It probably won’t come as any surprise to anyone, who follows these matters closely, but the agency that oversees advertising in South Africa has just ruled in favor of an ad, that strongly criticizes the Israeli government. Of course, our “mainstream” media has no interest in such a story, and moreover, to my knowledge — they’ve never had any interest in that — Desmond Tutu has long likened Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians to that of an apartheid state. So since this doesn’t go along with what the government-controlled media (aka the “mainstream” media) intends to proffer, then it will, undoubtedly, be just another story that goes missing from our “distinguished and venerable” corporate “authoritative” press.
