    A no-holds-barred letter by a journalist of his horrid experience working for Republic TV

    For the past year, many journalists have resigned from Arnab Goswami’s Republic TV and no reputed journalist is joining. Why? Many pointed out to PGurus about Arnab Goswami’s abusive and inhuman nature. The latest was the resignation of Republic TV’s Jammu & Kashmir Bureau Chief Tejinder Singh Sodhi. Sodhi’s letter exposes the shocking internal work culture of Republic TV and the abusive nature of Arnab Goswami. As the letter accessed by PGurus is self-explanatory, we are leaving it to the readers to analyze themselves about the sad plight of Journalism in Republic TV. The 3600-word-long letter exposes how Arnab used the services of Reporters to deal with Mumbai Police to hush-up the abetment to suicide case against him. The letter reproduced below exposes the murky affairs inside Republic TV.

    Dear Honey,

    Congratulations on your promotion, trust me getting promoted from HR head to Vice President of the company would have been a major achievement if it was not Republic, but in Republic there is only one supreme leader and his wife who micromanage everything, everybody else is a filler irrespective of the designation they hold.

    I am telling you this out of my personal experience that everything here starts with Arnab and ends with Goswami, you don’t trust me ask this to the previous HR Head. Have you ever seen a company where the entire HR team left in a period of just less than three years? Time is a great teacher and I honestly pray that you don’t have to go through what everyone else who left this company had to go through, but nonetheless my good wishes for your promotion.

    I was asleep when I got a call from Arnab’s wife who before the launch of this company was just a bureau reporter at a pro congress newspaper, she told me that she and Arnab were happy with my work and have decided to promote me, I was surprised what does being happy mean if any promotion has to be given it has to be merit-based. I just wanted to disconnect the phone as the husband and wife kept bragging how kind and generous they were to the staff because at a time when other news outlets were firing people reducing their salaries, they were promoting their staff.

    I was told that with the promotion my responsibilities would increase and I can guide the desk how to go on with stories, this was another surprise to me given the fact that this was exactly what I had been doing for the past two years after every sensible person at the desk had said goodbye. This promotion had a rider and it was that the salary has not been revised for now and it would be done at a later stage, but the supreme leader of republic wanted that we should spread the word as how generous Arnab was to promote the staff. (how should we tell the people as the company had earlier threatened the staff to remove republic from their social media bio), but as you know for him it is image that matters so he wanted me to specially post this on social media. I did that for a day or two and then after I realized my mistake, I deleted that post.

    We all know that Arnab has been making huge money, the people in his cotree also make huge money, but the people who do the actual work are given peanuts. The entire staff of Republic TV had been anxiously waiting for the past two years to get a salary hike. Two years ago, the process of appraisal was started, forms were submitted but then nobody heard back from them. While he did not give the staff any hike, he used that money to launch a Hindi Channel and hired new staff for that, the Republic TV Staff was left high and dry.

    Back to August this year, when  I got the email from you that I have been promoted, I wanted to respond to that email right away but decided to wait for a few days and If you remember it was a few hours prior to my putting up my papers I sent you that email turning down the promotion offer. If you remember I had mentioned in my resignation that I will send you a detailed mail outlining the reasons for my resignation, so here is that email. I had never applied for any Job at Republic TV, I was very much happy and satisfied with the company I was previously working with. It was the day of my wedding in 2017 when someone from Arnab’s office called me to say that Arnab wants to talk to me, I was in Gurudwara waiting for my Pheras to start. I thought someone was playing a prank on me so I snubbed him and asked him to call back after a few days.

    To my surprise I got the call back in a few days as I was made to speak to Arnab on WhatsApp video call, he was very soft and polite and I too was excited because till date we had seen him on Television and this was for the first time we were speaking to each other. He shared with me the reason he left Times Now, he said how he was humiliated by the management on various issues and why he was not allowed to enter the studio for a month, he said that he is going to come up with a channel that would dismantle the Times Now empire, a David that would take on the mighty Goliath.

    He told me that someone had recommended my name and he was keen to have me in his team. He promised that the Republic would revolutionize the TV news industry in the country and would question the people in power and be a channel that be the voice of the downtrodden, basically it would be a complete news channel. I told him that I come from Print background and have no experience in Television, he told me that he wants new faces and that Republic would be an organization which would be run by young professionals and his team would be young journalists only.

    I can tell you with certainty that he is one of the greatest motivational speakers a man like me who had never thought of joining television decided to join his team. When it came to salary negotiation, he told me that for now as he does not have any money, he will hire me on the same package which I was getting at my previous employer with the assurance that as the company starts making money, he would double my salary. After I resigned my previous editor in chief offered me a hike of 20000 if I don’t leave, but being a man of my principles, I requested him to let me go as I had given the commitment to Arnab. Today looking back I regret my decision to join the Republic, he did not revolutionize Journalism, but he killed serious Journalism, reduced it to a joke and somewhere I too feel to be accomplice in that crime.

    The Channel was launched and in its first week it went number 1 in TRP, we all were happy and excited because it was our hard work, the success did not come cheap our sweat and blood was mixed in it. I  was happy that Arnab would acknowledge the contribution of the team, but it was Arnab everywhere, big hoardings came across the country, only acknowledging Arnab. Don’t trust me see the hoardings that came up in Delhi after the Hindi channel came No 1 in the TRP. After an initial few weeks, I realized that the Channel was all about Arnab only and he does not believe in teamwork or team efforts. It took me a few months to realize that for Republic everybody else was just a filler, who fills the vacuum of Arnab’s absence from the screen throughout the day and in the evening the stage is taken over by Arnab.  

    The realization did come that Arnab is a tree, under which no other tree can grow, because he can never tolerate anybody else becoming the face of the channel. He ensured by various means that everybody in the organization feels that everybody else is his rival. An incident happened where the Republic team was not allowed to cover the Congress Press Conference in Delhi, we were asked to protest outside the congress office in our respective states by wearing black bands. I was like wait what this is not the job of a journalist to protest against a political party, but we had no option, so everybody did that.  

    One fine day I get a call from someone on the desk (I won’t name that someone, but he was tortured to such an extent by Arnab that he suffered a major heart attack while sitting in the office) to go and hide near the house of the father of Sunanda Pushkar and then at appropriate time, he would tell me what has to be done. Why hide? They never trusted their staff, so till the last moment, we weren’t told anything. I went to the house and suddenly I was told to enter the house and shove the mic in the mouth of Ms. Pushkar’s elderly father and force him to blame Shashi Tharoor for “killing his daughter”, I tried to do so but when I saw her elderly father, I was in tears, he was weak, was not mentally stable, I told the desk, but they told me that Arnab is furious on me and he wants to get the father on camera to say that Tharoor killed his daughter.

    I refused and left the place, not before speaking to their manservant who spoke good about Mr. Tharoor and Ms. Pushkar’s relationship, but that never went on air. Next day Arnab called me and shouted like anything, he told me that I had let him down, by not getting the father of Ms. Pushkar on camera to blame Mr. Tharoor. This was not the Journalism that I had joined Republic for, reporters were being used to do the hit job on behalf of Arnab.

    A reporter in UP was told to get a chase sequence with the then Chief Minister when he couldn’t he was told to jump the wall of his house to enter the premises and get that done. He said I would be shot by his security; he was pressurized by Arnab’s wife that he resigned the next day. As the money and power started coming in easy, Arnab became more arrogant and as he did not listen to anybody on TV, he did not even listen to his staff. He started humiliating them, shouting at them, abusing them, even physically assaulting them.  

    People who had joined him after leaving their well established and well-paying job at the time when Republic had no present and no future, started leaving him, some left because of the humiliation they were being meted out and some left because they realized that it was not the kind of Journalism that they were doing with him. Slowly everybody started leaving, first, it was the Reporter from Uttar Pradesh he was followed by the one from MP, then West Bengal, Rajasthan, Chandigarh, Bangalore and every other bureau resigned because of the editorial policies. When I speak to them, they say that we joined the Republic to do real Journalism and not to be stooges of a particular political party and do “hit job” on those who don’t agree with that political party.  

    They all realized that Arnab was using his two channels to settle his personal scores with his previous employers, his former colleagues and everybody else who disagreed with his shouting bouts. Almost all leading anchors of Republic left, we still remember how one of the best anchors was dragged out of the studio humiliated, he never returned. The people who were in his core team, who were known to be the right hand and mind of Arnab left him, they all are doing great in their professional life. They all decided not to disclose why they left the Republic, in the words of a former anchor, “he has the platform to build a fake narrative against you”.

    That someone who had recommended my name was Mr. Aditya Raj Kaul, who had met me a couple of times in Jammu and had seen my work. Aditya Raj Kaul was the man behind several exclusive stories on Times Now and then in Republic, when Aditya and I covered the Sunjwa terror attack, I saw how well connected this man was. Arnab was lucky to have him in his team, for the full day it was Aditya who was on the television, from breaking news inputs to exclusive stories to interviews it was Mr. Kaul on Republic. We used to joke about that Arnab should rename the Republic TV as Aditya TV, Arnab was not doing any favor to him, but it was that every single story was being broken by Aditya. He was the backbone of the network, but one fine day we came to know that Aditya has resigned, till date I exactly don’t know what happened between Aditya and Arnab but given now we know Arnab well, it could be anybody’s guess, why he left.

    Arnab being what he is could have never tolerated Aditya overgrowing him, hence Aditya’s exit from the network. After Aditya’s exit, the backbone of the channel was broken, we all tried to take the burden but it was really hard for the entire team to fit in his shoes. We tried our best but Arnab never acknowledged that. Let me take the liberty of taking a few more names, of all who left before you even joined.

    Snehesh Alex Philip, is one of the well-known defense journalists of the country, before joining Republic he was the Pakistan correspondent of the premier Indian News Agency, he left Republic because of Arnab Goswami’s biased editorial policies and Arnab’s behavior towards the staff, even today reporters at Republic lift points from the copies of Snehesh.  

    Hari Haran used to be the Star Anchor of South India before joining Republic, he left in a span of a few months and the reason for him leaving is anybody’s guess. So far in my life, I haven’t come across a man who is as soft-spoken and so dedicated to his work as Parikshit Luthra, we all know why he left. Today he is doing amazing work.

    Sakal Bhat, who was the prime-time anchor at Doordarshan for 17 long years joined Republic, but as Arnab cannot tolerate anybody to overgrown him, he can never tolerate that anybody else had the fan follower more than him, so she was cut to size. She left and once again joined Doordarshan, today again she is a Prime-Time anchor there.

    Pooja Prasanna who left Times Now to Join Republic with Arnab, helped this company grow, she left her family for several weeks to help Arnab set up the studio in Mumbai, she worked day and night but today she is no longer with Republic, I again leave it for you to guess the reason.

    Prema Sridevi who was once considered as the backbone of the network had to leave this organization, I still remember that during one conference call before the launch of the channel, Arnab told the team that he was nothing without Prema.

    The list is endless, and everybody will find mention in my book soon. Will send you the first copy promise. As I write this I have come to know that several people have put up their papers in the past one week, as they were humiliated for not getting Rhea Chakraborty’s interview. While Arnab tried to maintain a moral high ground on TV against the rival channel for airing Rhea’s interview, he humiliated and harassed his own reporters for not getting her for the interview.  

    While today Arnab claims that Republic is the biggest network in the country, the reality is that they don’t have a single reporter in most of the states and in those states where people have resigned, no professional journalist is willing to join. In Delhi you don’t have beat reporters as nobody is willing to join, a crime reporter who cannot differentiate between the Airforce and Navy uniform is covering defense for them. He became webkoof when he aired two-years-old footage of the story that I had reported at that time and then he blamed the army for giving that fake video. He even shared a fake screenshot to show that a senior army officer had given the video to him.

    For the past few days Arnab has been shouting about Nepotism, but I maintain that he should be the last person to do so, his wife (whose only qualification is that she is Arnab’s wife) is heading the operations of both the channels, one of his close stooges who has been recently promoted as Executed Editor News, his wife who was. research assistant has been made the Head of Digital Desk (because she is native of the place from where Arnab’s wife is), another man who is now promoted as Senior Associate editor and covers defense his wife is made input head of Hindi channel and her job is to keep an eye on the staff in Noida office and inform Arnab and his wife as who is sitting on his desk and who is not, so Arnab should stop lecturing people about nepotism.

    Things were a bit different for me, as my only job was to target and speak against Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti which I did, my job to ensure to project them as anti-national and find fault in whatever they say, I did handle it very well. As I wasn’t comfortable speaking lies I changed my focus to defense as defense had always been my forte and I did many exclusive stories as well, but many senior officers used to tell me Tejinder you are a right person in a wrong company.  

    I am a married man, with a daughter and a family to feed, every month I had many EMIs staring at me, so I had to kill my principles to work with Arnab, knowing very well that it is not the Journalism that we are practicing in Republic. The final nail in the coffin happened on August 5, when the interview for which I had been trying for months together was handed over to another reporter because he belongs to the region where from Arnab’s wife is and that this Reporter helped Arnab to hush up the case of abetment to suicide for which he is facing an FIR in Mumbai.  

    Arnab called me soon after his show and started shouting and abusing, but now my tolerance had reached its precipice and I had to give it back to him in the same language with the same vocabulary, maybe with some extra words in Pure Punjabi which he will remember throughout his life. He gave the platform to a motormouth to abuse their fellow panelists, Arnab calls his staff a “piece of Sh*t” uses cuss words like MF and SF for them, so I thought it was opportune time to give him the taste of his own medicine.  

    Trust me from the day I resigned, everybody with whom I once worked or those who still work with Arnab have congratulated me and thanked me for being their voice. You know that some have resigned and some will leave soon. Arnab in the name of hiring young talent is exploiting them, giving them peanuts in the name of job, he is hiring young college graduates or people with zero editorial understanding at the desk so that there is nobody to speak or challenge his editorial policies, which are dictated by the WhatsApp messages from a particular political party.

    Arnab has broken several Labor laws because he hired us for Republic TV (English Channel) then we were forced to work for Hindi channel also and then the dictate came that if you won’t contribute x number of stories a week for the digital desk your salary would be deducted, this threat was against the labour laws as this clause finds no mention in the contract that we signed while joining Republic, even HR team which sent this note can be taken to court of law over this harassment.

    Arnab has no empathy for his staff, as he forced them to come out in the field even if their areas were declared as containment zones, I know how difficult and dangerous it was, but we did follow his dictate.

    I have the company Laptop with me and having been witness to how this company does not settle the dues of the former employees, I will hand over the laptop only once you settled my dues, give me NOC and a relieving letter and if it’s not done in next 20 days I will have no other option but to move to the labour court.

    Though I know that Arnab is a vindictive man and would try his level best to sabotage my career and my future prospects to find a job, but someone had to speak against him, I decided why not that someone should be me. At least by speaking against this man’s exploitation of more youth would stop, those who dream to join Journalism in the hope of doing quality stuff end up with being bonded labourers. 

    I also want to put this on record that if anything bad happens to me or my family, any accident, anything untoward happens to me or my family, Arnab and his wife is to be held responsible for the same. I will be giving this undertaking to my local police station soon.

    BTW Honey Kour, I wish you best of luck and pray that you don’t have to face what the previous HR head had to go through.

    1. He speaks incorrect english… people educated in some US college as he describes himself would never speak incorrect grammar…they would be careful re improper use of words. He does not seem to know that the singular is alumnus…says “he had been an alumni…” invents the word “revolutionarize”… says things like “one of my former colleague” gosh… english journalist of 20 years…? even a 10th std child in my city would speak better… if this is how a 20 year journalist educated in some US place… who had the rare experience of being where a CDS had also been, articulates then can he work for someone like ArnabGoswami? For all we know HR would rate the exit of such individuals as “desired” or “welcome” … Investigative reporters would give an arm/leg to get breaking news for their outlet… this guy seems to be complaining about work… good good if they don’t want to work they should not be complaining about jobs…

      • – even a 10th std child in my city would speak better…-!!
        Would or could or can speak?

        – would never speak incorrect grammar…- !!
        People don’t speak grammar (correct or incorrect). They speak language. Lol

      • Watch Arnab’s show, you will get a headache. Please comment on Arnab’s style of yelling, abusing and bullying panelist who disagree with him .Arnab’s of this world are narcissists, who don’t care how many people they hurt for trp.

    2. Every Organization in Business have their own way of Functioning diametrically apposite to over all perception. Media Organizations although a integral Part of any vibrant Democracy wherein Operate in Typically Autocratic way, Nepotism, Favoritisms, Corruption etc are Routine Affairs. Should one say Everyone has adopted AAP Business Model ???

    3. Shameless fellow wanting to resign at this time. Must be driven by Dirty movie mafias and Politicians with nice money and other things, when Republic is struggling hard to bring out Cinema mafias, Politicians and Shushant murderers. Shame on you!! Try and learn few qualities of Arnab to be a responsible journalist!!

    4. What is the point of running the story. There are a few ups and downs in any profession and life in general. What the reporter has gone through may or may not entirely true (there is a hint of exaggeration when we are emotional) or it could just be one off case. Taking down a guy that is standing for the right causes is shameful! Then when all “right” guys are down, you lament of the mighty and powerful “left”.

      Honestly, I have been reading and following Pgurus from the time of inception and often re-directed by Mr.swamy’s tweets. But the journalism and the quality has come down very much. Time to introspect, not just for republic but for pgurus too.

        • Timing of this Article makes everyone suspect the motive behind this Article.

          Author of this Article is shown as Team PGurus – without naming specific individual

          Still there must be someone from your Team who did initiate & propose this Article!!

          Team PGurus should seriously introspect & investigate the ORIGINATOR of this Article & the circumstances, reasons for his proposig this Article

          Here I am not contesting the Merits of this Article or questioning the credibility of Mr. Sodhi’s Allegations against Arnab – because I did not feel it necessary to examine them in detail at this juncture.

          What Arnab is doing with his Channel & how is treating his staff is totally a private affair & I do not find anything conscience -shaking in the acts of Arnab.

          But this Article raises serious suspicion in me to think whether Team PGurus is trying to weaken the ‘detractors of Rhea Chakraborty / Bollywood Mafia’ using the Print Media – exactly in the same way Rajdeep was engaged in a ’50 crore shield-Rhea Interview’ using the Electronic Media.

          A mere evasive STATING THE FACTS reply will not convince anyone. I would expect Dr. Swami or Mr. Sree Iyer or Mr. Gurumurthy to personally respond to this.

          • these facts need not be stated at all… some random employee exit is fact…???goodness what is this..? employee complaint against employer is at best a one-sided plaintive opinion… how can it ever be fact – you guys who keep saying things about your medium should seriously introspect about publishing such grievances that don’t do anyone any good….or is it just because it is Arnab Goswami… people are not fools like before… we also know how to assess and differentiate between people in the public eye…

      • When they are reporting about Congress or opposition, it’s the gospel truth. But anyone that shows pro-BJP people/media in bad light is poor reporting or not accurate!

    5. Work culture is more or less similar in many corporates, of course with few exceptions. Media industry, being more demanding, work culture may be comparatively harsher than the other industries. Any start-up company will be controlled by owner in the initial period and control can not handed over to new comers irespective of his or her experience and there is nothing new about it. Having said that, one should trust the staff and respect their potential. Humiliation in any case can not be endorsed and this may become the cause of losing good talents from Republic TV.

    6. What goes around comes back. Prannoy Roy and his wife had their run and rolled a bundle calling themselves as paragon of virtues backing the Congress regime. Now, we see Arnab, coming on the show from the far right side supporting the other team, getting in the mire. By the same token, Dr. Subramanian Swamy is no great Hindu Righteous and Truthful Saint. He has been a cunning fox changing sides between Warring camps in national politics at Delhi and between local Dravidian warlords in Tamilnadu. He had a dirty muddy dip in Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination,DMK, AIADMK clashes and dabbled in Srilankan LTTE fiasco. P. Gurus should remain upfront and question the dark side of Dr. Subramanian Swamy and be unbiased and remain seeking Truth.

      • Namaste Dr. Venkat Gopalakrishnan,

        Dr. Swamy fought for truth & hence stands tall. It is immaterial how many times he changed his views or stand – which are normal in every person with a thinking mind, unlike the DMK party members who seems to be lost in time.
        Whether he has a hand or leg or head in Rajiv Gandhi assasination – it does not matter, for Rajiv Gandhi was no God & used by foreigners to rob India of its true value.

        Take pride in the cunning fox Dr. Swamy for his survival & inspiring speeches.

    7. Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Absolutely Corrupts. Both Navika Kumar and Rahul Shivshankar working for the TOI look well poised, balanced, putting the participants at ease, conducting their investigative journalism in an amicable manner. I am glad Maroof Raza did not go on Arnab’s Band wagon. I always wondered why Tamil based anchor, Hariharan, decided to go back to Chennai after a brief stint with Arnab at the Republicworld. Arnab’s half life as an investigative journalist is running out and what happened to Burkha Dutt on the other side of the fence is happening now for Arnab.

    8. The gentleman is very angry. all successful companies do have a leader/captain to succeed. Hope this man gives some credit for Arnab. His grievances are many, not enough recognition. hates to listen the madam, and is very unhappy arnab’s TRP is growing. He forgets to see how all the opposition parties hate arnab. If Arnab is not paying good competitive salaries to his employees, he should take the issue seriously. Too bad PGGurus is giving so much space and credibility to this angry young man. After reading all his rantings, I don’t feel he deserved so much coverage by PGGurus.

    9. I am a Fan of PGurus for Last many years.After going thru this Article I prefer to deleate PGurus from My Saved and Loved Blogs.Good Bye.

    10. Not sure why PGurus has been after some fellows who’re on the same side overall.

      Calling ourselves “right-wing” is not accurate, nevertheless people do change their minds, and use power ladders to get ahead.

      Fact is Arnab has been in support of the Hindutva cause for the most part – maybe it’s b/c he’s just following the trend. It’s possible in the past he was pressured by those he worked for (NDTV, Times Now, etc.)

      He could be a simple new trader, but point is for last many years he’s been quite vocal on many of the right cases.

      We need to continue to uniting people in the fight, rather than playing politics in our own camp.

      As far as having a tough/aggressive work environment, I’m sure all journalism houses have that, and even other industries, especially law and investment banking. It’s not ideal, and it should get better, but that shouldn’t take away from the cause.

    11. Boss is always right. Whether Arnab shouts, cries or abuses , he has guts to take on left liberals who had a free run till his channel was aired. Gone are the days of Sardesai, Barkha Dutt, who peddled false narrative on intolerance, Islamic phobia, secularism and went out of the way to interview urban naxals.

      Like politicians jumping their parties, we have seen anchors Criscrossing news channels, but none had the courage to start their own channels, but Arnab took a gamble. Running business in India is so dangerous, the owners in most cases have wives as partners. His taking up issues on Palghar incident, Sushant case, PMC case and exposing RaGa are laudable. True , he shouts but that is how Indians behave and after all he is Indian .

      Never judge a channel through the ownership. Listen to the contents. If contents are BS, channel will close. Present day umpires are social media. News papers are now down. Even godi TV media channels will suffer. Arnab is one guy who called the name of Congress and NCP leader, which no other journalists could do. He is moving ahead because he target audience is silent Indian majority.

    12. Honestly speaking I never liked this guy called Arnav, since his days with Times Now. He is a biased person and an opportunist and selfish. Now he shouts about the Nation and patriotism. So let me ask, what he was while with Times Now? Many a time, I switch on to his channel but gets quickly bored with rants and shouting and change the channel. I seriously doubt its ranking because no sane person will tolerate the noise in his channels.
      Disclaimer:- The view expressed is my own as an independent citizen of independent India. I do not have any political affiliation, ambition, or bias.

    13. First Prannoy Roy and his wife , now Arnab and his wife. I dare you Aranb to interview or debate with Dr. Swamy. He was fully showing of when he launched republic so much that he was acting as though he would confront Dr. Swamy on what happens at Times Now ( in debate on Srilankan fishermen where Dr. Swamy smashed him and ig Dr. Swamy didn’t do anymore debates with Arnab after that ). But what is he doing ? Just cowardice. He does not have the guts to face Dr. Swamy although Dr. Swamy is ready to face and forgive him if he apologizes. He’s channel does not address a number of issues which may result in showing BJP in a bad light. Absolute bias and cowardice.

    14. Tejenderji, hats off to you for putting it on B&W, Wish i had the “Balls” to do so, when i had gone through more or less similar humiliation,torture,abusive language. Which would have made my life more stable. This is how the work culture in INDIA is Top MGMT does not use their kidneys & end up firing the lower bottom team. Bunch of Jokers fit for nothing.

    15. Tejenderji, hats off to you for putting it on B&W, Wish i had the “Balls” to do so, when i had gone through more or less similar humiliation,torture,abusive language. Which would have made my life more stable. This is how the work culture in INDIA is Top MGMT does not use their kidneys & end up firing the lower bottom team. Bunch of Jokers.

    16. The viewers and readers of MSM is not aware or concerned about the internal work style and office politics. As long as the employees get their pay cheque, they should feel happy. Arnab is running the channel without any investment from foreign funded agencies. Tat must be appreciated. The revenue from advertisement alone cannot meet all the cost.

      For over a decade, the bread and butter of Timesnow channel was the The Newshour with Arnab Goswami. Once upon a time the educated class relied on NDTV as their primary source of information. Barkha Dutt’s show “The Buck Stops Here” at 9pm was also popular. With Arnab’s show gaining popularity, the viewers totally allocated the 9pm slot for TimesNow. Hence she was forced to shift her program to the 8pm slot, the debate show “Left Right and Centre” at 9.30 pm and a plain vanilla news bulletin at 9 pm.

    17. I absolutely don’t watch mainstream media, but I am aware of what’s happening there. This is the first time in the history of Indian Media that a non-left leaning media network has become No.1. So, this slander had to start. Republic had been at the forefront of fight against bollywood-politics-mafia nexus in Sushant case. If not for Republic, this case would have been still talked about only on YouTube, like Sunanda Pushkar case. I have met a lot of guys, like me, whose parents didn’t even knew who Arnab was and now they wait for his show at 7pm. I am shocked at this sudden rise in popularity.

      This letter is just the start. More such campaigns are going to come with great force. Whole left-ecosystem survives on perception management and TV Media is its most crucial part. Wait for some time, some press-body will take cognizance of this letter and start prosecuting Republic. Defaming and shaming of Republic will start and much more. I don’t know how Republic will survive, since the clout of leftists is huge in Indian media. For instance, PGurus simply copy pasted this letter, without any critical analysis. Although there are several flaws in this letter, but none are highlighted as if PGurus is like Reddit. I am highly disappointed!

      Even a retard can notice how this slander campaign is similar to the campaigns run against other non-left successful personalities, like Kangana Ranaut, Baba Ramdev, etc. This whole letter is drenched with signatures of left slander campaign.

    18. We may write unlimited number of articles, the situation is not going to change as long as our legal system and ethos of life goes back to sanathana way.

      A devout sanathani, is supposed to earn in dharmic manner, and follow varna ashrama dharmas, then moksha may come to him based on the deeds.

      We have adopted a stupid legal system in which Courts don’t punish people even for blatant lies under oath. High time we connect to our past properly and have peace

    19. Nothing shocking.
      Public life in India has descended to such a low level.
      The rot has permeated through to the bottom
      The stench is nauseating.
