Doha: ‘Brash, aggressive and unapologetically nationalist,’ says Al Jazeera referring to Arnab Goswami, an Indian journalist and television news anchor, who is the editor of the Republic TV.
For 10 years up until 2016, Goswami was the editor-in-chief of TimesNow. Republic and Goswami are as unapologetic in their support of PM Modi as Fox News in the US is for its backing of Donald Trump, said Al Jazeera.
