SABC bias swept under the carpet
As if the conclusion was ever in any doubt, the investigators into the allegations of bias at the SABC in covering the Deputy President "booing" issue have determined that there was no bias. Ignoring any evidence offered by E-TV, the investigators found their 'patsy', the freelance cameraman Sanjay Singh who was reportedly "late on the scene", a fabrication disproved by E-TV's own coverage. The determination that the "incident was fully covered in the SABC radio news" is laughable at best, and at worst, incredibly worrying.
