In a shocking display of media censorship, the major daily newspapers have all banded together to pull the publication of a full page advertisement at the 11th hour.

Here is the offending (!!) advert….
But the NZ Herald did everything they could to block and delay the advertisement, and then at the very last minute, Stuff (Dom Post and Christchurch Press) and the Otago Daily Times pulled the advertisements after approving them.
We believe that this was as a result of communications between the publications up to the CEO level. It should concern all of us that newspaper editors are now banding together to censor advertisements that they disagree with. Where does this place their coverage of the political debate leading up to the General Election? What else are they censoring?
And the fact that they are working together is disturbing. Has the government funding of these media outlets spelt the end of independent civil discourse on controversial social issues? It appears so.
