9:05 Mediawatch

Mediawatch this week looks at a dramatic TV expose which brought a serious food safety issue to light, but also drew fire from journalists on a point of principle. Mediawatch also asks if Maori Television got the balance right when it screened a controversial documentary the Chinese government didn't want you to see this week - and after last week's report on the war against "going forward," we find that it's not only New Zealanders who want to drive that phrase out of the media for good.
