Māori journalism in Aotearoa New Zealand has become a vibrant industry, reporting through print, radio, television and the internet. This book looks at the history of Māori journalism and the elements that make it what it is today. The author examines the way that news values common in English-speaking countries are reinterpreted for a Māori worldview and analyses news stories to show how Māori perspectives are expressed. She also identifies how elements of whaikōrero have been refashioned for news and the ways tapu and noa are managed by news teams.
A host of well-known reporters share their perspectives on their work. They describe how they got into reporting, and we learn what happens as they gather information and produce their stories. In particular, we see how these journalists balance the demands of journalism and tikanga.
