Was the media complicit in broadcasting misinformation about NDTV? The channel thinks so.  It said in a statement that the press had gone by a misleading press release of the income tax department regarding the ruling of the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal suggesting that ITAT had accepted claims of money laundering.
