The Prime Minister, as the Chairman of the Board of the Tonga Broadcasting Commission, had warned the Manager and senior executives of TBC that there is a limit to Media Freedom. He had warned the TBC about broadcasting "biased reports... criticising government" and he therefore thought the stopping of the broadcasting of political news was appropriate.
