Sunrise: etv is back with their informative breakfast-show

In a country like South Africa information is vacant but it greatly depends on who's providing such in sequence and what are their personal interests? As a young SA journalist I have been watching Sunrise since last year because it won against my all time favourite show Morning Live on SABC 2. I love the way they pack and unpack information to the viewer at home, yes we have to understand that every medium encompasses personal interests that results in things like censorship but it irritates me when it is so visible and obvious that you’re giving us mundane news, for example positive about a certain political party and the rest is disgusting news about the other parties. I mean who does positive or negative things all the time?

We as viewers we need to grow into understanding the role or rather say responsibility of the media in our communities. We need to see all sides of debate represented in the media. We must understand that the media is powerful and can change public views on certain topics, thus I would personally recommend Sunrise or e-news as the best choice for people who have the freedom of choice to choose or filter the kind of news they desire without that being done so palpable by the medium.

Underneath is what Sunrise is about and I have the same opinion that they are just about that. They have gone further than just that but they are an outstanding channel in providing news as they happen(ed) and they are fully representing all sides of society. I love their strategy of exposing artist by affording them the platform to perform live.
