The CEO of the South African state broadcaster quit shortly after negative news about the president is banned. There has been issues with other political parties not being shown on TV and yesterday it came out that the SABC has chosen to not show any negative news regarding the president as he "deserves our respect". Due to the ridiculous law, he is unlikely to find a job in this similar field in his country,
Yes, the CEO of the South African state broadcaster will be able to find work. There is always work for good honest people who do their job well. For a news person, part of the job is honesty, integrity and a lack of bias. This individual showed a respect for all three of these news values, so he will definitely find work.
Assuming that he left because he knew he would have little creative freedom at his job then, there would likely be nowhere else to go since every other similar job would have to comply with the new law. This means either he would have to change the way he works or find work out of the country to get anywhere with his current skills.
In regimes that strictly control the right of the press to operate freely, journalists are often objects of intense government scrutiny. In many such nations, journalists' careers are not only in jeopardy, but their very lives are in danger. If someone in such a powerful position, such as the CEO of a state broadcaster can be removed, it is very unlikely another media outlet will risk government intervention by hiring him.
