Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Analyzes media coverage of South Africa during the 1970s, dissecting three major media stories: the exposure of low black wages, the South African intervention in Angola, and the Soweto uprising. Provides insight into the problems of journalists operating in foreign countries, and shows how misleading news stories came to be published during the period. Demonstrates that foreign correspondents depended on a tiny group of sources, and also shows how important individual journalists could be. The author is a freelance journalist. Distributed by ISBS.
