130210st - New Age gets 24-hour TV news channel

Description & Background

The Gupta family's New Age media company intends to launch a 24-hour news channel on Dstv. The channel will be taking the place of the SABC's planned 24-hour news channel, which will no longer be airing on DStv. The New Age was in the news for receiving multimillion-rand sponsorships from state-owned entities to host the New Age business breakfasts. The Guptas are family friends of President Jacob Zuma. Zuma's son, Duduzane, is in business with the family. Zapiro's  cartoon cleverly symbolises the proposed  New Age  24-hour TV news channel as snow white's  mirror mirror on the wall
