The Zuma Media Spats
The Sunday papers have been having a field day fighting over the most salacious headlines around the Zuma affair. Last Sunday, the Sunday Times led with Zuma's charge, whilst the Sunday Independent attacked the Sunday Times' credibility by stating that the 'accuser' denied the story altogether. It turns out, that the Sunday Independent and Sunday Times are printed on the same presses, and the Sunday Independent changed their front page story after seeing the freshly printed Sunday Times on the presses. It's a great newsman's story, and Peter Bruce of the Business Day has the scoop.
