Media Freedom Can be Celebrated: SANEF

The country has a reason to celebrate Media Freedom Day, says Basson

Chairperson of South African National Editors Forum's Media Freedom Committee and Editor of Beeld newspaper, Adriaan Basson, says the country has a reason to celebrate Media Freedom Day.
 
The country marks Media Freedom Day, the day is a reminder of Black Wednesday, 1977, when apartheid Justice Minister Jimmy Kruger outlawed three newspapers, The World, The Weekend World and the Voice.
 
During the ensuing struggle for democracy, journalists were frequently harassed and imprisoned for doing their jobs and the press was restricted by authorities in many other ways.
