oppose use of te reo Māori in media
The Media Council has rejected a complaint which opposed the Herald's use of te reo Māori words.
It said it was up to a news media organisation to decide the extent to which it wishes to use Māori words.
The Media Council informed the Herald of the complaint, following a Broadcasting Standards Authority (BSA) announcement which declined complaints of TVNZ using too much te reo on mainstream television.
The article, which received a significant response, reported several Māori leaders' responses to the resignation of former chief executive of Oranga Tamariki, Grainne Moss, and the appointment of Sir Wira Gardiner as acting chief executive.
