While I appreciate and applaud his stand, I condemn his style. He screams and screams and screams.. he has not let one word from someone else come across.. I don';t even know if that student was genuine.. A debate is TWO sided conversation not a monologue.. Arnab is a fool.

Have long stopped watching his show (in fact, have almost completely stopped watching TV, except for cricket and the odd political interview).

Guests come to his show, get insulted, they're not allowed to get a word in - and he is the final authority on everything under the sun.

They probably get paid very well to be on the show - it's the price of humiliation, not participation.

Sadly, people seem to enjoy watching his show - it's entertainment for many to see him shut people up.

He thrives because there is a market for his product.

Hate arnab all you want but in this case he came out genuine with passion and on Facebook & Twitter it's gone viral. All are saying the same thing,

"I hate arnab but in this case he got my respect"

According to raja, only minorities & sickulars have freedom of speech but taboo for majority.

If anyone in USA burn US flag & speak in support of ISIS & take a street procession in support of bin laden & burn buses & government vehicles & damage public property as they don't believe his crime and speak that he is unlawfully executed without proof etc nonsense then they would be sent to guantanamo with escort.

These sickulars does the same thing in India as they burn Indian flag, take street procession damaging public property, talk in favor of afzal guru & kasab and claim that they are unlawfully executed, denounce broad daylight video evidence of their terror activities just because they are minority Muslims etc bullshit.

Well I agree in this case he did the right thing.. but NO he did no come out as genuine..He was the same scream-at-top-his-lung-louder-than-everyone-and-don't-let-others-speak '. My point is, if you are going to call some one for a discussion, if they have a viewpoint opposing you and however disgusting, shoot them AFTER they have spoken or DON'T give them a platform and then gag them.. You don't want their views out (and so shout them down and come across as a winner in the debate) is stupid.. don't invite them at all.

He would have done a greater service if he let those blokes speak.. that way you know what their agenda is and once that is out in the open then counter them with whatever.. abuse, scolding, screaming, tantrums and beat them down.. that is fine.. but just bringing them there, gagging them and then declaring yourself the winner of a debate is disgusting. But then that is ARNAB for you.. a congi boot licker.

YOU DON'T TALK OVER ME.. YOU DARE NOT CUT ME WHEN I AM TALKING ABOUT LANCE NAIK.. YOU CALL THAT PROTEST.. I CALL THAT SEDITION..

well what was it that you were calling sedition and him a protest did not come across.. infact with that clip, we never got to know who he was, what was his claim to fame, how he is related to JNU or for that matter what he had to do about the entire thing.. He might as well have kept a teddy bear there and screamed at it!!

No, I don't think this outburst from him is preplanned or staged. He is passionate and pissed off genuinely with compassion towards the siachin soldier that is fighting for life. You should be picking on those "idiot" guests, not him.

Sure he can be passionate.. no problem there but when you are on a Tele program and you are the moderator, there is a decorum that is to be maintained. Not just this one.. ANY ARNAB program you will see him overflowing with passion.. beating up his guests..

He is just a pretender.. no respect from me for him no matter what or how true his outburst. Call it the wolf wolf syndrome.. but naa arnab is like howard stern.. only howard was entertaining and funny.. this bloke is just disgusting.

I am as angry as he is about those JNU dudes.. I would advocate jailing them for treason and summarily shot but if I had a program, I would not invite them in the pretext of 'lets find out what your agenda is' and going on and NOT doing just that.

The last person who I would want representing my country/agenda/interests would be AG.. and heck if he invites me I will ask for a switch to mute him if I were to be answering his questions. You ask question.. I mute you and answer and then unmute you to have your go at me.. simple.

First of all, let me clarify that I wrote the previous comment without seeing the video.

Now that I have seen the video, I'd like to say the following:

1) I totally agree with SL here. IMO, Arnab just plays to the galleries - and he is really good at that. There was a time (some years ago) when I thought he was genuine. Then I realised he is the ultimate "populist" anchor - he has a very good pulse of his audience, and plays exactly the right notes. No wonder he is so popular. But popularity and sincerity are two different things.

2) Like SL has said, Arnab doesn't give his guests a chance to speak. So what's the point in having them there? Let them express their views - THEN, call out their lies, or hypocrisy or whatever. At least that way the audience hears more than just Arnab's version.

Raja as always says his PREJUDICED opinion without knowing what everyone is talking about.

You clearly missed what is said above.

I hate arnab but in a this case he is right.

Why find about something negative always? That too missing the obvious?

What has he said that is so special?

It's like saying "orange is a bright colour".

Obviously, Indians want to pay respect to Lance Naik Hanumanthappa. Did anybody say anything disrespectful about him?

Then why should Arnab suddenly explode and make it look like others are disrespecting him? So Arnab can interrupt everyone on this earth and if someone tries to get a word in, suddenly Arnab goes all ballistic, trying to make it look like that interruption is disrespectful towards Hanumanthappa.

What sheer trash is this!

A routine situation - but Arnab tries to get TRPs even from this.

Why not?

He had a voice and its heard by millions of Indians.
What he says is more important than what you or me say as its not heard by other than you and me.
As a person, he can either take a stand against a issue or for an issue.

When he erred on judgement, he gets publicly mocked to no end.
When he get it right, he should be patted on the back, why ignore it saying he has a bad reputation etc?
Whoever calls a spade as a spade for the first time gets my approval, even though the same person erred it for zillion times earlier.

Hatred towards a person should not overshadow any issue on hand and cloud your judgement.

Its "HIS SHOW" and he has every right to run the show as he likes it. His employer gave him this right to him to run this show as he likes it.
Its not first time he DEMAND the guests to listen to what he says and not to interrupt him.
If you are invited you have a choice of rejecting that.
Many folks are invited and took control of the debates and made arnab look like buffoon. [Ex: modi & americai]
If JNU idiots act like idiots for an idiotic cause, they got treated like idiots by arnab.
Its nothing to do with arnab & his outbursts.

Just because they are arguing with arnab does not mean they are automatically right, just because you hate arnab hence he must be wrong without knowing whats being discussed whatsoever.

I will give a reason why Arnab is popular inspite of his constant shouting / screaming.

Most of the media outlets in India , both TV and news media are left / liberal starting with NDTV and CNN / IBN. These outlets always try to undermine Hindus. There is a huge section of Indian electorate (the youth) who are centrist or right of centre. They are the ones who are the driving force behind the BJP resurgence and coming to power.

Arnab has built his image as a centrist and he picks up topics that are holy cows for left liberals. That is why his voice his heard.

My 2 cents.

May be he is a nice chap.. but he is IRRITATING.. bugger needs an enema and that too fast.

Bloody hell he stinks up the room where the TV is on.. if he wants his point to be heard, he must let people be able to tolerate him.. His voice and his arrogance is so sharp that I have to switch channels in less than 3 seconds or risk losing bowel control.. How can one come to any kind of conclusion as to whether is is left right or center or even sane for that matter?

And GS.. chup be.

Somebody is watching too much TV, not just you. TRP ratings don't lie.
If majority of Indians hate arnab they would switch tv to another channel among 100s we see in India. There is something in this show that millions watch, not just you. The show is not scrapped for a long time & arnab still got the job. He is like a bad Jamesbond movie, (ex:specter ) where everyone say it's bad but all go and see it, knowing fully well that this movie sucks as told by their friends.


BTW, mission accomplished. ;)

Actually they do..here in India there is NO way to collect reliable data in that matter. Just repeat an article 'Arnab scored 25 or whatever number you want this day that day this debate that debate' in some papers for a few weeks and you are in the game. Does not cost much either

Ofcourse TRP in India is all fake.. how many places have digital cable access in India to give you a true number? In most small towns, there is a local town guy cable operator who just comes and hooks you up. You have a cable box but that is ANALOG.. and there are billions of channels all pushed in.. nothing like subscribing and shit.. and guess what no one knows who is watching what in that segment.. that segment is over 60% of the population.

And there are places where there is NO cable tv coverage at all.. only dish works and most do not have the money for it.. and guess what.. the ones who have it opt for FREE DTH service which has NO ARNAB on it..

DOH!!

With a given demographic, if someone can see a show on a particular channel, if aranab's show beat other shows from the same channel on viewership, that would be enough to say it got more followers irrespective of the baloney you mentioned above.
duh!

Within a demography TRP makes no sense.. i.e it is like saying lifebouy is the most popular soap among youth aged 20-25 who are employed in IT sector as tech supports, usually working nightshifts, who prefer nokia over samsung and spicy food.

It was a recent outburst by some idiot.. I represent 80% of indians who oppose RSS.. so if there are 1000000 'indians' of them '10 indians'
oppose RSS, you represent 8 of them (so in other words, you do not represent the miniscule 10 entirely too!!).. and that is something to be taken seriously?

It sure make sense. On tv channel viewership forTRP all you get at first is BIG DATA. you need to use data analytics to get what you are trying to get. thus your reporting need to be customized for an issue. Ofcourse it's random sampling when specific tracking machines are set for "ideal family" at random that has different age groups of family members. 8pm to 11pm is prime time for all channels. Given a demographic and language for a specific time 10 odd channels air their best tv show on various channels. Most folks pick what they like the most to see live and setup DVR etc for record and watch later or wait for rerun time that suit them. It's commonsense to figure out what show is better among 10 channels telecasted at the same time slot.

Coming to the point on hand, arnab show has consistent tendency among different channels airing same demographic & language as having an upper hand where people chose to watch arnab show over other alternatives for that time slot. If he got over 10 rank, by now arnab could have been history but it's not the case.

This is going viral on what's app

After Rajnikanth, Alok nath & Alia bhatt, it's time for Arnab Goswami series.....

After creating this complex world, GOD was worried, who will decide what is RIGHT and what is WRONG ?
So he created ARNAB GOSWAMI.

Arnab Goswami might probably be the only guy in this world to fight with his wife & win

If we could place a mini turbine inside Arnab Goswami's throat, the resultant electricity can power the entire Times group building.

Arnab Goswami is inversly proportional to Manmohan Singh

If you find Arnab Goswami's pic with his mouth closed, then that camera has a very good shutter speed.

Arnab Goswami is fluent in English & weak in grammar becoz he does not use full stop or comma

From the moon you can see the great wall of china and hear Arnab Goswami shouting "The nation wants to know"

Proposed airport near Times Now studio cancelled as noise from newshour could weaken the structure and intercept signals

When Arnab Goswami says "I will speak now" , everyone looks puzzled , wondering who was speaking till now

Whats the similarity between Arnab Goswami & google?
Both interrupt you before you complete the sentence

"Arnab Goswami's son seems to have tattooed on his hand 'Mera baap Shor hai'..

Just because his show has the highest TRPs doesn't mean he is right.

And just because I think he isn't right doesn't make him not right.

I am humble enough to admit that my judgment of right and wrong doesn't mean I am right or wrong.
