What's going on in South Africa's news media?

Is the South African Broadcasting Corporation doing a good job?

Why is young firebrand politician Julius Malema criticizing journalists?

You can hear me answer these questions and more on National Public Radio's show "On The Media."

Before host Bob Garfield made a trip to South Africa, he interviewed me about current issues in the country's news media.

Garfield then interviewed South African journalists on the state-owned media and political satire in South Africa.

Listen and let me know what you think.
