    ANC Sets Sights on Newspapers

    This is in my opinion the cornerstone of communism- control of the media and limitation of freedom of speech.

    Cape Town - The ANC is considering a total onslaught against the printed media, which it wants to rein in with legislation and investigations.

    The documents for discussion at the ruling party's national executive council meeting in September have just been released. These include a document entitled "Transformation in the media, ownership and diversity".

    It outlines the route the ANC wants to follow against a "neo-liberal" media which depicts the government as "weak and passive", that "over-emphasizes people's individual rights" and is "fundamentally market-driven".

    The ANC states in no uncertain terms that "legislation and intervention" is needed to ensure a diverse media.

    These discussion documents have emerged amidst the controversial proposed Protection of Information Act, which will allow the State to classify any information it deems sensitive and hand down heavy penalties to journalists.

    According to the documents, it's the printed media in particular which is a thorn in the party's side because of reports which seldom paint the government in a positive light.

    "A superficial audit of the printed media reveals an astounding degree of dishonesty, a lack of professional integrity and independence."

    According to the ANC, corrupt journalists receive money to promote the agenda of certain political parties, and the "rot" is far worse than the media would like to admit.

    The party takes particular exception to the fact that confidential information is leaked to the media after party meetings.

    The document also states that corrections are never given sufficient prominence and that the press ombudsman (self-regulation) is ineffective.

    "This situation is intolerable."

    The ANC also feels it is its duty to intervene, in order to protect the media's credibility.

    waar

    Waar is die sanksies? Waar is die optogte? Waar is die beroemdes wat bek rek? Daar was baie daarvan teen die ou regering, maar die anc doen wat hulle wil want die buiteland aanbid die aartsterroris Mandela. Die media is al lankal onder sensuur, ek het laasjaar self groot proteste in Matatiele teen die anc gesien, die nuushelikopter het in die hoofstraat geland, die polisie het 'n kind doodgeskiet, maar niks is berig nie behalwe 'n aantyging oor wit polisiemanne wat op 'n skare geskiet het. Matatiele het geen blanke polisie nie. Blatante media manupilasie.

    Toe die ANC regering ingestem is, het mense my gebombadeer as ek durf se dat ons dieselfde pd gaan volg as Rhodesië (nou Zimbabwe). Ek dink mense moet hul oë oopmaak en sien wat besig is om te gebeur!

    Dit is nie noodwendig net die hoeksteen van kommunisme nie, dit is ook die hoeksteen van kapitalisme. In die kapitalistiese samelewing word die media gewoonlik deur korporasies, die staat en superrykes besit en beheer. Gewoonlik rapporteer hulle presies wat hul meesters wil he hulle moet rapporteer. n "Vrye media" is wensdenkery. Die verskil is egter dat in die kapitalistiese lande meer gesofistikeerde metodes gebruik word om die media te beheer ipv die ANC se kru direkte inmenging.

    In elk geval, die pers in SA is oor die algemeen nie vreeslik vry, onafhanklik of objektief nie. NAGPERS en kie kan skaars as sulks beskryf word. Dus gaan die ANC net die tjank aftrap van die's wat effens meer neul maar myns insiens gaan dit nie werklik n noemenswaardige verandering meebring vergeleke met die toestand wat reeds in SA heers nie.

    Die sanksies, optogte, trane en veldtogte was om SA se beheer aan die ANC / SAKP Jode oor te dra en om ons (blanke SA's) te onteien sodat die werklike magte agter die ANC troon (die Westerse korporasies, mynmaatskappye, banke, finansiers ens) ons land na hartelus kan plunder met die ANC se samewerking ipv dat hulle op n gelyke grondslag met ons en ons land sou moes handel gedryf het as ons nog steeds in beheer was.

    Die ANC is maar net n klomp populistiese bobbejane wat dmv "demokrasie" dus die stemme kan trek om hierdie stelsel in plek te hou. Dit is hoekom die Westerlinge (VSA, Europese Unie ens) so lief is daarvoor om oor "vryheid en demokrasie" te preek.

    Daar was baie daarvan teen die ou regering, maar die anc doen wat hulle wil want die buiteland aanbid die aartsterroris Mandela. Die media is al lankal onder sensuur, ek het laasjaar self groot proteste in Matatiele teen die anc gesien, die nuushelikopter het in die hoofstraat geland, die polisie het 'n kind doodgeskiet, maar niks is berig nie behalwe 'n aantyging oor wit polisiemanne wat op 'n skare geskiet het. Matatiele het geen blanke polisie nie. Blatante media manupilasie.
    Natuurlik..... die veldtogte was om van die blankes ontslae te raak sodat die land doelbewus in die afgrond gedryf kan word sonder teestand. Dit is hoe dinge werk. Ons was te naief om hierdie dinge te verstaan het in die 80'er en 90'er jare en op die ou end het ons die prys betaal toe Pienk Frikkie, Pik Botha en kie ons uitverkoop het aan dieselfde uitvaagsels wat nou in die bed met die ANC is.

    Terwyl ons onnosel genoeg was om te sit en worry oor die "Rooi en Swart Gevaar" is dit toe al die tyd ons Westerse sogenaamde "vriende" wat op die ou end die mes in ons rug ingesteek het.
