Press Council Rejects Complaint Against NZ Herald

Press Council Rejects Press Council Complaint Against New Zealand Herald

The Palestine Human Rights Campaign ( P.H.R.C. ) had its complaint against the New Zealand Herald to the Press Council REJECTED.

The New Zealand Herald, especially over the 3 years of the current Intifada, has refused to cover any of the activities of the P.H.R.C. ( over 36 rallies ) or accept any articles written by members.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal.
