Media coverage of accused Christchurch shooter, naming or not?

From Nine To Noon, 11:42 am on 26 March 2019

Media commentator Gavin Ellis talks to Kathryn about the how the news media will refer to the Christchurch mosques murder accused, in light of the Prime Minister saying he will be nameless as far as she is concerned. Also, changes at the Whanganui Chronicle. The paper will still have an editor, but the person won't be called an editor and will have 'commercial responsibilities'. Gavin Ellis is a media commentator and former editor of the New Zealand Herald. He can be contacted on gavin.ellis@xtra.co.nz
