Pro-Afzal and anti-BJP reporter resigns from Zee News, media paints him “neutral”

New Delhi. On Sunday evening, some websites published news about a reporter of Zee News named Vishwa Deepak, who resigned from the channel as he was unhappy with the way his employers treated the JNU row. These reports painted Vishwa as some “neutral” and unbiased journalist who was unhappy with bias of Zee News.

However the truth is far from that. A cursory glance at the Facebook profile of the now-resigned reporter is enough to know where his bias and loyalties lay. Vishwa Deepak was yet another Afzal sympathising left leaning person full of visceral hatred against BJP and Hindutva.

For example, consider the following posts published by Vishwa on Facebook:

Vishwa Deepak blamed Hindutva, Nationalism and Modi for Yakub Memon

Vishwa Deepak wrote several posts sympathizing Afzal Guru as a Hero

Vishwa Deepak blamed India as a suppressor for hanging Afzal Guru

Vishwa Deepak and Kanhiaya
Vishwa Deeapak not only had a Leftist inclination, but he was a big fan of Kanhaiya Kumar

In wake of these, his resignation should be seen as a political statement rather than a statement on journalism of Zee News. It’s a pity that various media houses presented it as some judgement on Zee’s journalism rather than a reflection of Vishwa’s politics.

In fact, even while serving Zee News, Vishwa Deepak was very vocal against RSS and Modi.

We’re not saying that Zee has no bias. Recently the ingrained biases present in every media house has come to fore, and only the dishonest one would claim “neutrality”. We at OpIndia.com have declared our ideology as “right liberal” right from the inception.

In fact, this incident proves that the so-called right leaning media is actually more tolerant and diverse in hiring than the left leaning media. Zee didn’t refuse Vishwa the employment despite his ideology – something you can’t expect the left leaning media to do.

Recently, a left leaning website first approached and then refused to publish interview of senior journalist Kanchan Gupta, because they didn’t agree with his views. If they can’t even temporarily accommodate differing views, hiring someone is simply out of question.

The latest news from JNU was that Crowd has now swelled to 2,000-2,500 people. The letter by Zee News producer, Vishwa Deepak, who quit earlier today being read out.
