BREAKING. South Africa's public broadcaster says it has completed its retrenchment plan that will now see 303 SABC staffers lose their jobs.
Unperturbed in a self-induced and embarrassing news slumber eNCA is caught asleep and stuck in repeats as Newzroom Afrika and SABC News covered Wednesday night's unfolding chaos at the Capitol in America.
SABC News was the only local TV news channel that broadcast live the speech of America's president-elect Joe Biden while eNCA and Newzroom Afrika showed repeat programming on Wednesday night.
As dramatic scenes unfolded from inside and outside the Capitol building and grounds, Newzroom Afrika brought viewers live visuals and news reporting, while SABC News did the same, together with live reporting from the SABC's correspondent Sherwin Bryce-Pease based in New York.
Oddly, and in sharp contrast with SABC News and Newzroom Afrikca, eNCA by 22:00 on Wednesday night was already deep into recorded repeat programming.
While the coverage of the latest news and gasp-inducing visuals on SABC News and Newzroom Afrika couldn't compete with the likes of international TV news channels like Al Jazeera, CNN International, Sky News and others who did rolling live coverage from the scene for hours, at least SABC News and Newzroom Afrika proved that these channels were awake, responsive, checking the news feeds and able to switch to and can incorporate late-night breaking news.
eNCA isn't able to.
