User: Identify and explain three organization/institutions tha control and regulate the medie in south africa

Weegy: Three organizations/institutions that control and regulate the media in South Africa are as follows : 1 . [ [ Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) ; ICASA derives its mandate from ICASA Act of 2000, the Independent Broadcasting Act of 1993, Broadcasting act of 1999, and Telecommunications Authority Act of 1996. ICASA's mandate includes the regulation of broadcasting in the public interest, and to perform adjudication functions. ICASA also ensures fairness and diversity of views broadly representing South African society. One of its objectives is to ensure that in the provision of broadcasting services, the needs to language, cultural and religious groups, and the need of educational programmes, are taken into consideration (ICASA Position Paper 2000). It also promotes and encourages ownership and control of telecommunications and broadcasting services from historically disadvantaged groups. Again ICASA works with the Media Diversity and Development. Agency which also ensures the empowerment of previously disadvantaged groups. 2. The Media Diversity and Development Agency (MDDA) ; Government took an initiative to set up an independent agency that will address problems of the media development and diversity in the country and provide assistance through loans and subsidies to the marginalised groups (MDDA position paper, November 2000). The MDDA's mandate is to promote diversity and development in print, broadcasting and new media. It works with bodies dealing with Telecommunications, licensing and film. Also develops policies that are informed by ongoing research and evaluation. 3. Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa (BCCSA) ; The BCCSA was set up by National Association of broadcaster of Southern Africa in 1993 to adjudicate and mediate complaints against broadcasters/broadcasting licence holders.

The South African Bill of Rights insures freedom of the media; however two organizations that regulate, control or highly influence the media are: The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), which is funded by the government.
