The Marlborough Express

The Marlborough Express is a newspaper servicing the Marlborough area of New Zealand. Its headquarters are in Blenheim and has been published there since 1866.[1] It became a daily in 1880 and took over its rivals the Marlborough Times in 1895 and the Marlborough Press in 1948. In 1998 it was sold to Independent Newspapers Limited (INL). It is now a division of Fairfax.

The paper made headlines nationally in 2013 when it published a cartoon by Al Nisbet about the Government's introduction of food in schools that was widely criticised as "racist".[2][3] The editor of the paper defended the cartoon's publication, saying it was meant to generate discussion.[4] Race relations commissioner Susan Devoy called it "out of line".[5]
