Rock journalism is people who can’t write interviewing people who can’t talk for people who can’t read” (Frank Zappa) – Comment

I think for my point of view, rock journalism should be people who are very good in journalism; a kind of person who in natural birth is having all those features that journalist should have, beside the qualification on the profession. Like most kind of these people you will get them at SABC morning live presenters Vuyo Mbuli, Xolani Gwala, Vuyo Mvoko, and others from Super sport on sport journalism Robert Marawa etc. and other broadcasting radio stations. I would say these journalists are rocking. They make journalism very interesting. Since I get expose to media I never see a kind of journalist who is boring, who ask stupid questions or who can’t talk, Journalist are always proactive. Even local presenters they engage local communities on relevant issues, like crime, HIV/AIDS, poverty and alleviation. In other words it’s a kind of holding government accountable about challenges are faced by our society. Most journalist programs keep on interviewing government representative such as ministers, director generals and etc. Journalist keep public informed about what is happening and where, how, why, what. Journalism reporting is for the public interest only.
