I recall an incident in the mid 1990′s where Dr. Yaqub Zaki was visiting South Africa and remarked that he couldn’t wait to get back to Scotland? because he was so out of touch with the latest news (having spend a few weeks in South Africa).
Fair enough, the internet wasn’t yet a major hit that time, online things were still in their infancy. But I thought, what on earth is so wrong with the South African press.
Well, whether there is bias or not is speculative. But one thing for sure – they are deeeeelaayeeddd!
Take for example a story making headlines on IOL as well as the Mail and Guardian website.
I mentioned this on this blog 12 days ago, and even my post wasn’t timely. M&G calls their story ‘breaking news’. On the topic, I need to say that Yahoo! News is always a good source for latest news or topics that don’t make the news.
