There is a difference between constructive criticism and just being plain nasty. Shooting future journalists down is not the way to go. We are starting out and we are learning.
I feel obliged to speak on the behalf of the team. Please people if you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all. We all need a bit of criticism once in a while, but such criticism should build and not break. As for dissing Sipho that was way out of line. Why do people always have to resort to personal attacks?
Being part of the Future Journalist Programme is a learning curve and it goes without saying that mistakes do happen.
Thank you Richard for taking and interest in our blog and posting a comment atleast something good came out of this. Now we know that there are people out there who actually take time to read our blog.
