Basically, the SABC's head of news, Snuki Zikalala is alleged to have created a blacklist of commentators to exclude certain opinions from being represented by the broadcaster. The worst thing about it is that John Perlman has resigned as a result. Perlman, probably one of the best journalists I have ever heard on SA radio, confronted SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago on the air earlier this year, saying that he, Perlman, knew there was a blacklist - something Kganyago had denied. Wikipedia has a great article on the incident.

We would appreciate receiving copies of these letters for our records. These can be directed to Pinky Magau at (011) 339-4109, or firstname.lastname@example.org.'
I will try and write a sample letter over the next few days.
