In 2008, I was interviewed on SABC’s Motsweding FM by Mr. Goitsemodimo Seleka about the…
Readers can read The Star, The Independent, Business Day, Sunday Times, Mail & Guardian, City Press and Sowetan or watch Morning Liveor listen to Morning Live or Radio 702 for the whole year or most mainstream media, they will never learn about issues that matter to them like the nefarious intentions of the United States towards Africa. Media outlets in South Africa don’t raise awareness among the masses about what the US’s reckless campaign to dominate the world and take control of the world’s energy resources. Instead these media outlets just report non-issues, in fact sublime nonsense.
These media houses have spent the better part of the 1980’s to date canonizing Nelson Mandela, who has been officially declared a sell-out by the struggle activist and long standing ANC leader (Winnie Mandela), while wasting our time and distracting our attention from issues that matter. On the other hand, politicians are busy lining their pockets, as seen with the fly- by-night ANCYL millionaires taking after ANC leaders, while criminals are busy terrorizing ordinary citizens, instead of fighting against US expansionism on the continent and other parts of the globe.
Already I have said it on Goitsemodimo Seleka’s Motsweding FM Sekolo sa Bosigo radio show on the 1st or 2nd July 2008, that US Presidents are not in charge in the US but that wealthy powerful ruling families control governments. So I am not going to talk about Barack Obama. Obama is a pawn in a global chess game. He was instructed to select former US Marine General James Jones as US National Security Advisor with an expanded scope of the job to give the advisor the kind of authority once wielded by Henry Kissinger during the Nixon administration, and Zbigniew Brzezinski during the Carter administration.
Addressing the annual dinner of the American Press Association in 1914 John Swinton, editor of the New York News said “There is no such thing as an independent press in America. Not a man among you dares to utter his honest opinion. We are the tools and the vassals of the rich behind the scenes. We are marionettes. These men pull the strings and we dance. Our time, our talents, our lives and our capacities are all the property of these men – we are intellectual prostitutes.” I am asking my countrymen and women who are journalists if they are like the way John Swinton describes them in the foregoing lines or are they different? They must search their souls and be honest. Are they proud of their reportage vis-à-vis the wretched of the African continent?
