While joining the News18 network, she stated that she was going to launch a global project to change the news-viewing culture in India.
The Reliance-owned media group is digitally available for its services. Although not amid several controversies, Firstpost was criticised in 2015 for removing articles written by the then editor-in-chief R Jagannathan titled, “GST, Land Bill on Hold: Modi May Have To Rethink Jaitley as Finance Minister.”
