The Taxpayers Union reveals NZ on Air has just announced grants for 110 journalists to be funded by the Government. The split includes:
- Stuff: 20
- Radio NZ: 20
- NZME: 20
- Maori TV: 7
NZ on Air will only basically fund organisations that agree to their woke viewpoint on the Treaty (you have to agree with the left view that it created a partnership rather than the right view that it was about property rights) so this will lead to 110 left leaning journalists who all share the same basic viewpoint as parties of the left. It’s not that these 110 extra journalists will be consciously biased towards the Government. It is that they will share the same worldview and just naturally be sympathetic to it, and hostile to viewpoints outside their worldview.
