According to reliable sources, information emerged on Friday afternoon revealing that the SABC has warned a white journalist to stop covering farm attacks.
The lady who is a field journalist at the SABC said she was told to stop covering farm attacks and farm murders by her superiors.
The journalist who cannot be named said she had submitted more than 20 farm attack stories in the past month and they were not aired on radio or broadcasted on TV. When she asked why her reports never reached the people her bosses told her that her reports are not good for the country’s image and told her to never bother with farm attacks.
“THEY TOLD ME THEY DESTROYED THE TAPES AND IF I LOVE MY JOB I SHOULD NOT USE THEIR RESOURCES ON NEWS THAT DOESN’T DESERVE TO BE BROADCASTED”
“I’ve been working as a reporter for years now and noticed how a lot of farm attacks do not get coverage”. She said.
