How to avoid being caught by a fake international news agency
Agritrade International News, which is owned by the Indian state-run news agency, has been used by an international news organisation to fabricate stories in India, according to the news portal’s founder.
According to Agritrave, the news channel was set up in September 2016 by the state-owned News24.
It’s managed by a team of editors and reporters, who are all based in India.
The team behind Agritrare, including the team behind the Agritre International News (AIN), said the news agency was set to be a new way of reaching the public in India.”AIN is an international network and our mission is to provide a platform for Indian citizens to connect with journalists, activists and politicians,” the team said.
“Our objective is to offer a platform that gives the Indian citizens a platform to have a better understanding of the issues that affect them.”
In an interview with NDTV, Agritrain said the AIN was meant to help the media get to the bottom of India’s recent economic crisis.
“It is the responsibility of news agencies to give an honest view and truth about the country’s problems,” he said.
He said that the news team was set apart from other channels because they would have to follow guidelines of the Indian Media Development Corporation (IMDC).
“We were given guidelines for the content, but we are not the same as other news channels,” Agritrame said.
“We are not going to follow the news agenda of other news agencies and we will work in a manner that suits our objectives.”
Agritrade said the company had been given permission to use the Agritech International news network in India on a trial basis.
“The decision was taken to use Agritraste international news channel in India after it got permission from the IMDC,” the company said in a statement.
Agritrame also said that he had been told by the media that the Agramec team would be “working with the IMC in India to provide media with unbiased information”.
“The Agritec team has been working with the Agitrare international news team in India for several months now,” he added.
