OFTEN, what the media portrays and what is really happening is vastly different. I understand The Herald wants to sell newspapers, but at what point do you draw the line, from sensational news reporting to relating the actual events which occur?

I’m not insinuating that the reports on the NMMU protests were untruthful, but there is also a different side to the coin which you have failed to bring to the public’s attention.

I have attached a picture I took at the peaceful gathering of students last month.
