Brent Edwards - Press Freedom

From Sunday Morning, 11:45 am on 3 May 2015

May 3 is World Press Freedom Day, a date which celebrates the fundamental principles of press freedom, evaluates press freedom around the world, defends the media from attacks on their independence and pays tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the exercise of their profession. Listeners may know Brent Edwards as Radio New Zealand's political editor, but today he's talking to us as EPMU Print and Media Council convener and New Zealand's representative with the International Federation of Journalists. The annual Press Freedom Debate will be held at the Backbencher tavern in Wellington on Thursday, May 7. Tickets are $25 and can be bought from Brent by emailing him: brent.edwards@radionz.co.nz
