Media Monitor, 21 April 2019

​Hello and welcome to Media Monitor on the SABC News Channel, Independent and Impartial. This is where we take a look inside the world of media, analysing the trends, the issues and the reporting of some of the week’s top stories. Thanks for joining us. I’m Peter Ndoro and this is what’s coming up on the show..

We unpack how one draws the line between freedom of the press vs what is of public interest and what should be kept hidden. This following the recent arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in London who stands accused of leaking classified US government information.

We talk to SABC news journalist Natasha Phiri who was robbed in an attempted hijacking in Alexandra Township north of Johannesburg this past week while covering the ongoing protests there. ​

These are some of the stories that we will be tackling on the show. But first let’s take a look at what is on the front pages of your Sunday newspapers this morning .​
