As ‘liberals’ fear monger about ‘fearless voice’ Faye D Souza ‘quitting’, Times Network clarifies that she is still associated with channel

There was even a change.org petition that demanded that Faye D Souza be brought back to Mirror Now.

Recently, news surfaced that Mirror Now anchor Faye D Souza had quit Mirror Now and Vinay Tewari was poised to take over as the new Managing Editor of Mirror Now. While there was no clarity on why Faye had ‘quit’ her job, the ‘liberal’ ecosystem had already started fear-mongering and alleging that she had to ‘quit her job’ because she was a ‘fearless voice’ that ‘stood against’ PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah.

Lawyer Karuna Nundy termed Faye D Souza as a ‘slayer of fascist ideas’ and ‘a voice of poor’ and said she has been ‘silenced as a prime time anchor’.

Prashant Bhushan said that fearless Faye was ‘made to’ resign.

Journalist Sakshi said that Faye resigned because she refused to ‘not be’ the voice of the poor.

Congress too jumped in the mix. Shashi Tharoor and Sanjay Nirupam peddled the same agenda insinuating that it was because of the Modi government that Faye D Souza quit.

In fact, there was even a change.org petition that demanded that Faye D Souza be brought back to Mirror Now.

Now, however, Times Network has issued a statement clarifying that Faye will continue to be associated with Times Network and Mirror Now.

Statement by Times Network

The statement says that Faye D Souza played a pivotal role in establishing a strong position for Mirror Now, Faye is now moving away from managing daily operations of the brand and will now be responsible for creating and presenting flagship shows on Mirror Now in addition to steering new shows, IPs and ground events for the Network.

Faye D Souza too issued a statement after 2 days of speculation.

It is interesting, however, none of the individuals who tweeted blindly blaming the Modi government for Faye’s exit based on source-based rumours from an unreliable website has retracted their fear-mongering tweets that rue the state of press freedom.
