Supreme Court lawyer and activist Prashant Bhushan has shared Whatsapp screenshots and contents of the charge sheet, showing a conversation between Arnab Goswami and Partho Dasgupta.
Goswami, Republic Media Network’s editor-in-chief and Dasgupta, the ex-chief executive officer of Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) came to limelight when a Television Rating Point (TRP) scam was busted.
Republic TV was named in the TRP manipulation scam that the Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) of the Crime Branch-CID of Mumbai police has been investigating for past few months.
However, there has been no confirmation or comment from the Mumbai Police on the chats so far. Bhushan has shared the screenshots of the chats on Twitter.
The chats screenshots are a peep into the whole new world of manipulation by Goswami and his attempts that promote unfair reporting and opinion formation.
