Protesters called on South Africa's state broadcaster Friday to reverse a decision not to show footage of violent anti-government protests, but the station denied their claims it was censoring the news in the run-up to local elections.More than a hundred people stood outside the South African Broadcasting Corporation's (SABC) offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, some wearing black tape across their mouths in the protest dubbed #BlackFriday on Twitter.Funded by taxpayers, the SABC has the widest reach of any South African broadcaster.SABC Kaizer Kganyago said the station was not engaged in censorship.
