Final Press Council Decision: Investigate Magazine

Media Release
15 May 2008

Final Press Council Decision – Investigate Magazine

Air New Zealand today welcomed the New Zealand Press Council’s reconfirmation of its decision upholding the airline’s complaint against Investigate magazine over inaccuracies in its September 2007 cover story on charter flights.

After considering additional material provided by Ian Wishart of Investigate magazine, the New Zealand Press Council determined that it did not require a re-opening of the case.

The adjudication of last month stands.

The Press Council upheld complaints that the cover headline and some details in the article were inaccurate; that the article lacked fairness and that the cover montage of an armed soldier, a queue of people and the familiar Koru on the tail of an Air New Zealand jet was misleading and inaccurate.

Investigate is now required to publish the essence of the adjudication, giving it fair prominence in the magazine.
