NDTV.com : Fact or Allegation ? Just another twisted title for sensationalism

This is yet another example of NDTV.com’s sensationalism twisted titles. The title says, as if this was a fact, woman made to urinate in public. In fact, this was just an allegation by a lawyer.

If NDTV.com to demonstrate any integrity, should have included the word ‘alleged’ or ‘charged’ or similar words to indicate that this wasn’t a fact, but an allegation by a lawyer. That would have changed the entire tone of the article.

The problem is that everywhere the page is referred on social networks and elsewhere, it is the title that will be quoted and repeated. Not many people may even read the whole story.  Being very active on social networks, NDTV know that quite well. So NDTV.com scored a perfect sensational story, with its choice of words in the title.

At that time, there was nothing confirming that it actually happened. No video footage or any of those women directly made that allegation on videos.
