Media commentator Gavin Ellis

From Nine To Noon, 11:45 am on 7 February 2017

Gavin asks whether it's time for news organisations to ignore the lower marae altogether on Waitangi Weekend. He also looks at the harrowing recounting of Donella Knox's killing of her autistic daughter, arguing it is yet another example of why we continue to need long-form journalism.
