Pravda: New Zealand PM Announces Initiative To Fund Journalists Who Write Government-Friendly Stories on COVID

by Jamie White

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced that taxpayer funds would be set aside for journalists who produce stories pre-approved by the government.

Ardern explained the initiative during a so-called “Democracy Summit” last week to representatives of the U.S., Australia, Denmark, and Norway.

“We’ve also seen the spread of misinformation on COVID-19, particularly through social media,” Ardern said. “We made it a priority to establish a public interest journalism fund to help our media continue to produce stories that keep New Zealanders informed.”
