RNZ – Nine To Noon: Gavin Ellis on Media Issues – Paddy Gower on Weed, Mel Bunce on journalism

17/09/2019

Kathryn Ryan talks with Gavin Ellis on media issues.

For me this is an essential part of my week. I really appreciate what Ellis says, even when I disagree with him.

Gavin talks to Kathryn about “Paddy Gower on Weed”, suggesting it was high on emotion and a compelling anecdote but light on science. Also Mel Bunce’s new book “The Broken Estate” has a spectrum of recommendations to improve journalism in New Zealand.

Readers might like to look at this post as well which was about Mel Bunce.

Plus this one, also from Mediawatch, which looked at Gower’s over hyped documentary as well.
