When a Radio NZ journalist moves into PR for the Labour party does that constitute a shift to the Right?


Interestingly I think this is the 5th journalist in the last three years to join the Labour or Greens media teams. By contrast, in the last three years I can only recall one gallery journalist going to work for the Government – despite the fact they have several times more staff.
