Question and answer
three responsabilities of the media in SA
The South African media has a good "freedom dispensation" but it is not the best on the continent, says the head of Journalism and Media Studies at Rhodes University, Professor Guy Berger. [ the code stated that the primary purpose of getting and distributing news and opinion was to serve society by informing citizens, enabling them to make informed judgements on the issues of the time. The media is supposed to be a friend, but at the same time be a teacher, an informer and to serve the role of an entertainer. ]

investigate and explain three roles and three responsibilities of the media
Weegy: There are actually 4 universal role of the media and these are as follows : 1. Inform - give the public the best available information that is presented by officials . 2. [ [ Investigate - don't take what officials say at face value, but realize that eyewitness accounts - for example - should pass some type of litmus test and not just be tossed out in an attempt to scoop the competition. 3. Respect - in case of deaths/ongoing crisis, that the producer/editor thinks, "what if I was a family member relying on my medium for information," error on the side of caution. 4. Follow-Up - just because a new cycle ends doesn't mean the story goes away....the biggest tragedy is to allow time and ratings to dictate keeping a reporter in an investigative mode....it may not mean there is info that will be aired/published, but bring conclusion to the story though it may mean actually paying people to dig and simply come up with "file" material. ] ] (More)
