from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
If you wondered what the Left totalitarians so admire in Mandela‘s Africa, beside the indiscriminate murders of whites, rapes, rampant criminality, corruption, declining economy and morality, of course – they also love the Leninist treatment of the media. Comrade Zuma, shown left considering the affairs of the state, learned well.
The Australian readers of the following item from The Daily Mail will undoubtedly sigh with nostalgia – it was a long time ago when the Australian Broadcasting Commission needed such instructions from the masters.
“The South African public broadcaster has been warned not to report on calls for Jacob Zuma to step down as president, according to campaign groups.
A spokesman from the country’s Right2Know group said the interference ‘makes a mockery of the principle of freedom of expression’.
The claim, which is denied by the South African Broadcasting Corporation, was reported by Right2Know and fellow campaign group SOS Coalition ….
Right2Know’s Mark Weinberg claimed the groups had learned about the instruction through the Broadcast, Electronic, Media and Allied Workers’ Union. SABC was reportedly told not to broadcast people booing Mr Zuma at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service. He said members of the union were given the instructions on Friday. It was also reported earlier this month that broadcasts showing of booing of President Zuma at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service had been banned. According to City Press, the crowd booed his face every time it showed up on a big screen at the service.”
