As a television news channel, the journey has been a long and arduous one. Just over 15 years old and it seems like such a long time. Memories flash past – ‘the best of times, the worst of times…’
We covered all stories that mattered, day in and day out - the sad stories and the happy ones, the in-depth investigations and the sting operations, the politics of entertainment and the entertaining politics, the sordidness of crime and the depravity of public figures, the fundamentalism of the Right and the fundamentalism of the Left and the self-righteous Middle Path, the flourishing businesses and the flourishing trade unions, the activist and the opportunist, the agony of the victim and arrogance of the perpetrator – we covered all these and more. And we will continue on the same path tirelessly, truthfully and without prejudice, upholding the torch of honest and decent journalism.
