Question and answer
Identify two organizations/institutions that control and regulate the media in south africa.
African National Congress (ANC) reportedly is trying to pass a bill which will re-define how the media is regulated in South Africa, AfricaNews.com reported. [ The congress is a national liberation movement and a political party. The bill would "replace the current self-regulating mechanism through the Press Ombudsman instituted in 1996 to adjudicate breaches of the code." Instead, the bill
would create a Media Appeals Tribunal, a "statutory body" to handle media issues. The bill's backers say that current media regulation isn't working. Opponents see the tribunal's creation as a way to give parliament some control over media and hamper press freedoms. South African Press Council chairman Raymond Louw also commented that the law would inhibit press freedom as well and a way to get propaganda in the media. Likewise, The Freedom of Expression Institute called the bill "fundamentally flawed." But, ANC communications chief Nkenke Kekane reportedly countered that "We are not interested in closing down publications, in muzzling the media or in embedded journalism; what we need is accurate reporting, and not distortion." The ANC claims that the current system is ineffective because it has the media acting as both "a referee and a player at the same time," as the press ombudsman is a former journalist. ]
