This article is based on the findings of a group of eleven specialists (WITS) who were commissioned by IDASA to monitor SABCï¿½TV news coverage of the run-up to the 1989 general election. The report attempts to be a ï¿½case-studyï¿½ in the construction of television news, employing discourse theory and the semiotics of film and communication in preference to the traditional quantitative approach.
