Auckland's mayor has doubled down on his contentious plan to sell the council's shares of the Airport in a bid to rectify the city's big budget shortfall,

In a speech this morning, Wayne Brown said this year's budget, is one of the hardest in Auckland's history.

He also cherry picked the media he wanted in the room and described many of his council members as financially illiterate. 

Charlotte Cook asked deputy mayor, Desley Simpson, why several major media organisations weren't invited.
