1 GMMP 2009/2010 T RAINING MODULE A guide to the radio monitoring materials Section 2: Reporters and People in the News

2 A N INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVE … Because media monitoring is taking place in over 100 different countries across the globe, it is critical that all participants have a uniform understanding of the way the monitoring materials should be applied. Please use this presentation as a means of familiarising yourself with the materials and becoming comfortable with their application.

3 G UIDELINES In this section you will need to code: All journalists and reporters, in this case, the anchor. All people that appear in the story, in this case Sandra Botha and Norman Mashabane. Each ‘person in the news’ is given their own row on the coding sheet in columns 7 to 12. Anchor : South African's ambassador to Indonesia Norman Mashabane has won his appeal against an internal disciplinary hearing which found him guilty of sexual harassment in 2001 and again in The Department of Foreign Affairs issued a short statement on the matter yesterday. Department spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa was not available for comment. With me in the studio is Sandra Botha, spokesperson for the Democratic Alliance. Ms Botha, what is your reaction to this development? Sandra Botha : It's difficult to understand what could have led to this decision. On the face of it, the evidence against him was strong. There were 22 counts, so it was not just his word against one other person's. It's astonishing. Anchor : Is the Democratic Alliance considering any further action? Sandra Botha : We have already approached the office of the public prosecutor to probe the Department's handling of Mashabane's case. We'll continue to investigate, and we'll be taking a closer look at the appeal process that cleared him.
