    Benjamin Franklin once said; “the only truth in the newspapers is the advertisements”. This seems to be the sad reality of the South African press.

    I am utterly amazed and shocked that Mr. Rams Mabote could publish big lies which in any case have now been refuted with evidence. I am curious to know why Mr. Mabote has not verified the facts on what actually happened during my visit to the offices of Business Day. By the way, the video footage on my visit to Business Day offices is posted on YouTube. I can only hope that Mr. Mabote does not fall in the category that holds to the Adolf Hitler line; – “no matter how big the lie is, repeat until the masses regard it as truth”.

    I too am of firm believe that the duty of the Press is; – “not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and sentimental, not to simply “give the public what it wants”–but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold educate and sometimes even anger public opinion.’ (JFK).
