National Editors' Forum call hypocritical

By unknown | Dec 10, 2008 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

The South African National Editors' Forum has made a hypocritical clarion call to journalists to desist from letting their political preferences get in the way their supposedly professional responsibilities.

Why is it that they have to make such a call when all it takes is to supervise their reporters and in-house journalists?

All they have to do is to instruct them about the need to comply with a journalist's code of professional ethics and conduct.

To now come and pontificate about this in public is nothing but hypocrisy.

The Alliance of Free Democrats invited journalists to attend our election manifesto a week ago but they failed to attend.

So we do not buy this newfangled hypocrisy of theirs and their journalists.

Themba Sono, AFD president
