    Default News 24

    Although I value the news on News 24 over the last few months the opinion pieces on the site has become too liberal for my liking with not enough balance. Seem that they following the trend of other media houses in this regard.

    Now i see that News24 will become a pay site. https://www.news24.com/news24/column...tions-20200712

    I will not pay, will you?

    I removed their app and any other of their feeds from all my devices more than a year ago.

    Like you so politely point out, they are catering for the masses (revenue), not the unbiased truth.

    Short answer is no, I will not pay, especially since they can't even spell properly on the damn site.

    Also, I hope they realize that when it becomes a paid for service, they would need to get rid of all those annoying adds, including the site takeover ones.

    O, and before I forget, they should also get rid of their Opinion section. I really don't care for their opinions.

    Well, actually I am already a subscriber, to them and to many others.
    How can you call yourself "informed" if you do not take note of other opinions?

    If you are "mature" you won't be swayed from your personal beliefs, but it may just help to shape you as a person?

    Your statement would only be valid if all opinions were given the same playtime...

    So you like being told that you are the scum of the earth, blamed for everything since Jan arrived and that your opinions doesn't matter because you're white. And to shut your mouth...

    So for those of us who won't pay, but still wish to remain informed, which news outlet is the most 'reliable'?

    i actually found it rather thought provoking!

    Had a whatsapp debate with my friend who emigrated to Australia many years ago (escaping the swart gevaar)

    He's ability to blame all and sundry on the black man is rather scary!

    Shoot me down, i also have my issues with the ANC and of the populace, but i am not blindly stuck on a racist tyrade!
