Is the Michael Jackson music ban a slippery slope?

From Nine To Noon, 11:46 am on 12 March 2019

Media commentator Gavin Ellis talks to Kathryn about the decision by commercial radio stations to ban Michael Jackson's music and whether it is a slippery slope. Could they ban an artist because advertisers don't like his or her politics?.  Also, a ban of a different sort: Democrats won't accept Fox News as a venue for the next US presidential election debates.

The Times of India reports New Zealand radio becoming Michael Jackson-free.
