Podcast: Media Law - Defamation

​​​​​This is episode 5 of our series on Media Law and we are looking at a very important recent defamation case where two veteran journalists, represented by Webber Wentzel, successfully sued the Economic Freedom Party for being called Stratcom agents. Dario Milo's guests are the two applicants in that case - celebrated journalist, author and Economics Editor at SABC NEWS Thandeka Gqubule-Mbeki, and the Caxton Professor of Journalism at Wits University Anton Harber. Anton is the founder and former Editor of the Mail & Guardian and the former Editor-in-Chief of eNCA. Anton and Thandeka go back 30 years to explain the background to this fascinating defamation case and then discuss the judgment itself. It is a deep dive behind the scenes of a stunning legal case.​
