The Journalist is a ground-breaking media project that provides history and context for key issues facing South African journalists. The Journalist is an independent, not for profit organisation working with the academic community and a range of credible online entities to make knowledge more accessible to the wider public. We don’t only tell you what happened. We help you understand why.
The Journalist has been launched with the support of the University of the Free State, the Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers' Union (SACTWU) and financial contributions from a range of individuals. Students and media lecturers at the University of Free State, the University of Cape Town and the University of Johannesburg are participants in The Journalist.
