The article examines the coverage of violent conflict between the African National Congress (ANC) and Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), commonly referred to as the <i>Natal violence, </i> by three newspapers in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, from 1987 to 2000. It attempts briefly to unravel the ideological and political construction of violence through comparative analysis of newspaper headlines and stories, and demonstrates a breakdown in ethical reporting during the years of apartheid, that has shadowed journalists into the new millennium.
