Well done Deborah!

My long standing desire for better media scrutiny is fast becoming a reality. On top of Media Cow, we have had ACT MP Deborah Coddington publish a 10,000 word study of the bias on National Radio.

A comparison was done between National Radio, Newstalk ZB and the NZ Herald with regards to airtime for pro-market and pro-interventionist views. The results had National Radio 49% to 26% interventionists over market, NZ Herald (hardly a right wing publication) 36% to 32% and Newstalk ZB 39% to 35%.

This is one of the reasons I don’t like Governments owning broadcasters.
