The criticism levelled against SABC reporters and newsreaders by board shortlist nominee Govin Reddy last week in Cape Town continues to generate a heated debate as several voices of reason enter the fray, which they believe is critical for the survival of the public broadcaster.

Reddy last week branded SABC reporters “pathetic” and lacking the cutting edge, and alleged that SABC newsreaders are not trained and do not always understand what they are reading.
