(By Manawa Wright) Taranaki Daily news online Editor Rob Mitchell apologised today for reckless management of their online site by not properly filtering comments relating to two stories they posted on their website.
They were in relation to the customary rights claim for whitebait from south taranaki tribes of Ngaruahine.
Whilst being interviewed Mr Mitchell agreed that more could be done in future to make sure that the paper not is seen to incite this kind of racial undertone and failing to appropriately balance the views of both parties in future news pieces produced by the Taranaki Daily news.
