The Black journalist in South Africa by William A Hachten( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the black journalist in South Africa is contradictory, precarious, and permeated with politics. There is little freedom of expression for blacks in South Africa, yet white-owned newspapers have expanded their coverage of black news, and some have special editions for black readers. As a result, the English language press is using more black reporters and is often quite dependent on them since they can sometimes go into areas where white reporters are not welcome. A hazard for black journalists is the constant threat of being arbitrarily harassed, beaten, or jailed without charge by police. Other complaints of black journalists are that blacks are employed at lower salaries or as stringers on a modest retainer without employee benefits. A separatist movement is growing that pits black journalists against their white liberal friends. The Writers Association of South Africa, an organization of black journalists, has assumed a separatist stance and asks for equal pay and full recognition for black journalists, more and better training for blacks, more voice in editorial policy, and black editors of township editions.
