Event Overview

Media Monitoring Africa

The always-on social media world of bots, likes and shares has become the new battlefield of what’s real and not real in the news and information we read. What appears to be truth can sometimes be propaganda being peddled to derail elections or sway public opinion with the intent to cause harm. This is called DIGITAL DISINFORMATION.
Join Media Monitoring Africa, Coconut Kelz and Iman Rappetti as we launch a world first initiative to combat digital disinformation in the South African 2019 elections.

Deadline for Submissions to the Independent Inquiry into Media Ethics and Credibility Extended

SANEF has launched an Inquiry into Media Ethics with a panel of commissioners headed by retired judge Kathleen Satchwell, including panellists Nikiwe Bikitsha and Rich Mkhondo. The aim of the Inquiry is to investigate what went wrong with some of our journalism in recent years and how we can strengthen it 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 same email address. 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.
