Indira Jaising excoriates the Express

IN Media Watch Briefs | 12/02/2018
Senior advocate Indira Jaising's strong tweets on the Indian  Express's "atrocious reporting"  on the Supreme Court's Feb 9  hearings in the petition on the death of Judge Loya, may have forced the newspaper to 'update' its report. It dropped the reporter's byline  and corrected the mix up over which judge was transferred, and the wrongly attributed quotes. Alas, even the corrected story has errors, Ms Jaising said in another tweet.
