I don’t always enjoy reading the M&G. I would think of it as the vegetables of my newspaper diet if I did not like vegetables so much. I guess I should just call it a dull old rag. But today it I really got a kick out of it.
My best story: the R50-million paid to CNBC Africa by the Gauteng government. How is this different from the National Party Government funding the Citizen in 1977? Apart from investment in the province, the intention was also to secure “preferential and regular programming and content slots to the Gauteng Provincial Government.” Outrageous. Heads should roll, but of course they won’t.
(I would have added the link, but the story does not seem to be availabe online, only in the hard copy. Sorry.)
