Then, as we sold our souls to the company store, it became a bit of a dog-eat-dog equation. But this unseemly open fight between Arnab Goswami and Barkha Dutt is the absolute pits and a total disgrace to the profession of journalism. You are both making a mockery of the fourth estate and it is the most shamefully self-indulgent exercise possible. Like Caesar said to Casca the two of you are fat and sleek
