Media asking Government Ministers for help with a complaint

An interesting OIA find over here. A feminist who is against the changes to the Births Act to allow a change of sex on the birth certificate had been writing op-eds that were published on . After complaints Scoop not only stopped her contributing further, but deleted all her previous contributions without informing her.

She complained the Council. As part of Scoop’s defence the then editor wrote to a Green Party Minister and Under-Secretary asking for assistance with the complaint (which was dismissed).

What is interesting is the editor of a media outlet, asking a Minister and Under-Secretary for help. Scoop is known to be left-leaning but this interaction seems to be something new.
