Another neutral board member

The Herald reports:

An board member has resigned after making a social post calling new Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters' attack on media independence “malicious” and him being “the worst of this gang of thugs”. …

NZ On Air board member Andrew Shaw, a screen sector consultant has previously worked as a host, posted today on : “Winston Peters attack's independence of media [sic]. He's not truthful. He's not accurate. He's malicious and he is here on behalf of international . His return is the worst of this gang of thugs.”

This shows how bad things have got, that a public sector board member thinks he can refer to the new Government as a gang of thugs just because his preferred parties lost a democratic election.
