COM3702_Ass_3_layout. MEDIA POLICY AND REGULATION. Internal and external media regulation. External regulators refer to forces outside of the media establishment, such as legislature, or governing bodies such as ICASA, which both regulate what can and cannot be published or broadcast on a national scale (Fourie 2008:51). Internal regulation refers to gatekeeping by editors, governing bodies, boards of directors or internal company policies (Fourie 2008:77). Editors can make the final decision regarding what is printed, and this is usually in line with the publication. Regulation is also placed internally when factoring in location: a protest in Johannesburg will take precedent over a human-interest piece in Lithuania (Fourie 2008:83). News24 often places importance on local, breaking news, whereas the recent earthquake in Turkey was given very little attention on their website, in line with location taking favour over human interest. News24 has also been very careful with their reporting on the Guptas and State Capture, likely owing to the fact 5 they are owned by a large, multinational news agency (Naspers), whereas a more independent publication such as the Daily Maverick could be viewed as more impartial, and has demonstrated a flouting of the (unspoken, but not yet legislated) rule of criticizing Pres. Jacob Zuma and any alleged links to the Gupta Family.
