Media freedom on Nauru, in the Pacific - analysis

From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 5 September 2018

Jacinda Ardern has arrived for the leader's retreat at the Pacific Islands Forum in Nauru where she's expected to ask for details about the detention of TVNZ journalist, Barbara Dreaver. Ms Dreaver who is there to cover the Forum was interviewing a refugee outside a restaurant when she was picked up by police. She says they asked for her visa, told her she was breaching her conditions and cancelled her accreditation for the Pacific Islands Forum. It's part of a wider pattern of restricting media coverage across the Pacific. Sally Round is among a team of RNZ Pacific reporters who've been covering Nauru for many years. Professor David Robie is the director of the Pacific Media Centre at Auckland University of Technology. They talk to Susie Ferguson.
