Arnab returns

So I got working on getting back to where you can hear me and see me. The universe conspired to make this happen.
An ode from ARNAB of ARG Outlier Media



Hullo, hullo, HULLO!

Did you miss me? 

Really?  Now I’m blushing!

I missed you too.

Every moment.

Do you know how long its been?

Six months.  

November 14. I remember the day.

Actually five months 18 days, nine hours, 19 minutes…

I counted. 

Since those insecure  ***s   snatched me away from you.

Did not let me say goodbye

So I got working on getting back to where you can hear me and see me.

The universe conspired to make this happen.

And now…I am so overwhelmed!  Sob. Get me a hanky…



So here I  am.  Do you know what really feels good?

What makes me feel incredibly powerful?

Its my own channel! I can do it all my way!

Kick any anti-national butt I want.



And let me tell you, its not a moment too soon. 

The country’s been going down the tube.

Kashmir is on fire.

Soldiers beheaded.

The courts are releasing terrorists.

We have to go to war to save this nation.

We have to go to war. Right here.

In these studios.

Not a moment too soon.



And now,


Our political super exclusive for the day.

See this man?

Recognise him?

And this one?

Listen to this phone call. 

Listen to what is being said.

Just listen. And to the tone!

Tell the chief minister to tune in.

His coalition partner is being hectored by a mafia don!

A mafia don sitting in jail.

What’s going on in Bihar?



Ladies and gentlemen, my reporters are telling me all hell is breaking loose.

Massive political repercussions.

The BJP is calling a press conference!

The chief minister is in a huddle with his men.

The top cop of the state has been summoned!

I can’t believe the impact we are having!

Republic is on air just four hours and all hell is breaking loose in this country!



What? How did I get that telephone intercept? 

Now you are being naughty.

I am not going to tell you.

Don’t look for motives, okay?

Don’t make me lose my patience.

When we roll up our sleeves to take on the powerful,

the universe conspires to give us what we need.



All you anti nationals out there, watch it.

We are coming for you, one a day.


You should be shaking in your shoes.

ARRRnab is BACK!


Good night.

The new term for self censorship is voluntary censorship, as proposed by companies like Netflix and Hotstar. ET reports that streaming video service Amazon Prime is opposing a move by its peers to adopt a voluntary censorship code in anticipation of the Indian government coming up with its own rules. Amazon is resisting because it fears that it may alienate paying subscribers.                   

Clearly, the run to the 2019 elections is on. A journalist received a call from someone saying they were from Aajtak channel and were conducting a survey, asking whom she was going to vote for in 2019. On being told that her vote was secret, the caller assumed she wasn't going to vote for 'Modiji'. The caller, a woman, also didn't identify herself. A month or two earlier the same journalist received a call, this time from a man, asking if she was going to vote for the BSP.
