Republic TV, the self appointed high decibel self righteous custodian of patriotism is blatantly lying every single night?
Republic’s prime time “debate”(!) starring Arnab Goswami, prominently features a twitter hashtag along with a live count of the number of tweets. Republic promotes upcoming hashtags from as early as 3 PM onwards. Obviously, their aim is to get as many tweets with the hashtag as possible and make it trend.
Here are some examples that illustrate the fake claims by Republic. In each case a screenshot showing the hashtag, count of tweets & timestamp and an extract of all tweets for the hashtag are presented as proof.
Example 1 – #CongChaiwalaAttack
Republic’s Lie : 6228 tweets at 9:47 PM
The Truth : 1476 tweets at 9:47 PM
Example 2 – #RahulCrowning
Republic’s Lie : 1511 tweets at 9:39 PM
The Truth : 566 tweets at 9:39 PM
Example 3 – #RepublicWatchesPadmavati
Republic’s Lie : 1502 tweets at 9:45 PM
The Truth : 502 tweets at 9:45 PM
The count has been bumped up by exactly 1000 in this example.
Example 4 – #SriSriSolution
Republic’s Lie : 1374 tweets at 9:34 PM
The Truth : 250 tweets at 9:34 PM
Example 5 – #CashForJustice
Republic’s Lie : 5198 tweets at 9:32 PM
The Truth : 1212 tweets at 9:32 PM
Here is an extract of every single tweet for the above hashtags up to and beyond the time of Republic’s lie. The data is available for anyone to verify or count in this Google Docs spreadsheet.
If Republic is so blatantly lying about this statistic that they prominently display on their primetime shout down, it makes one wonder else they are doing.
