Media Take: Journalist Rachel Stewart on tackling the dairy beast
Writing on the subject of dairy industry pollution has resulted in dead possums in the letterbox of journalist Rachel Stewart, notes on her car, and death and rape threats.
Stewart, named Opinion Writer of the Year at the 2016 Canon Media Awards, appeared on Media Take on Tuesday night to discuss the attacks on her credibility following her columns.
She was previously president of the Whanganui chapter of Federated Farmers - " so I'm somebody that used to be in the tribe, and then turned out of the tribe a little bit".
Earlier, hosts Russell Brown and Toi Iti and guests discussed the impacts of the dairy industry on the environment and New Zealand's increasing reliance on commercial farming, after the recent advertising campaigns released by Fonterra.
Full episodes of Media Take can be seen on demand on the Maori Television website from 9 am Wednesdays.
