Love Him Or Hate Him, But You Just Can’t Ignore Him !!
This is how Arnab Goswami is. He is hated by many of the Indian Journalists because he is not the one who does journalism only for the TRPs. “He shouts on the debate, he never let the panellists speak” this is how he has been accused of by the media presstitutes. But he speaks for the Nation, and when it comes to Nationalism, he can’t hear something against the Nation. He is a true Nationalist and he always stands for the Nation.
At a Russian conference last year, Arnab Goswami gave the best ever reply to western media. He said “The hegemony of Western media must end. The Western media has had it too good for too long, and it has ruined the balance of power that is required, not just in politics and society.” he said.
Further, he pulled out the figures about the Indian and Western media. Citing someone else at the conference, saying “91% of Indians follow “cross-border” news, so Indians are most interested about the world. The least interested in the world are the Americans and the British. Only 44-46% of people follow “cross-border” news.
“But US and UK together contribute 74% of the source of global news, whereas all of Asia contributes 3%. If I had to summarise that in one line, it basically says that Indians are the least insular people, most open-minded, Americans are the most insular people, but they have complete dominance over the global narrative in terms of news.”
The video is worth watching. Watch below how Arnab countered the western media:
