Media Monitoring Africa director William Bird said in some respects, the media had made significant strides in transformation, but that this had not been sufficient.

According to the Media Monitoring diversity index, most publications in the country remained “less diverse”.

The diversity index is an online rating tool that provides a window into the diversity or lack thereof in South African media content on a range of parameters, including diversity of topics, sources, geographical coverage, as well as levels of original and recycled content.
