'King' content will take over monopolistic media entities, says Arnab Goswami

NEW DELHI: The future of news lies in breaking away from the interdependence of politicians and the media on each other.

Not merely that, but the ebullient editor-in-chief of Times Now Arnab Goswami feels the news centres have to move away from the sole centre Delhi. He also feels money is ?nothing but an enabler?, but content is the king. ?So, good content is supreme? and the Indian media will be global (media) in the next three to four years.

Monopolies will fall and will be taken over by those having good content, he said.

Addressing a session during the recent CII Big Picture, he also felt that the days of a polite editor were gone, and one had to be hard to challenge everything including religion. Speaking of his own experiences, he said he had taken on powerful persons but put them in their place by bringing the citizen first.

Terming the conventional ?objectivity in journalism? as ?greater rubbish?, Goswami said it was wrong to think that journalism has to be devoid of emotions. In fact, he cited many examples of how Times Now had disrupted the news space to redefine how news is practised.

He urged young journalists to ?feel the news to strike the right chord with the audience and express their opinions."

?When you believe in something, do not be afraid to make it a campaign. The era of polite anchors is over, and no one listens when you do not shout. TV news is fast becoming a change agent and a true reflection of democracy.? He had touched people?s hearts by taking up their cause and turning them into campaigns.

He said the cardinal rule was never to express one?s personal views, but the opinion of the people coming from the heart.

On a personal note, he said one had to take over the reins of the discussion if one had to get a point across.
