AP-CM

Screenshots of four English news channels (NDTV, CNN-IBN, Times Now, News X) and four Telugu news channels (Saakshi, TV9, TV5, Gemini News), around 2.40 pm on the day the Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y.S. Rajashekhara Reddy‘s helicopter went missing.

The top screen proclaiming the missing chief minister “safe” is of Saakshi, the channel owned by Reddy’s son, Jagan Mohan Reddy, now a member of Parliament. Gemini News too had come to the same conclusion, while among the English channels, NewsX claimed the chopper carrying the CM had been found.

The top-23 Google searches at 6.10 pm were all related to the news of the chief minister whose whereabouts were unclear eight hours after he went missing.
