The protest against TV measurement agency BARC  by NBA-affiliated English news channels has proved to be short-lived.  A week after pulling out of BARC and removing watermarking from their feeds they have quickly returned the fold and reinserted the watermarking.  That means the agency will now continue to capture ratings of other channels as well.  (Television Post)                         

The Quint reports that Shashi Tharoor, Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, has filed a civl defamation case against Arnab Goswami of Republic TV  for the story recently broadcast by the channel saying that Tharoor's wife Sunanda Pushkar had been murdered.  He is seeking damages of Rs 2 crore from Goswami.
