Yesterday’s Dom Post editorial:
Should the mainstream media and its self-regulatory body become part of a government? Hell, no. Even the most democratic of administrations should be kept well away from independent media outlets.
Sadly for the Dom Post, the same day Labour released its policy which indicates their interest in doing exactly that, and merging the Press Council and the BSA, so that all media come under Government control.
Labour have spent three years blaming the media for their unpopularity. They just love the idea of being able to appoint people who can fine editors for not being “fair” to them.Tags: Dominion Post, editorials, Labour
