5 Opinion May 11 @ 07:08 PM
One can tell this radio station's religious bias - by the way it includes some - more often than others' and not treat all faiths' equally. This is especially not helped when this radio station's Manager and some of it's radio hosts' unashamedly express their disdain of a person(s)/community of another faith. Such actions' come to 'bear rotten fruit' in later years'. Ignore this; you'll learn the hard way! Kia ora!
