New Zealand's oldest national news organisation, the New Zealand Press Association, is now on death row because one of this country's biggest publishers has decided to pull the plug.

And Mediawatch also looks at the reporting of Lotto fever, in a week that a record-breaking jackpot was up for grabs.
