Here are the top 5 reactions against the government's rules to check fake news
"Make no mistake: this is a breathtaking assault on mainstream media. It's a moment like Rajiv Gandhi's anti-defamation bill. All media shd bury their differences and resist this."
"Fake news is a serious threat for the credibility of the journalism. For example, on CBSE paper leaks, many fake govt notifications are being circulated on the whatsapp. There is an urgent need to find ways to fight it out."
"1984 comes to 2018, but question is if @smritiirani has read George Orwell : In name of fake news, Government frames rules to blacklist journalists"
"Alleged fake news busting site promoted by government ministers in India can't tell the difference between reporting and actual fake news."
"A fake news supporting government moves to "suspend" journalists for fake news. What a pathetic, bizarre joke !"
