The Supreme Court is concerned about fake news on social media and YouTube

Social media and YouTube

The Supreme Court expressed significant worry on Thursday over the dissemination of fake news via internet sites and YouTube channels in the lack of a regulating system. “If you go to YouTube, you will find how fake news is freely circulated and anyone can start a channel on YouTube,” the SC bench comprising Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, and Justices Surya Kant and A S Bopanna stated.

The CJI went on to say that these sites write things in opposition to judges, unaccountable institutions, and only listen to powerful voices. The CJI added: “Do not know who to approach…they are only concerned with the people who are powerful… judges, common man, they are not bothered.”The Supreme Court took a harder stance against some non-profit media organisations that broadcast content with a communal tone.“Everything shown in a section of private media bears a communal tone.

Ultimately, this country is going to get a bad name. Did you ever attempt to regulate these private channels,” the SC requested solicitor basic Tushar Mehta.According to Mehta, the Centre has issued new Information and Technology Rules to address the issues raised by the CJI. However, he stated that many applications challenging the new IT standards have been filed in high courts.

He informed the Supreme Court that the Centre had filed a motion to transfer all of these petitions to the Supreme Court.The Supreme Court agreed to hear the Centre's request for the transfer of petitions from various high courts to itself on the issue of recently passed IT guidelines aimed to manage on-line content material such as social media and web portals after six weeks.
