Time to lay threadbare our entire series debunking the previous version of @BBCWorld @BBCIndia @Trushar @rupa_jha “fake news research” paper and then, the one debunking the current version of it which was uploaded 30 hours after the paper was unpublished. cc @Ofcom +
Article 1: Our comprehensive rebuttal of their initial research. opindia.com/2018/11/the-bb…
Article 2: Where be comprehensively debunked their methodology. They had pompously claimed that used Qualitative and Ethnography research. If so, their sweeping statements made no sense and were academically incorrect.

Then, Altnews, accused OpIndia of lying. That was fake news. Altnews also revealed, inadvertently, that BBC had failed to use primary resource for all their assertions since they had included a long deleted website as fake news source

BBC's first step towards admitting their shoddy work. They remove The Better India's name

Then, BBC pulls their research down, amends their research, uploads the research again then deleted it again for 30 long hours.

We discover a Congress connection in BBC research paper's two major sources

We then realise that not only their research paper on India, but also their fake news research paper on Nigeria and Kenya had gone missing

We publish a long essay of 20 fake news peddled by BBC. We question that if their criteria was "even one fake news published", why didn't they include BBC itself.

They re-publish their research paper. Several discrepancies & more importantly, an admission worded and hidden carefully. They admit they can't make generalisations based on this research. So, the statement on Nationalism driving fake news was FAKE NEWS

Here is what's horrifying. Aside from their carefully hidden admission of a mistake, they now say that their research is based on Semi-Ethnography research. They kept asserting earlier that it was Ethnography. They basically can't decide, or worse, they don't know.
NOW we realise that there is even more extensive bias n conflict of interest. On the lines of Nehru graciously accepting the Bharat Ratna when he was the Prime Minister. It is hilarious. It is hypocritical and extremely deceptive for BBC to have done this

In the process, me, my colleagues and my publication was abused mercilessly just because we dared to question the mighty BBC. We did. And we will continue to do so. The entire establishment crawled when asked to bend because the conclusion was to their liking. We won’t
BBC HAS ADMITTED THAT THEY CANNOT MAKE ANY GENERALISATION BASED ON THIS RESEARCH. And yet, they have treacherously not changed their media report. Because they assumed we wouldn’t realise what they added in their re-published version
