New  Delhi  — The New York Times has rubbished a photoshopped front page of the newspaper carrying the headline ‘Last, best hope for earth’ with the picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The New York Times (NYT) on Wednesday said in a Tweet, “This is a completely fabricated image, one of many in circulation featuring Prime Minister Modi.”

The image had been shared many times and was being passed off as real news on NYT. Though it was clear that the image was morphed as the date showed an incorrect spelling of “September”, it was still shared widely.

Some said NYT need not to issue a statement as it was evident that the image was fake while others said that  the newspaper’s clarification demolished the purpose of those who created the fake image to give a false impression about Prime Minister Modi’s popularity and importance globally.

Indian media covered PM’s Modi obsessively but the visit did not get space in the US press.  Modi held a joint Press Conference with Vice President Kamala Haris who underlined the importance of democracy.
