EGI Issues Statement, Cleverly Backing “Witch-Hunt” Against Republic Network

NEW DELHI: As Editors Guild of India (EGI) losing its credibility due to its selectively working for a group.  So, with fears of losing its face in public, the Editors Guild of India finally came out with a statement, which sounds louder in backing the witch-hunt carried out by the Maharashtra government against Republic TV, than supporting it.

The guild, in its statement, condemns Mumbai police for filing hundreds of FIRs against Republic journalists, who are under probe for allegedly manipulating TRPs and spreading discontent against Mumbai Police.

The guild has tried to monkey-balance and condones the witch-hunt against Republic TV, by addressing the episode as a “standoff” between Republic TV and Mumbai police.
