Just three days into the launch, Arnab’s Republic TV has stirred the news industry by exposing controversial tapes of veteran politicians.
On its first day, the channel exposed Lalu Prasad Yadav, and now, their latest target is Shashi Tharoor. Yesterday, Republic TV released 19 tapes about Tharoor’s alleged involvement in his wife Sunanda Pushkar’s murder case.
In retaliation, Tharoor bashed Arnab Goswami, and called him an “unprincipled showman masquerading as a journalist”.
Furthermore, in a short press meet this morning, Tharoor, again, rejected all the allegations and stated that the media should not behave like a prosecutor.
He also claimed that this news is being propagated just for the sake of TRPs, and compared Republic TV to a toilet roll.
Watch Tharoor disgracing Republic TV:
While the minister was addressing the press, a Republic TV’s crew member allegedly blamed Tharoor’s goons for manhandling him.

Sad day. Shashi Tharoor watches as his goons attack me for asking questions on #SunandaMurderTape. Punched, manhandled for reporting facts.
