Oor hierdie boek:

When Iqbal Survé fired Cape Times editor Alide Dasnois the day after Nelson Mandela’s death a storm engulfed Independent Newspapers. Many pointed to a Cape Times story about one of Survé’s firms as the real reason for his ire. In the months that followed, newsrooms were torn apart by suspicion, recrimination and what many believed was a witch hunt to expel those not prepared to toady to the owner. Veteran journalists Dasnois and Chris Whitfield tell the real inside story. 

Lees uittreksel

Lesers sê

‘An easy-to-read chronicle of how two people personally involved with Survé's papers witnessed the decimation of the media company. It is also about the role of the people – some of whom pose today as paragons of about the role of the people – some of whom pose today as paragons of about the role of the people – some of w journalistic virtue – who aided the erosion of editorial integrity.’

Mathatha Tsedu


‘A must-read for those who value quality, independent journalism …This is an eye-opening account of what happens when transformation goes horribly wrong, when one man’s interests override a nation’s drive goes horribly wrong, when one man’s interests override a nation’s drive goes hor for change and progress.’

Anton Harber
