Joe Thloloe, SA Press Ombudsman addressed the
newsrooms on the
revisions of the Press Code, Procedures, and Constitutions on 21-22 November,
2012. The unveiled constitution of the Press Council of South Africa states its
primary aim and objective as: “To promote and to develop ethical practice in
journalism” and puts forward the SA Press Code as a guide to excellent
practice. The revised constitution goes into effect from Western Cape 1 January 2013. Thloloe telephonically spoke to us about these changes. Find them on www.presscouncil.org.za or call 011 484 3612. Or follow him twitter @buddypress.
