A politician should be nowhere near the media merger

The Herald reports:

Former First MP and Minister has been put in charge of the Government’s plans to assess a TVNZ/ RNZ merger as she “gets stuff done”.

Martin’s group will oversee how the business case, being produced by Deloitte, could be implemented in “real life”.

think it is highly inappropriate for a former politician to be in charge of what should be an independent group to look at whether and RNZ should be merged.

We already have a huge issue in NZ with the lack of ideological diversity in the NZ media, and this proposed merger could make it worse.
