Here at Newstalk ZB we’ve got a lot of messages concerned about the government controlling the media in the last week. 

These concerns have often accompanied by a video of Newshub’s Tova O’Brien talking about a document dump. 

Kerre McIvor spoke to Tova to confirm that the government did not pay TV3 to shelve the story.  

She says it was a story from May last year, and that the Prime Minister’s office was not happy about the story being leaked to Newshub at the time.
