Dr Nzimande is right...

02 November 2012, 14:24

The general-secretary of the South African Communist Party and Minister of Higher Education, Dr Blade Nzimande is right in his criticism of the oppositional and malicious South Africa media.

Dr Nzimande is quoted as saying the South African media is "unfair, unethical and lacking balance in their reporting." They refuse to acknowledge ANC achievements, unfairly critisice ANC leadership and resist transformation.

"SA media has thrown away every pretence at fairness and balance. They are not even following their own press code by the way. I don't know why the ANC retreated on the Media Appeals Tribunal."

Dr Nzimande's criticism of the SA media comes in the backround heightened criticism and attacks of President Jacob Zuma and the ANC government. From the vantage point of this embedded media, Zuma and his government have been an abysmal failure.

With the ANC elective conference around the corner in December  the mainstream media is on a protracted campaign against President Zuma - they desperately want him removed as president of the ANC,  and later removed as the president of the country.

The campaign against Zuma is part of the ploy to weaken the ANC and to eventually collapse it.

In the face of this media malice and opposition, ordinary South Africans have a cause to be afraid, very afraid. It is this fear that Dr Nzimande and other critical voices are echoing to bring forth a semblence of accountability within the industry.
