    What is your analysis of TRP rating of Republic TV?

    Recently Republic national TV and two Marathi channels came into lime light because they were suspected to be involved in TRP scam. Republic TV is run by a very famous anchor Arnab Goswami and a BJP member is a co-producer of this TV. It is a well known fact that this channe isl mainly projects BJP and its agenda. Many TV channels compete for this TRP rating and this is the basis on which they get advertisements. For this all the TV channels play foul games and false means to get high TRP rating. Why governments don't take notice of these scams?Members, what is your analysis on this issue?

    I am the regular viewer of TV9 news in Telugu and Republic tv in English and obviously no one has induced me nor managed me, nor paid me to watch the channels. I like the investigative journalism behind these two great channels and when the truth is getting diluted channels like these take plunge to clear the doubts and for that reason they should not be targeted because when exposing truth, the government agencies, govt setup also gets trolled and criticized to which many are averse and bring cases against these channels. And regarding the TRP which the author was referring it is the handiwork of rival media and they have even agreed for playing the trick for fudging the TRP ratings and this proves that there is a larger conspiracy to subvert the working of sincere media who are doing investigative journalism.

    Concerning the alleged- TRP- scam Mumbai Police have arrested four people so far. One of them is a former employee of Hansa Research who allegedly paid money to people for watching a few selected channels to increase their TRP.

    The police said, so far, they have found Republic TV, Fakt Marathi and Box Cinemas were involved in the manipulation of TRPs, and are examining if other channels were involved in the alleged scam.

    Police recorded Sunday the statements of Republic TV chief executive officer (CEO) Vikas Khanchandani, chief operating officer (COO) Hersh Bhandari and channel distribution head Ghanshyam Singh in connection with the ongoing investigation.

    Soon, truth will come out.

    It is not good to bribe people to see a particular channel. Another issue is how many people they can bribe. Something may be there in this scam which is not seen the light of the day. The investigation is already on. They questioned the CEO & COO and other senior officials from Republic TV. Still, the police are exploring the involvement of some other channels also. But nothing solid has come out. The management of Republic TV is very confident and says that they have not done anything wrong. Let the enquiry continue and let the truth come out. Meanwhile, we can't decide somebody as the culprit.
    always confident

    It is now established that India today has indulged in such cheap method of paid viewership and they agreed to the scam also therefore Republic has nothing to do with TRP scam.

    This is quite obvious and quite evident from the given progress of the events that many are jealous of increasing TRP of the Republic TV. Till being jealous is ok but few have taken in a perspective which can not be called the professional.

    I do believe that Republic TV has gone to a level which no news channels have gone before. It is because of the Republic TV that the Palghar incident got a national level discussion & the Sushant case reached to an international level. They well supported the Kangana Ranaut case too. These all have irritated the Maharashtra government and is doing everything in order to destroy the image of the Republic TV. For example, the Arnav was called for interrogation for calling Sonia, the Antonio Maino but didn't find objectionable by the court. Then their reporters got arrested and now using TRP rating to demean this channel.

    I witnessed about how the other channels went on to targeting this channel but when seeing the name of India Today everyone went silent.

    I do prefer the Republic TV above other channels, and this is not just but above this I have unsubscribed from others who indulged in the false allegation and I really enjoyed the numbers of dislikes that the viewers put to those including to “Aaj Ki Baat" being presented by Rajat Sharma.

    We can easily observe about how the different channels used the Hathras incident for their TRP and for demean the UP government but are silent on Rajasthan and other States. The Republic TV did a good job by bringing this whole with facts.

    The latest news is that the producers and the actors have joined hands together and filed case against Republic tv and Times now for portraying wrong about Bollywood and the actors got rattled because none of their promotions are received overwhelmingly, nor their movies seen with interest. Even the programs in which Bollywood actors are lead players and anchors are disregarded and sidelined by the viewers. This is the spontaneous actions from the fans who have been deceived by the respective actors and thus they are showing anger now, All these could be possible because these two channels exposed them.

    There are many things nowadays going in the media and it is difficult to believe what they are projecting is true or not. Apparently there are two distinct groups which are talking 180 degree with each other. In this situation the gullible viewer is in a doldrum as which one to believe. It is natural that one who is voicing against the present administration would get the wrath of the authorities to teach it a lesson not to talk anything against the regime. This is nothing new and has always happened in history and today it is simply repeating. There are many truths which appear to be buried under the carpet and until they are unearthed properly the viewer has no options. Sometimes might is right and truth gets covered and buried for good.
    Knowledge is power.

  • #712620
    Channels use various tactics to increase their TRP ratings to earn money and the gullible viewer does not know all these finer things and clings to a channel of his interest and liking. Channels know how to impress the viewers and attract them with their talks.
    Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.

    The arrest of one of the top reporters of Republic tv in Mumbai yesterday and later releasing him when the tv gone live in front of police station proves that police actions were over board. Like this even the TRP rating case has been handled in a most hopeless way and Mumbai police got bad name.

    The BARC has absolved Republic tv from the so called allegations of TRP fudging and given clean chit. So the case is clear now and it was other channel which stopped to the low level and now the conduct of the Police head is under scanner for his urgent allegations on the Republic tv and also arresting the reporters of the same tv for no reasons. Anyways the Maharastra govt is going wrong side on this issue and there seems to serious thoughts in the minds of central govt to impose President rule in the state as nothing is going as per the rule and the Union Home Minister Amit Shah has been posted of the developments.

    Why propagate false news?
    The Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) accused the Republic TV of misrepresenting the contents of private and confidential communication. The BARC issued a statement mentioning that "BARC India is highly disappointed with the actions of the Republic Network by disclosing private and confidential communications and misrepresenting the same."
    "BARC India reiterates that it has not commented on the ongoing investigation and without prejudice to BARC India's rights, it expresses its dismay at the actions of the Republic Network,"

    " Be Good and Do Good "

    BARC was disappointed and hence reprimanded Republic TV when Republic TV, in an article on its website, made public the private email communication from BARC as Republic TV claims "if there was any disciplinary action initiated against ARG Outlier Media Private Ltd (which owns Republic TV), then BARC India would have communicated the same to you along with necessary documents for your response".

    What could be the reason for blocking CBI by the Maharashtra government from taking over the TRP Rating Scam?

  • #712945
    If BARC was wrong on Republic then why it is getting ready to sue for the defamation of 200 crores on Maharastra govt and now CBI has no entry in that state as per latest orders. What is going on there?
