The left-leaning disgraced journo, an alleged sexual predator, and a certified purveyor of fake news, Vinod Dua is the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons. He has come up with his new show ‘The Vinod Dua Show’ on HW news. Recently, he shared a cleverly edited video of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari’s interview with Akhilesh Bhargava which gave the impression that Gadkari spoke against the Modi government. The Office of Nitin Gadkari without any delay exposed the lies of Vinod Dua. They posted the original version of the interview on Facebook, exposing the lies of Vinod Dua, who is notorious for his dishonest and biased journalism.
“This ORIGINAL interview clip exposes Vinod Dua’s Propaganda YouTube video (paid news) against Shri Nitin Gadkari. Please compare the two video clips Propaganda vs Reality. Vinod Dua has doctored the interview to make it appear as if the stalled projects and NPA were in Ganga related projects and the fault was of the Modi Government. Whereas Shri Gadkari has clearly stated in the interview that all the stalled projects were road and highway projects caused by the UPA government.”

After getting exposed by Nitin Gadkari, HW news deleted the video from website and YouTube, and the website which seems to be a digital pamphlet of the left-liberal ecosystem also made a bizarre clarification. They have not tendered any apology to Nitish Gadkari for maligning his image. The HW news website in its clarification said, “That clip was erroneously sent incomplete to Mr. Dua, based on which Mr. Vinod Dua conveyed his comments. Mr. Dua sends his anchor links from Delhi and insertions of clips and graphics etc is done in Mumbai.”
The clarification is ridiculous, to say the least. It seems a deliberate attempt to protect Vinod Dua and put the blame on someone else’s shoulders. The clarification, in fact, raises a serious question on the credibility of Vinod Dua as a journalist. If an experienced journalist like Vinod Dua made an assumption based on an ‘incomplete’ clip then it shows that he is an irresponsible journalist who does not bother to cross-check and verify the news before making personal assumptions. Even a tyro in the field of journalism would see a complete interview before jumping to conclusions; however, it seems that same cannot be expected from a journalist who is notorious for his hatred against the BJP government, and its leaders.
Deleting the video is not going to help the case. The HW news as well as Vinod Dua should apologize for maligning the image of Nitin Gadkari by using a selected portion of his interview and spreading misinformation about the incumbent government.
