Takeaways

Corruption and cronyism can occur even in relatively calm and prosperous countries like New Zealand. A free and fair media is essential for a functioning democracy. Funding and sponsorship agreements can influence the content and bias of news media. Unchecked lies and disinformation pose a threat to democracy and public trust in the media. Gaslighting and deplatforming are tactics used to suppress free speech and dissenting opinions. There is a need for an inquiry to investigate discussions about suppressing free speech and collusion in news coverage. Public trust in the media is declining, and there is a need for transparency and accountability. Journalists and media outlets should prioritize accountability and avoid suppressing opposing viewpoints.
