Mediaworks denied they were the leak

Stuff reports:

New documents cast doubt on Newshub’s claim that it admitted leaking an interest rate decision before it was investigated.  …

However Governor Graeme Wheeler had earlier briefed the central bank’s board that  had had to be prodded into admitting the leak.

“MediaWorks conducted its own investigation and initially said they had found no leak,” the Reserve Bank minutes of March 17 read.

“However, after prompting from Deloitte, MediaWorks had searched again and found the emails containing the leaked information.”

The Reserve Bank declined to comment. MediaWorks has been approached for comment.

Doesn’t really help their brand, having an OIA reveal they were economical with the truth.
