The truth starts to come out

From 3 News [emphasis mine]:

A spokesperson for Radio New Zealand released this statement to 3 News this afternoon.

“Mr Bradbury’s invitation to take part in The Panel discussion segment was withdrawn because his personal comments about the Prime Minister were deemed to be in breach of Radio New Zealand’s editorial requirements for fairness and balance. One of his comments was regarded as being potentially defamatory.

“Mr Bradbury’s comments were inconsistent with information he had provided to programme producers before going on air.

Mr Bradbury later apologised to the programme’s executive producer. It was made clear to him that while his invitation to appear as an occasional guest on The Panel was being withdrawn, it was not a ‘lifelong ban’ and it did not apply to other Radio New Zealand programmes.”

That is quite a different story from what the lap blogs, Labour MPs and the sacked Radio NZ blog post reader, Martyn Bradbury have been saying.

The sacked Radio NZ blog post reader, Martyn Bradbury also accused me of lying about the reasons he was given the arse. At the time I was just guessing as to the reasons but Radio NZ have now confirmed that they were misled as to what he was going to be talking about.

He was not banned for criticising the PM, he was banned for being a dick.
