Terming lack of patience and tolerance biggest challenge of our age, Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud has said that truth is a victim in an age of false news. Speaking at a conference organised by the American Bar Association, CJI Chandrachud said a danger that society faces is that technology and its repercussions are flowing out of control. He also spoke about use of technology by the judiciary and issues confronting the judicial profession. In September 2021 also the Supreme Court had expressed grave concern over web portals and YouTube channels for spreading fake news in the absence of a regulatory mechanism. Over the years the Government has put in place statutory and institutional mechanisms to combat fake news. For Print Media, Press Council of India has framed ”Norms of Journalistic Conduct” under the Press Council Act, 1978 and all TV Channels are required to adhere to the Programme Code under the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995. For digital news publishers, the Government has notified the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021 under the IT Act, 2000. A Fact Check Unit has been set up under Press Information Bureau under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
