Journalists in South Africa are sometimes criticised from a Leftwing, Marxist perspective, for being tools of capitalist owners, but another perspective was heard at Rhodes University this week by Professor Steven Friedman.
This Friday Gino Shelile, a former TV student in the Rhodes University School of Journalism and Media Studies, will leave for New York to attend the UNAOC-EF Summer School in Tarrytown from 24 to 31 August.
A comical look into the stereotypes and perceptions that people have about journalism students. Looking at aspects from how we study, to what we get up to behind the scenes. The piece is based on the well known ‘what people think I do’ Internet memes”
