Curious about how Australia/Melbourne is talking about and portraying the death of Madiba, Nelson Mandela in the media. I go to ‘the age’ website and the most featured piece about Mandela is a video of “Nelson Mandela and the Power of Sport”.
… Excuse me?
(I am aware of the reference to 1995 World Cup, and note the symbolism of that moment. However. emphasizing sport (and only his time in role as president) in remembering Mandela is missing the point. Hoping this wasn’t the emphasis in representation yesterday? Or in printed copies?)
