Fishy whiff at Independent

Iqbal Survé is said to be turning the press group into government lap-dog

Self-declared “gatvol” former employees of Independent Newspapers – now owned by the black-empowered fishing company Sekunjalo, headed by Dr Iqbal Survé – speculate that Survé has been “deployed” to transform the once-powerful Independent Group into a vehicle to promote government policy to the urban middle class.

Or, if that fails, to ultimately close down its titles.

Here we go ....

It appears obvious to me that pro-ANC business men will now continue on this path and muzzle the opposition press that so valiantly fought on their behalf for many years before 1994.

Seems we are well on the way of becoming like Nigeria and other corrupt regimes across the continent - the dream of a Rainbow nation sadly fades away .....

It is my humble opinion that rarely do reporters, independent or otherwise, reach to the heart of a story, this one included. The real questions to be asked are WHO is behind the people and groups that effect control of mainstream media - both here and beyond our borders - and WHY. WHAT exactly is the agenda that they are seeking to push through the media [what is the common denominator that links them?] and HOW else are they seeking to manipulate the thought & opinion of the general public. There is a much bigger picture that SA journalists either ignore or for some reason refuse to touch. Internationally, independent journalists are addressing issues of unipolar global dominance and the various agendas that are being driven to achieve this goal, whilst in SA - where many of these programmes are being implemented - the silence is deafening. Can it really be that our dumbed down education system has worked so well that everybody is completely ignorant of the biggest issue of this century? Or are those in the know just too dumb to care?
