The Times News Channel and Arnab Goswami Need a Kick up their pants

Arnab goswami thinks he is the monarch of the news world. He shouts and rants and skins a news item even if dead. I wonder what he has achieved and I think the first man who needs investigation himself is Arnab Goswami. One has only to see that he is obsessed with the cases of Sushma Swaraj and Vasundhara Raje to the detriment of other cases.

A news channel is supposed to be balanced and at the same articulate the social changes around a nation. Unfortunately Arnab Goswami has failed as he is obsessed with sometimes infructuous  cases. I agree that corruption cases are important, but surely Arnab can also highlight other news items , especially that affect the Indian nation's security.

In this case Arnab is so intent in his own megalomaniac dreams that an agitation like One Rank One Pension does not figure in his and the Times channel News hour.  He has no time for it and yet this is a factor affecting morale of the armed forces.  The forces are the sentinels of India and now the ex servicemen are agitating for parity in pay and allowances and better pensions.  Yet Arnab, intent like the Pied Piper of Hamlin is on his own net. His channel has not only let the forces down  but made the Times channel itself into a shouting match. Is this news?.

That is the reason I say that Arnab Goswami himself needs investigation and I am aware that many skeletons will come out that will show this man in true light.
