One more Journalist who has paid the price for speaking out. The system now needs propagandists and not those who stick to journalism.

People are hired on basis of their skills but fired once they start to grill. @fayedsouza was no exception. @MirrorNow should have stood firmly to their ethics instead of stooping to #Modi.
Now we have only @ndtv as our last bastion of truth. https://t.co/RWf6yXPjmQ
