The NZN Difference

To NZ Newswire, speed is essential but accuracy is more important. As it is the media other media turn to, there's an inherent trust that we get the story right.

Accuracy and impartiality are part of the NZ Newswire DNA.

NZN news has no political axe to grind, nor advertisers to please. News value is paramount and the independence and reporting integrity are guarded above all else.
