Dr Iqbal Survé, chairman of the group that controls The Star, Cape Times, and other publications told the SA Jewish report that editors have been given clear directives to include all points of view and to ensure they do not come across as partisan on any issues. Moreover he added
“We as a group absolutely give voice to everybody. We don’t have a policy of being pro-Israel or pro-Palestine and we would guard against that.”
It is therefore sadly disappointing that despite the above assurances by the chairman, the Cape Times has not acknowledged receipt, let alone published, a response to a recently published, biased article, which incidentally violates the SA Press Code.
