Xenophobia in the media adds fuel to the fire

The xenophobic attacks on immigrants are a very serious problem in a democratic country like South Africa. The history of life and the world has been of peoples’ migration from one place to another and South Africa is not unique.

Media must at all times make sure that it educates and informs in such a way that it is not biased and misleading. The way newspapers like the Daily Sun have been reporting and labeling immigrants as aliens fuels racist prejudices and misdirects latent tensions in society. This tabloid newspaper reports on foreign immigrants in often derogatory terms that verge on hateful representations.

People buy newspapers to access news and developments but with the Daily Sun’s kind of poor, sensationalist and unprofessional reporting the news has become particularly distorted. The MCRC is calling on the Daily Sun to be responsible for the attitudes and affects it conveys. Life is more important than the number of copies sold.

Good and professional reporting is one of the key contributing factors in trying to solve the xenophobic attacks.
