Media has a duty to be rigorous – [businesslive.co.za] What is the responsibility of each of us — the politicians and the electorate, the employers and the workers, the trade unionists, the priests and the congregations, students and teachers, writers and readers? How do we conduct ourselves when we are not instructed? Or what do we do when we think nobody is looking? What can we get away with when there appear to be no consequences? How far are we prepared to slip? Let us start that conversation in earnest — not to admonish the media in general, but to open a conversation about who we are or ought to be.
