TV programmes with political agendas polarise society: Supreme Court 

The Supreme Court declared on Friday that television channels in India are dividing society because they compete to sensationalise news and are motivated by agendas. They also follow the instructions of their funders.

The News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) and the Central government were questioned by a bench of Justices KM Joseph and BV Nagarathna about how to regulate such broadcasts.

The Court also advocated for harsh punishments for news anchors who engage in or support hate speech.
