TV3 Decision Statement from Fairfax

11TH August 2005

Statement from Peter O’Hara

Editor-in-Chief Fairfax New Zealand

Fairfax New Zealand firmly believes the judgement on the TV3 Dunne/Anderton case is an alarming intrusion into the democratic process and the operations of a business.

It is of deep concern that the Broadcasting Act has been brought to bear in this way.

While the print media may consider itself fortunate not to be subject to such statute, Fairfax takes no satisfaction from that and sees the court's decision as having dangerous implications for a free and robust media in this country.

Fairfax will work with our colleagues in the media industry to pursue any available options to redress this matter
