How would you like your news served today? In a newspaper, on television, over the radio? Oh how silly, of course you’d like it on your… what – laptop, iPad, cellphone?

Next, where would you like your news to come from: BBC, NYT, Al Jazeera? Or do you prefer smaller, more ‘local’ news sources? Why not try a link posted on Twitter from that semi-famous person you follow? Or a status update from a friend who’s watching the Olympics, live?

I have a habit of going down a rabbit hole when it comes to surfing the web. 

I went from listening to the Sweeney Todd soundtrack, to Roman Polanski's rape trial and somehow ended up on Jezebel.com, a (feminist news and media website which highlights issues in new media).

As more phone-hacking incidents come to light, the UK media is bearing the brunt of the mounting number of lawsuits.

News24 reported that as of 20 April, the cases brought against News of the World has now amounted to a staggering 100.

Another UK organisation, British broadcaster Sky News, has admitted to hacking emails, but justifies this decision as ‘public interest’. Sky News is a part of BSkyB – of which 39% is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation.

I'm in the heart of the Eastern Cape, East London. Sure people will say Port Elizabeth is bigger or the Bhisho is the capital but East London, part of the Buffalo City Metro, is the real heart. Cry Freedom was based on the activities of East London newspaper editor, Donald Woods and his friendship with Steve Biko. East London is also nearer to former President Nelson Mandela's Qunu home.
