The “Dainik Jagran” newspaper in India has had controversy due to accusations that they allowed politicians to send them money in exchange for editorials and other pieces in the newspaper that showed these politicians in a positive light. Other newspapers like “Dainik Bhaskar,” “Dainik Hindustan” and “Hindustan Times” have been accused of this type of corruption as well. None of the papers admitted any wrongdoing, but several politicians have admitted purchasing special packages that gave them better coverage in the paper. The World Association of Newspapers claims that Jagran is the largest daily newspaper in the world. The site claims that a BBC-Reuters survey voted the site as the most credible source of news as well.
