Critic Te Arohi editor defends 'objectionable' magazine cover

From Morning Report, 7:48 am on 23 May 2018

Hundreds of copies of the University of Otago's student magazine Critic Te Arohi have been removed and destroyed by staff at the campus. There were complaints about the magazine's cover which features an explicit illustration of a naked woman. The theme of this month's magazine is menstruation. The magazine's editor Joel McManus tells Guyon Espiner it was "hurtful" the magazines were destroyed without warning.
