Commentary

The big story of the day is the Ports of Auckland’s loss of Maersk to Tauranga in the middle of industrial action.

ACT’s Charter Schools policy gets the twice over on One News. While it’s the Labour leadership ongoing story that makes 3 News.  

3 News’ Blood Diamond story seemed more of a 60 Minutes piece than a top 5 story.  It’s hard to know with these types of stories as to whether the the footage is actually relative. Lots of machine gun toting Africans look dangerous and dramatic but could have been from any conflict in the region.
