Mediawatch – Government ponders proposal for public media – 01122019

01/12/2019

Colin Peacock has a good article and audio here

This month the government will decide how to fund public broadcasting in the future – and ponder replacing RNZ and TVNZ with a brand new organisation. This week Mediawatch looks at how Australia, Ireland and Canada fund their public media – and what they get for their money.

We need to understand a lot more about this. There is potential for too much media control by politicians here,especially when you look at some of the comments made by some politicians since the Christchurch Shooting.

Furthermore such a media behemoth in NZ terms would pose a serious threat to other media sources and to freedom of expression
