Mosque shooter's manifesto 'objectionable' - Censor

From Morning Report, 7:47 am on 25 March 2019

Free speech advocates are calling the censor's decision to ban the Christchurch attacker's written document an "improper use of censorship powers". The publication has officially been classified as objectionable by chief censor David Shanks, making it illegal to possess a copy of the document or to share it. Last week video footage of the shooting was also classified as objectionable material. In the Auckland studio is the chief censor David Shanks.
