Trolls and journalists make light of terror threat to Arnab Goswami

After news broke of Arnab Goswami being provided a threat based Y-category security by the government, many eminent trolls and journalists united to oppose the security cover provided to him while not sparing any thought about the threat Arnab faces from Pakistani terrorists for his reporting against them and their mother country.

The level of hatred for the editor-in-chief of Times Now was so apparent from their tweets that it almost sounded that they wished some terrorist had actually killed Arnab. Some of them tried to trend #TommyGetsSecurity on Twitter, which was disappointing as Lutyens crowd is expected to think of a more sophisticated dog name.

Here are some tweets by trolls and journalists mocking Arnab Goswam’s security concerns:

Perhaps speaking from own experience where journalism is all about rewards for loyalty to a political group?

Maybe with security, the journalist can work more fearlessly if he doesn’t have to fear for his life? Maybe?

Own soil means on Twitter? Twitter does have a fine feature called block. Also, apparently this is not “whataboutery”.

Because why let facts come in the way of a good propaganda?

Calling Pakistan a “terrorist state” is now bigotry for trolls.

For the records, government has always provided security to non-political personalities. Tehelka journalist Anirudh Behel was provided security by the Congress government only a couple of years back. So according to the logic of these trolls and journalists, was he being rewarded for planting fake stories against Narendra Modi and Amit Shah?
