Analysis of covid-19 media coverage.

26 May 2020 8:32 AM

Bongani speaks to William Bird, Media Monitoring Africa Director.

From the time of the first positive Covid-19 test in South Africa, the virus has been extensively covered on an ongoing basis. It is of paramount importance and expected of the media, as the fourth estate and communication line between a government and its citizens, to keep these citizens informed on the functions of government and other important issues, including national disasters and pandemics. The public expects the media not just to report on the daily rates, but also to unpack and help people understand the ongoing shifts and changes relating to the virus.

In efforts to ascertain some of the trends in this coverage, Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) is undertaking bi-weekly brief analyses, mainly looking at aspects including who is speaking in coverage, dynamics on gender and race representations and the collective number of articles published. This is to arrive at a data-driven view and understanding of how the media has and continues to report on the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown and, who the agenda setters are.

SAMRC investigation into Dr Glenda Gray is a witch hunt

26 May 2020 7:33 AM

Bongani speaks to Professor Adam Habib, Wits vice chancellor

 The SA Medical Research Council (SAMRC) board has apologised to the Ministry of Health and the Ministerial Advisory Committee for recent comments made by its president, Professor Glenda Gray, and says it will institute a fact-finding investigation into the "damage" the comments may have caused.

Wits vice chancellor Professor Adam Habib says SAMRC’s board's decision to launch an investigation into its president amounts to a witch hunt.

He has described the response to Gray's comments by the SAMRC board as "disproportionate", "over the top", and warned of the chilling effect the entire saga would have on the scientific community
