Here is a run down of the 5 most important stories on One News and 3 News tonight.  Please leave your comments on the bulletins in the comments below.

ONE News

1. Salvage continues onboard Rena (Matt McLean, live cross)
2. Containers removed from BoP beaches
3. Oil heading towards eastern BoP (Heather du Plessis Allan, live cross)
4. Rena impacting BoP businesses (Amy Kelley)
5. Eliota Fuimaono Sapolu charges upheld (Melissa Stokes)

3 News

1. Salvage continues onboard Rena (Simon Shepherd, live cross)
2. Poor navigation decision responsible for Rena’s crash (Charlotte Shipman)
3. Containers removed from BoP beaches (Jenny Suo)
4. Business as usual for most tourist operators in BoP (Tova O’Brien)
5. Rena now an election issue (Rachel Morton)

Commentary

I thought TV3′s spin on how Rena is affecting business was good.  Most stories so far have been how bad the disaster has been for businesses but for the majority, it’s business as usual and by constantly saying how bad it is, the international media are painting an incorrect picture which has the potential to have a negative impact on tourism.

TV3′s coverage of Winston Peter’s speech in Tauranga and the politicisation of the Rena 6 weeks out from the election also earned merit.
