NEW DELHI: Sumana Nandy regrets her association with the rogue organisation, headed by controversial editor and anchor Arnab Goswami.
‘I am ashamed for having worked with Arnab Goswami’s channel,’ a former Republic TV journalist outraged against her ex-employer, she said in a Facebook post.
Sumana resigned from her job alleging “biased” reporting on the assassination of the 55-year-old editor Gauri Lankesh by her “bosses”.
Sumana wrote on Facebook that: …
I have always been proud of the organisations I have worked with in my extremely small career in journalism. But today I am ashamed! An ‘independent’ news organisation is now batting for a rogue government. And openly so.
A journalist is murdered in cold blood days after receiving death threats from the BJP-RSS cadres. And instead of questioning these murderers, you question the opposition? Where is the integrity? Where are we heading? Some ‘journalists’ are even celebrating the massacre (that she brought it on herself.) Well, yes! This is what happens in Saudi Arabia and North Korea. We are just a few more deaths away from catching up with these countries.
If the fourth pillar sells its soul, where will the society go?
We have failed you, ma’am. All I know, you are probably in a much much better place.
P.S.: For whatever it is worth and whatever significance it has, I have decided to not put Republic TV as one of my employers on my CV and on social media. I regret my association with this rogue organisation.
