Note for Vote sting: CNN-IBN clarifies its stand on the tapes

Amid the high drama witnessed in Parliament during the July 22 Trust Vote, three BJP MLAs caused a furor in the House when they waved bundles of rupees, alleging they were given the money by the ruling coalition to abstain from voting against the Trust motion. Claims were made of a sting operation by CNN-IBN and the entire exchange of money caught on tape. Despite nine days passing, there are no signs of these tapes. So, where are these tapes? CNN-IBN clarifies.

In a press statement issued by CNN-IBN, the channel has clarified that they had chosen not to telecast the story yet because they did not feel that the story was complete. “CNN-IBN’s rigorous editorial protocol demands that even a hidden camera shoot is absolutely water-tight. In this particular story, there were many loose ends that needed to be cross-checked, corroborated and investigated further before the story could be aired,” the press statement said.

CNN-IBN added that all the raw, unedited footage was placed before the Lok Sabha Speaker within 24 hours of the Parliament fracas and claimed that not a single frame had been edited in any form.

The Speaker has subsequently ordered an inquiry, which media reports suggest, is to be completed by August 11.
