Tim joins us in the studio this morning to talk about some heavy media news in Aotearoa's music industry, what's happening with the Australian government and Google, and a story about attempted murder on Radio Virsa's Harnek Singh.
There's plenty to talk about in the world of media at the moment and lucky for us, Tim is here to talk us through the proposed law changes in Australia to make Facebook pay for news, and the deep fakes that are popping up around us. Phew.
Tim Batt's back with Mediabatt and all the latest in media talk near and far. First he chats about what's up with Sky TV's broadcasting trucks (it's not good), before launching into a fantastic pocket history of Julian Assange's Wikileaks and the latest in the international espionage trials and accusations that surround the man. Whakarongo mai!
Tim returns for Mediabatt to take us through what's been happening in the media around Aotearoa and internationally. Covering stuff's recent apology for their historically racist journalism, and some proposed legislation in Australia.
