The selfless #SudhaBharadwaj has spent 3 years in jail after #ArnabGoswami’s nauseating witchhunt. Now, Bombay Police are returning the favour by outing tens of pages of WhatsApp conversations in the #BARCGhotala which reveal how the media is a key player in ‘The Grand Project’.
The superhit Friday release. #BARCGhotala
When #ArnabGoswami was first implicated in #TRPGhotala, India’s brain-dead TV gasbags were all triumphantly jumping around in glee, running the news for days. Has the appearance of the initials “AS”—and the names “Doval”, “Smriti” and “Javdekar”—taken the wind out of the blimps?

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.
