State broadcast station TVNZ is being used as a campaign base by Labour Party activists.

Did management know what was going on in its Maori and Pacific Unit?

If not, why did they not know that Labour Party business was being done from there by manager Shane Taurima, the man with editorial control of his department?

Not only is Mr Taurima the Maori and Pacific Unit's manager, he is also a Labour Party activist, and could be standing as a Labour MP this election.

Following the revelations, Mr Taurima resigned earlier today.

Political editor Patrick Gower and former head of news and current affairs at TVNZ Bill Ralston join Paul to discuss what this means for the state broadcaster.
