On The Nation this weekend: Labour, National, The Media
This weekend on The Nation… Labour’s had its worst election result in 92 years, so what happens next? We’ll talk to former Labour president Jim Anderton, CTU president Helen Kelly, and tech entrepreneur and past donor Selwyn Pellett about the party’s future direction and the leadership.
Then, with an unprecedented majority, our reporter Torben Akel examines what’s at the top of National’s to-do list during its third term.
And how did the media perform during the campaign? We’ll turn the spotlight on the fourth estate with Mark Boyd, a former TV executive completing a PhD on election coverage, Internet Party press secretary Pam Corkery, and Sunday Star-Times editor Jonathan Milne.
We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: former Labour Party president Mike Williams, Fairfax political reporter Andrea Vance, and the freshly-retired National MP Tau Henare.
The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays.
