Facebook banned President Donald Trump from the platform “indefinitely” due to the US leader’s efforts to incite the violence in the US capital this week, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday. Zuckerberg said on his Facebook page that the ban, which was announced Wednesday for 24 hours, was extended because of Trump’s “use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.” However, we feel his statement reeks of Hypocrisy. Many mainstream Indian media reported that TIME magazine has appreciated Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. These media houses presented it as editorial coverage by Time magazine. In this episode of the Editorial, our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair shares his take.
