Senior journalists at News Agency fired over unbelievable blunder relating PM Modi

*NEW DELHI - Wire agency Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) came into the spotlight recently, not for its stellar journalism but for a rather unbelievable mistake.*

The agency made a huge blunder recently when it referred to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as “Prime Minister Narendra Bakhchod Modi” in a September 12 wire story.

The story was about a pro-farmer scheme that had been announced.

The strange thing about this is that IANS has been in the business for over 25 years and is considered a credible news source.

After the error, several senior journalists at the agency were fired, reported NewsX link .
