From Nine To Noon, 11:47 am on 9 April 2019

Media commentator Gavin Ellis talks to Kathryn about the Fiji Prime Minister's apology to three wrongfully-detained New Zealand journalists, claiming it rings hollow when it comes from the man responsible for the dire state of media freedom in Fiji. Also, an Australian academic lays into his country's media for their coverage of the Christchurch attacks. Gavin Ellis is a media commentator and former editor of the New Zealand Herald.
