MEDIA ETHICS AND CREDIBILITY INQUIRY

SANEF has launched an Inquiry into Media Ethics with a panel of commissioners headed by retired judge Kathleen Satchwell, including panelists Nikiwe Bikitsha and Rich Mkhondo. The aim of this Inquiry is to investigate what went wrong with some of our journalism in recent years and how we can fix these gaps and loopholes so that trust and alliances between us and the public can be built.

If you are aware of any ethical breaches, evidence of capture of journalists by their sources, capture of publications or media houses, bribery of journalists or any other issues linked to credibility or ethics, including examples of best practice journalism, please contact the panel via the following email address: panel@mediainquiry.co.za.

Please note the deadline for written submissions is 31 January 2020. Submissions can be sent to the panel@mediainquiry.co.za. There is no specific format for submissions but please back all your claims with evidence and facts and ensure that you include your contact details.
