Christchurch Call tested for first time

From Morning Report, 7:49 am on 11 October 2019

The Christchurch Call has been tested by the Halle attack on a synagogue and kebab shop in Germany in which two people were killed. The gunman streamed live to a gaming website Twitch, which is owned by Amazon. Twitch removed the video from its site, suspended the user's account, and briefed other tech companies, so they could also respond. In New Zealand, chief censor David Shanks quickly made the video illegal to view, possess or distribute, including on social media. He Joins us on Morning report.
