Fiji's peak trade union bodies have asked the country's media not to report what they see as one sided pro government news.

The Fiji Trade Union Congress and the Fiji Islands Council of Trade Unions have jointly condemned what they say is the shutting out of their views in the state censored media.

They've called on media outlets to either publish balanced items, or nothing at all.

FTUC General Secretary says the unions are frustrated by what they see as propaganda rather than journalism.

Presenter: Bruce Hill

Speakers: Felix Anthony, FTUC General Secretary; Stanley Simpson, Fiji Broadcasting news editor
