The SABC has kinda messed up a bit when it banned all incoming calls during its various talk shows – and now they just might pay for it.
Someone at the SABC has no time for the public broadcaster’s alignment with the ANC so took over its official Twitter account.
I guess the role of the media depends on who you ask. Some would have you believe that the main role is that of a watchdog, reining in those misusing their power. Others see it differently.
We’ve seen Zach Galifianakis do it on live television in the US before, but now we have our own ‘free the weed’ advocate lighting up on air.

It’s getting rough out there on the streets of Jozi, especially if you are a news crew with the cameras rolling. Apparently those guys are attracting trouble…
Are you not happy with your salary? Why not just go on strike, like so many people in South Africa. The only problem is that you might get fired, like the cast of Generations
It is so much fun to be able to laugh at our own country. We need to do it, or we will all go mad. Grab a plate of chicken and enjoy Nando’s latest quip.
Oh no – for all the ‘Generations’ fans out there, the whole cast has been fired…ALL OF THEM! Here’s why…
All hell has broken loose following the reported sale of a young Venda woman to the SABC’s second in command. Lies, betrothals and media falsifications… it has all the makings of a soap-opera.
This is what the ANC and the SABC do not want you to see….
The buildup to the general elections next month is heating up. Take a look at the DA commercial that the SABC banned for taking a jab at the ANC.
A skills audit report done by PricewaterhouseCoopers may have SABC executives and staff member’s looking for new jobs. But after the report showed that “60% of executive and senior managers do not meet the minimum required level of strategic thinking skills for executives,” they may as well start applying at McDonalds.
A loyal Isidingo cast member has reportedly been fired because he refused endorse a bank, whose name was included in his lines.
That’s correct. In case you’ve been under a rock for the past week, the SABC has been hit with a spate of board member resignations. Last night was the worst of the blood-letting with six board members tendering their resignations in quick succession. This morning, only three board members remained: Pippa Green, Susan Vos, and […]
Last night, minutes before a MetroFM DJ was due to hold an interview about the ANC’s upcoming elective conference, the hand of censorship showed up and the interview was canned.
Just as they did with that AXE for men commercial, the SABC has banned another TV ad, only drawing more attention to it in the first place. This time it’s a fish and chips ad, and wait ’til you hear the reasons they gave for the banning…
That’s right. Would you believe that the biggest “you owe us” national pest in South Africa – the SABC – are under investigation by the National Consumer Commission? Yes, that’s right. Basically, if you feel pressure to pay your TV license, let this article clear your conscience. According to TimesLive: Letters of demand, text messages and calls to customers […]
Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and the Treasury have seen the SABC’s proposed 24-Hour news channel business plan, and sent it packing.
Lonmin makes offer to workers. Malema in firing line. Topless pics of Kate hit stands today. Calls for calm as protests erupt over anti-islam film. Film maker is a meth cooker. Lamborghini recalls 1,500 supercars. The crazy things women will do when turned on.
DStv has recently graciously lifted its self-imposed suspension of Nando’s “Diversity” anti-xenophobia ad. But it seems this incredibly generous move by DStv has gone unappreciated by Nando’s. The restaurant-chain says it won’t be spending any money to have that advert flighted on DStv.
Not one of South Africa’s TV channels have had the balls to show the new Nando’s TV advert. So TopTV has decided to step up and teach the rest a lesson in freedom of speech. They say it should be up to the public to choose whether or not they want to watch it.
It hasn’t been a good time for the SABC. They’ve lost a studio in a fire, and their agreement with SuperSport to broadcast international rugby matches has come to an end. Could the “delayed live” broadcasting of international rugby be handed over to another free-to-air broadcaster?
Cleaning operations are currently underway at the SABC in Auckland Park, Johannesburg. This follows a fire at the Henley Studios building at around 20h00 last night. This is the studio where Isidingo is shot. But who started it? My money is on Cherel, though authorities say no foul play is suspected at this stage.
Less than a week ago Nando’s launched their popular #Diversity campaign, which celebrates SA’s rich cultural heritage. Shortly afterward, local channels banned the television ad, which they claimed “trivialises xenophobia” and “could be deemed offensive”. Nando’s are not having it.
SABC viewers expressed their “shock” and “confusion” this morning when popular morning lifestyle, news and current affairs daily, Expresso failed to go on air at the usual 06h00. What possible reason could there be behind this travesty?! And, is there another way to get it all in the morning?
