Media: 2017 election year

From The Weekend, 9:07 am on 22 January 2017

2017 is an election year. Will it be a goldmine for our political journalists, or a big yawn? Did John Key's resignation late last year really stir things up? Will New Zealanders bother to vote or can the media shake off voter apathy?

So many questions for panellists Tracy Watkins (Political Editor of the Dominion Post), columnist for multiple outlets Toby Manhire, RNZ Political Editor Jane Patterson, and Mediawatch's Colin Peacock.
