Media commentator Gavin Ellis - BSA on mosque attacks coverage

From Nine To Noon, 11:46 am on 20 August 2019

Gavin talks to Lynn about the just released Broadcasting Standards Authority decision on four complaints lodged over New Zealand broadcast coverage of the Christchurch mosque attacks. Also, Nine and NZME are looking to re-open Stuff merger talks, and a $1 million pilot scheme to boost the coverage of local democracy issues, which will provide jobs for eight journalists. Journalists who'd like to apply for one of the jobs can do so by visiting RNZ's website. Gavin Ellis is a media commentator and former editor of the New Zealand Herald.  He can be contacted on gavin.ellis@xtra.co.nz
