Another unusual fixture is Indian journalist Raghubir Goyal, who reports on the White House for the India Globe, a publication whose website contains no content. Goyal is known for asking lengthy questions
about India policy, particularly on Kashmir, no matter what else is going

On the Media looked into an exchange between Ari Fleischer Goyal the Foil a few years ago.
