Just a pity it hardly works. My step brother from Switzerland has booked the CPT-PTA trip 5 times (over 5 years). Not because he loved it so much, but as the previous 4 trips were delayed by 24hrs or cancelled.
I bought a copy of MH 3 months ago. Flipped through the pages and never went back to read it. First mag I had bought in years. Why pay for a syndicated article when it is bound to be free somewhere on the net.I used to buy/read at least 5+ mags a month. Now nothing. Same with Newspapers and shockingly TV. Everything is available on the Net and if I want entertainment I just switch on the the trusty radio (which has instant news) - and is also free.
How will this affect the independence of the MTN Radio Awards when TMG own 2 radio stations? Don't discount that business owners always make changes that suit themselves - i.e. Independent Newspaper Group.
It is sad that the purchase of Independent Media and this self-serving political agenda will just add more ammunition to the doom sayers. It is a pity that honest journalism is confused with hidden agendas and a 'third force'. The real ANC, which sadly passed away years ago, would (I believe) have welcomed the exposure of corruption in their ranks and got rid of those members. But then again dealing with corruption starts with the 'head of the household'.If business/people truly cared they would stop placing adverts and/or buying Independent papers
Nice PR spin. We are going to upgrade the transport infrastructure and unlock economic growth....but hidden at the tail of the article they say they don't have money for the infrastructure.... and require funding models, i.e. eTolls, which reduce economic growth!
I don't think the public truly cares about leadership issues at the SABC. What people want is good, current, entertainment - and non-biased news reporting. Most of what SABC broadcast is ancient and their news is just ANC propaganda.Another factor is that the majority of content is aimed at an audience least likely to pay for a TV licence.
So the businesses that will profit the most are patting themselves on the back for training 12 Traffic officials per month. I guess that cost them 0.0000001% of the profit they make.Reminds me of the Irish glass repair business that paid people to smash shop windows to drum up more business.
