Just when you thought journalism couldn’t get worse, Times Now comes opens a pandora box revealing new ways to sabotage the fourth pillar of democracy.

Twitter was enraged at the act and called out the news channel and its anchor for making a move that was bound to bring shame across social media.

One user wrote, "This is the lowest point of journalism in India. You @navikakumar and everyone at @TimesNow who lead to this will rot in hell."

"The day journalism died a million deaths. Hang your head in shame @TimesNow absolutely appalling," added another.

Here are some reactions.

Sushant was found hanging at his Bandra residence on June 14. He was 34.
