dc.description.abstract Just over ten years after South Africa became a democracy, the media is still struggling to understand and fulfil its role in the new dispensation. The state is no longer simply the enemy. Now the media is required to be more nuanced in its responses. It must not only be a watchdog and corruption-buster, but it must also nurture goodwill and support national unity. It must be critical but also be constructive. It must not only reflect mainstream opinion, but also work especially hard at giving voice to the voiceless. It must uphold ethical and professional standards while creating a more diverse workforce. These at times conflicting demands have inevitably led to tensions, frustration and an environment in which excellence has found it difficult to be heard. en
