(1) IT HAPPENED TO A FRIEND OF A FRIEND…


The year was 2002. A fiery Arundhati Roy was determined to shake the conscience of the nation like she always does. Here she is, writing in the Outlook:

How to combat fake news....


10 Instances That Show A Fake News Explosion Is Taking Place In India


Don't believe social media blindly.


Rumour-mongering has always been around but an organised, US-style fake news explosion on social media has come to India.

After all the brouhaha over BJP MP Paresh Rawal's tweet saying writer Arundhati Roy should be used as a human shield, it turned out that Rawal was also a victim of fake news.

In his tweet, Rawal had said, "Instead of tying stone pelter on the army jeep tie Arundhati Roy!" He was referring to an incident in Kashmir, where a civilian was tied to an army jeep during the elections there. Rawal's tweet was outrageous. And it was based on a non-existent interview Arundhati Roy supposedly gave during a recent trip to Srinagar.

As the Wire pointed out, the tweet was based on a post on the 'The Nationalist' Facebook page saying, "70 lakh Indian Army cannot defeat Azadi gang in Kashmir: Arundhati Roy gives statement to Pakistani newspaper!"

Roy told the Wire
that said she had not been to Srinagar recently nor made any statements about Kashmir.

This isn't new. What we are calling 'fake news' is misinformation that people fall for. With social media becoming so mainstream, we have a problem.
