    #BREAKING: Arnab Goswami Is Unnecessarily Aggressive Instead Of Calmly Conversing

    As if anyone expected any better from his Reddit AMA.

    The past few months have seen a welcome silence in homes across the country, as India's resident yeller-in-chief left Times Now to launch his own news channel, The Republic.

    Times Now

    A couple of days ago, Goswami announced that he would be on Reddit India to host an AMA to promote his new venture.

    Block your calendar: Arnab Goswami LIVE on @redditindia AMA on 27th April – 4 PM. #AMAwithArnab

    You might think that time away from the studio might have mellowed Goswami out. But, as it turns out, you'd be very, very wrong.

    Times Now

    The AMA started with a user asking Goswami about his quarrel with The Wire, to which he responded by calling them "a crumbling news site".

    Last year, The Wire was made to take down an article that accused Goswami and Times Now of airing a doctored video that was factually inaccurate.

    When asked about his bias towards a certain side of the political spectrum, he basically said, "Ya, so?"

    When asked about left-leaning "liberal" English news media, Goswami painted them as an oppressive majority, despite running the most-watched English news channel in India for years.

    It wasn't just English channels, though. Goswami dissed both the BBC and Al Jazeera.

    And just to wrap things up, he put limits on freedom of speech.

    Even though the AMA lasted just an hour, Goswami provided readers with plenty of material to get called out over.

    Wow, Arnab Goswami doesn't know how questions work or what? (Rhetorical; of course he doesn't.)

    Enjoy the peace and quiet while it lasts, folks. He's gonna be back inside your homes very soon.

    Have you ever seen Arnab Goswami getting roasted? Dodging questions? No? It's happened on @redditindia right now.…
