From Morning Report, 6:14 am on 6 December 2019

Leaders from Dunedin's Samoan community have met with management of the local paper to express the hurt and harm caused by a cartoon making light of the Samoa measles epidemic.

They say they were pleased that the Otago Daily Times acknowledged the racism of the cartoon.

But as Dominic Godfrey reports, the ODT editor says he stopped short of that.
