Jennings says the High Court's judgment is an erosion into
media independence. Corporate Media Say Judge's Ruling Challenges Media Independence Two media bosses have warned that a High Court ruling that forced TV3 to include United Future's Peter Dunne and the Progressive Party's Jim Anderton in a leaders' debate has caused a concerning precedent that could erode media independence.
