  1. HI,

    I am really big fan of Arnab Goswami, i usually see Times channel after every dinner. speaking and questioning about any issue in debate is excellent .most of current issue are debate in TOI.i am personally some qualities from Goswami . i am wish him coming day will be fruitful days.

  2. Good to loose a terror journalist who is stauch supporter of RSS gonda policies. Today terror journalist is dead, now peace will prevail in the media. Times now cannot afford to pay a penality of Rs. 500 crores to Dr. Zakir Naik.

  3. Arnab is under shadow of higest powerful person, no one can defeat him, he is being provided Y security with public tax money, but why? shhhh he is special dont urge. He is having good time let him enjoy

  4. Good for people,who watch Time channel with interest,they wants peace not noise,he never wanted to listen other view points,always put words in other mouth not good for true jurnalism

  5. Arnab’s style of journalism n anchoring has made him larger than life cult image in d public space. He has a large followers n haters An enigmatic personality indeed.

  6. I had stopped watching Times Now after he refused to telecast the ‘Veterans Maha Rally’ over OROP. Now I can restart watching. Same goes to veterans who had called for boycott of Arnab’s channel

  7. (perhaps)..ARNAB aims for the DAIN-SEATER of Hindustan Media industry …and an all-time (like)-SUPER-PRIME MINISTER of the country; –and therefore, has resigned from TIMES NOW.

    In the National Political Arena, those after the magic-invention of loftier political alliances and their success(alliances of political parties at national level like the NDA and UPA to run the governments); —Arnab Goswami is all set for a trial of the same rule.

    So, Mr. Goswami is all set to experiment a similar magic (I feel) -like: “NATIONAL MEDIA ALLIANCE (NMA)”-aiming an indomitable influence over diverse national affairs, with not less than the bulk of an all time-super-Prime Minister.

    …………With all respect to Arnab ji (the game-changer of Indian Media)
