at the behest of the
political dispensation."
Shortly after #ArnabGoswami plea was listed for today, Senior Adv Dushyant Dave raised questions on the selective listing of cases by SC Registry. In a rebuttal of sorts, Goswami's wife, Samyabrata stated why did Dave keep silent during @VinodDua7 & @pbhushan1 urgent hearings

Today, television rating agency BARC has paused rating of news channels for next 3 months. I believe that, news channels should never be a part of any commercial rating system. News can't be a commercial product like a soap or soap opera. @BARCIndia #TRPFraud
TRP is a terrible whip which scared every editor in newsroom. It affects free flow and analysis of the news. It also promotes unhealthy competition among media organisations to make the news saleable and entertaining. That's a huge danger for democracy and citizens rights.
Let there be no rating system for news channels. Let advertising agencies decide their own choice of channels to promote their products. There are dozens of alternative digital platforms where an advertisement agency can rate and analyse the footprints of the news channels.

A bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud to hear Republic TV's CFO Shiva Sundaram's plea against the summons issued by Mumbai Police to the news channel in connection with the alleged Television Rating Point (TRP) scam.

The plea has challenged the October 9 summons, issued to the CFO of Republic Media Network. The CFO citing the plea in the top court had urged the Mumbai Police to pause its probe in the role of the network and its employees briefly. @MumbaiPolice
In an affidavit filed before the SC the @MumbaiPolice has said that Republic TV is attempting to turn the FIR in the TRP scam case into a “media spectacle”, and that rights under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution cannot act be used as a shield against commission of a crime.

A thread: My personal experience with #TRPscam:
(1) It’s been rigged in India for at least 30 years
(2) Not just @Republic but many channels benefit
(3) Scam value is up to Rs. 25,000 cr a year
(3) Don't blame Republic, but @WPP that owns @Mindshare @GroupMworldwide @Ogilvy
In early 90s I lived in HK & helped MTV launch in India (Quickgun Murugan times).

I moved to the US. Was then hired in 1999 to come back to India to try turn around rival Channel V (We Are Like This Only times)

As we geared for re-launch, we agonized on distribution
Back then India didn’t have too many satellite dish households. Majority got channels from the friendly neighbourhood cable mafioso.

Most TVs then couldn’t carry 100s of channels and we desperately wanted to be on prime or sub-prime band so people could at least receive us

18 May 2015, most beautiful day of my life, as I was "sharing 3hr flight seat with my inspiration- #ArnabGoswami".

Today after 5 years, I'm ashamed of myself to have you as my inspiration!

#RepublicTV #TRPSCAM #TRPFraud #Republic
Just to clear the air- By today I mean series of events, including todays! Starting from "Suspicious Establishment of Republic TV"

There's a huge difference b/w "Nationalism" & "Polarisation", which is being used interchangeably these days. While Arnab is doing the latter one!
2 mins of silence for those abusing me and still have faith in Arnab!

God bless you all!

You've been turned narcissist and megalomaniac, thanks to these govt. sponsored channels!

Don't worry "truth" has an immense power, you'll realise it someday!
