    Is Reading Private WhatsApp Chats A Superpower Because This Journalist Surely Has It

    "Read by Navika"

    Welcome back to another episode of 2020 — the year of a pandemic, civil unrest, fires, explosions, untimely deaths of famous people, and...journalists reading private WhatsApp conversations in the name of news.

    Journalist navika kumar reads whatsapp chats on primetime news
    Times Now

    Over the past couple of days, Times Now's Navika Kumar has been reading private WhatsApp chats of celebrities on prime time news. These chats are allegedly proof of Bollywood's 'drug mafia' that is somehow a part of the official investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.

    1. Which makes one wonder how truly innovative Indian journalism has become:

    Navika Kumar is the only Journalist whose Journalism is based on Whatsapp msgs & Chats.

    3.

    The best joke of 2020 so far has been Navika kumar saying we cant show you the number coz we respect the person's privacy and then continue to read their entire whatsapp chat on the big screen

    4. It also makes one wonder about the other *minor* issues plaguing the country:

    Wonder why Navika Kumar never reads a Farmer's whatsapp chats and msgs.

    5.

    It's not like Times Now won't raise the issue of farmers. All that farmers have to do is, send a WhatsApp message to Navika saying that they're growing weed.

    6. And WhatsApp's new 'policies':

    Whatsapp has started doing a third tick for when Navika Kumar has read your message.

    WhatsApp: 🚫 This message was deleted Navika Kumar: Not for me

    12.

    Am thinking of deleting Whatsapp. Not because I saw “Social Dilemma” but because I am worried that Navika Kumar is reading all my messages

    13.

    14. Should we even bother reading our own messages when this journalist can do that for us?

    15.

    Hey @navikakumar, I need to check whether my ex misses me or not. Can you check his Whatsapp chats? PWEEEEZ? PRETTY PWEEEEZ?

    18.

    Just sent a WhatsApp message to my mom asking how many onions I have to put in the curry. Navika has pinged back suggesting I also add 3 green chillies with the onions.

    19. I mean, privacy is merely a construct, right?

    *Me and my friends talking in WhatsApp group* Meanwhile, Navika Kumar :
