It wasn’t just a few bloggers and a few tweets that got yesterday’s Supreme Court decision on water rights totally wrong.
RadioLive broke into their programme with a newsflash and host Duncan Garner started to opine about how he agreed with the decision.
But then of course, came the correction. Oops.
Not a great day at the office for decent journalists trained and skilled.
I actually feel sorry for Duncan on this, he was fed a bum steer by the newsroom and other journalists who couldn’t wait to blurt their undisguised glee across Twitter and the air-waves.
UPDATE: Mediaworks has now blocked the Youtube clip. To be fair to RadioLive the audio is still here: http://www.radiolive.co.
Split across the “Wednesday” 1500-1515 segment. The newsflash comes at 11 minutes 35 into this stream.
The reason RadioLive has blocked the Youtube video is because they don’t archive this stuff – and would prefer no one heard it.
Here is the audio anyway.
