Niali – The role of journalists

The Sunday Times (SA newspaper) ran a front-page article which was clearly bias.

What is the role of a journalist?
To find stories, but also to get the facts straight and give us proper information. They shouldn’t just run with the story without the facts.

Should they be held responsible when their bias incites violence?
Yes, they should.

Is it fair that our media is allowed to act so irresponsibly?
No.

I am all for freedom of speech but where is the line?
I think you cross the line when you become too personal and you cross boundaries. Journalists should have boundaries and know them.

Do you feel you are being short-changed in terms of the information you are fed by our papers and our media?
Yes.

Why?
We aren’t getting facts is why I don’t read the papers anymore.
