Government official gets into it with local CNN anchor on Twitter

The Indian minister of Human Resource Development Smriti Irani got into on Twitter with a local CNN affiliate anchor, after the network appeared to indicate that they had some sort of interview exclusive with the HRD minister.

In a now-deleted tweet, CNN News 18, which just last week changed its name from CNN-IBN, said:

But Irani took issue with that, because she had not spoken with local CNN anchor Bhupendra Chaubey, as the above tweet appeared to indicate.

But Chaubey responded that his program wasn’t quoting her out of context, but was instead re-airing a portion of her interview with another CNN News 18 journalist.
