Wonder what presence of mind can do? It can bring down a flashy news from the top-notch newspaper publishers.

A week back, Aaj Tak which is known for its breaking news and is quite popular Hindi news-channel to get informative content from, mistook a parody tweet and made a debate show it, surprisingly the very same day TOI’s segment Times Of Bangalore also published an interview which is believed to be conducted by them with someone who they believed was Hulk Hogan.

Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American retired professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and musician. Hogan is regarded by many as the greatest professional wrestler of all time.


In past, TOI has a coverage of the wrestling match of Mr. Wrestling because of which he was in Chandigarh, and this story was put up with a caption’Hulk Hogan lookalike, Mr Wrestling brought cheer to the audiences’. TOI has pulled down the interview from its website admitting that it was factually incorrect. It somehow escaped twitter’s attention until someone on 17th Feb. finally brought it up.

Later it was removed in concern of factually incorrect news.

After all this dramatic incident, out of somewhere, Zee News has put the ‘fake’ news.
