Arnab Goswami -2.0- Attack Of His Clones





Arnab Goswami may have left Times Now. But the media will find it extremely difficult if not impossible to rid itself of the banana republic genre of mediocre journalism created by him.
Arnab Goswami


Arnab Goswami may have left Times Now. But the media will find it extremely difficult if not impossible to rid itself of the banana republic genre of mediocre journalism created by him.

Yes, when Arnab Goswami left Times Now, people did breath a huge sigh of relief. The viewer believed that one could now finally hear what the various panelists comprising of politicians, experts and other journalists would have to say. That , finally, the viewer would get to form their own opinions, instead of judge, jury and advocate Arnab.

Yes, given that people can see through the malicious and subtle manoeuvres of Karan Thapar, Rajdeep Sardesai, Barkha Dutt and others like them who kill the show by asking panelists one sided questions, but their shows are still watchable since, sometimes the panelists who have different points of view (than that which the paid journalist anchors are trying to drive home) are able to respond... sometimes.

But with Arnab you could only hear Arnab, his Newshour,  a mindnumbing echo chamber which would put (Hitler's) Goebbels' blitzkrieg to shame.

The Nation wanted to know so many things but ended up knowing nothing more than what Arnab wanted the Nation to know.

Unfortunately given the high (manipulated?) TRPs of his show initially, there were a host of progeny's trying their best to emulate him. He had knowingly or unknowingly created an army of mutated carbon copies of himself, anchors who still continue to haunt the Channel discussions, mesmerized by the sound of their own voices (vices?) and killing the potential subtleties and nuances which a live T.V. channel debate can bring to the screen.





I am talking about Nidhi Razdan, Padmaja Joshi, Navika Kumar, Anand Narsimhan and to a slightly lesser degree Rahul Shivshankar and Rahul Kanwal among the prominent headaches. Nidhi Razdan is now a days leading from the front on arguing recklessly like an immature spoiled teenager. A fresh graduate from the Arnab Institute of Slander, her only ability on her show, is to be able to manage to blurt out lies and fallacious statements with no application of mind and a straight face. She comes across as a strong anti India crusader, who may continue with her anti India campaign even if she is the sole survivor of an apocalypse which obliterates everyone on Earth. Padmaja joshi, an ex alumni of the same institute has now become Professor of MuckSlingology.

These T.V. anchors, with an ego taller than Mt. Everest, seek to insult, rebuke and speak over the opinions of several renowned politicians, experts, advocates and activists. They forget, that the viewer has tuned in more to watch and hear the opinions of the panelists rather than hear the ear shattering hollow monologues of the anchors.

India has progressed significantly. So have its institutions. Its time the Television media caught up and gave it's audience the level of sophistication they deserve.

  1. I like BJP also but Arnab Goswami behaves like their pet dog on his show. He should show objectivity instead of behaving like a paid anchor. The mindless cacophony on his show has degraded the standard of debate. I show my children his program to teach them how not to debate. He epitomises phony journalism and should get award for top fake news anchor by self declaring himself the judge of his Kangaroo Court

    1. I dont know why other news anchor try to become his clone. Rahul Shivshankar can perfectly anchor new show in his original 9x style but he destroys his new time now show by trying to be copycat.Arnabs bungling hystrionics makes karan thapar look good.

    2. He is simply spoiling clean image of BJP by favoring them. Great party like BJP does not need certificate from this idiotic anchor and India does not need his mindless shouting to solve the country's problem.

      @Ajit Tiwari, you are wrong. BJP is in power purely because of Arnab Goswami. Even Amit shah cannot match Arnab power and strategic thinking. Arnab should replace Amit Shah for Gujrat and 2019 elections

  2. It shows what happens when undeserving opportunistic person gets fame and success too quickly. There were many journalist at backend better than him but he got rid of them.Indians should raise level of debate and watch some interesting debates on Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha T.V. The same panellists behave themselves over there and provide good insight and knowledge

  3. Sar, we must do cbi investigation into whether Arnab Goswami is taking drugs/medication just before the show to make him (mis)behave like a lunatic on his show and start insulting everyone. Psychological evaluation may be helpful also.

    1. Priya Sahgal from 9x. She asks tough questions gently and then lets the panelists either answer correctly or make fool of themselves

  7. Arnabs Goswami's show epitomises the decay and rot in journalism. His deaf dialogue is a relection of how self obsessed society has become

  8. It is India's misfortune that it lacks professional T.V. anchors and are forced to watch Arnab Goswami and Anjana Bhargava.

  9. I feel that many shows like Arnab Goswami news hour allow t.v. anchors to keep on repeating lie after lie or provide incomplete information from the safety and comfort of their air conditioned studios behind glass t.v screens.They have abused article 21. Government should take appropriate steps to stop the carnage of truth and facts

    On many occasions I have seen Arnab Goswami show factually incorrect but he never bothered to issue apology or correction.Hence I feel Arnab Goswami highly irresponsible on his show

  14. Arnab Goswami systematically tarnished the image of AAP and Congress. Even Burkha Dutt, Karan Thapar and Rajdeep Sardesai could not save Congress. Arnab is BJP 's star campaigner
