Welcome back to another episode of 2020 — the year of a pandemic, civil unrest, fires, explosions, untimely deaths of famous people, and…journalists reading private WhatsApp conversations in the name of news.

Times Now

Over the past couple of days, Times Now’s Navika Kumar has been reading private WhatsApp chats of celebrities on prime time news. These chats are allegedly proof of Bollywood’s ‘drug mafia’ that is somehow a part of the official investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.


Which makes one wonder how truly innovative Indian journalism has become:

Navika Kumar is the only Journalist whose Journalism is based on Whatsapp msgs & Chats.

05:36 AM – 23 Sep 2020


The best joke of 2020 so far has been Navika kumar saying we cant show you the number coz we respect the person’s privacy and then continue to read their entire whatsapp chat on the big screen

02:39 AM – 23 Sep 2020


It also makes one wonder about the other *minor* issues plaguing the country:


It’s not like Times Now won’t raise the issue of farmers. All that farmers have to do is, send a WhatsApp message to Navika saying that they’re growing weed.

02:08 PM – 23 Sep 2020


And WhatsApp’s new ‘policies’:


Just In : Mark Zuckerberg hires Navika Kumar to find bugs in WhatsApp encryption algorithm.

02:34 PM – 23 Sep 2020


Am thinking of deleting Whatsapp. Not because I saw “Social Dilemma” but because I am worried that Navika Kumar is reading all my messages

06:55 PM – 22 Sep 2020


Should we even bother reading our own messages when this journalist can do that for us?


Hey @navikakumar, I need to check whether my ex misses me or not. Can you check his Whatsapp chats? PWEEEEZ? PRETTY PWEEEEZ?

05:10 AM – 24 Sep 2020


hey navika kumar, pls get access to this guys whatsapp and see if he’s texting other girls thanks behen

04:45 PM – 23 Sep 2020


@GauravPandhi @navikakumar Navika Please check my Boyfriend whatsapp chat for me .. I feel like he is cheating on me and dating my best friend..!

04:19 AM – 24 Sep 2020


Just sent a WhatsApp message to my mom asking how many onions I have to put in the curry.

Navika has pinged back suggesting I also add 3 green chillies with the onions.

04:40 PM – 23 Sep 2020


I mean, privacy is merely a construct, right?


One day Navika will climb out of the TV screen like that girl in The Ring to grab your phone and start reading your Whatsapp messages. https://t.co/dP6IpngT0Q

09:31 PM – 22 Sep 2020


Today I Deleted All My Whatsapp Chats as I’am Worried Navika Kumar may Someday Disclose my Chats too🤪🤪
