The news on SABC is only 10 minutes long anyway. They fill the space between adverts with what passes for news. Always filled with a blubbing personal story, cute animals and no real news. Still adheres to Hlaudhis 60% good news and apartheid gets blamed at least weekly.

So, yes, it's a fake news site.
