Media groups are taking on the SABC over its decision not to show violent protests on its screens, and have hinted at taking legal action against the public broadcaster. The Freedom of Expression Institute (FXI), Media Monitoring Africa and Save Our SABC Coalition (SOS) said yesterday they would fight this decision.

William Bird, of Media Monitoring Africa, said the first step was to get clarity on the actual decision.
