#RahulGandhi found an unlikely ally in #ArnabGoswami this week. The #RepublicTV anchor stood up for the #Congress leader’s #RightToParty. Rahul’s pub video from Nepal was discussed and debated threadbare in most primetime debates. Comparisons were made to #Modi’s hard work in Europe, and anchors used the incident yet again to corner the Opposition.
Meanwhile, #India’s rank slipped on the #WorldPressFreedom Index this week, but that wasn’t a talking point on major news channels. Surprisingly, #WION asked its viewers to pay to keep journalism alive.
