Bradbury banned from Radio New Zealand for criticising John Key
NZ descends further into Rightwing dictatorship as last bastion of independent media forced to toe National Party line
Broadcaster and media commentator Martyn Bradbury has been banned from state broadcaster Radio New Zealand for criticising Prime Minister John Key on air.
Not being satisfied with having the entire mainstream corporate media acting as their propaganda machine, the Government last year appointed former National Prime Minister Jim Bolger’s press secretary, Richard Griffin, to the head of RNZ’s board. Since then, interviews with Government Ministers on Morning Report have resembled cosy chats, as amiable lapdog presenters fail to hold the National Party to account.
Our democracy has never been so fragile, and is in genuine danger from this anti-democratic Government and their stranglehold on information.
Time to wake up New Zealand!
* Radio New Zealand have taken the audio off their website. Apparently they don’t want us to be able to make up our own mind. So, here’s an alternative link to hear Martyn Bradbury’s comments.
