Sounds to me like Microsoft is upset that India might have a lot of honest independent coverage that can't be controlled to a narrative it likes. Poor Microsoft, poor giant international conglomerate. My heart bleeds for them.

Don't think you've seen any fake Indian news mate. You have to be dumber than a hammer to believe it. And that's kind of why it works. Targets the loonies in the bunch that can hardly read anyway. Quite a bit of those around in that part of the world.
