Text:A curtain of silence remains drawn around Queer Nation offices as the national gay TV programme's production company deals with the fallout from the Jonathan Marshall paparazzi affair. Marshall, a QN presenter, was revealed in weekend papers to have been involved in at least one car chase incident where he attempted to score photos of media-shy TVNZ current affairs frontman Mike Hoskings. TVNZ's TV2 network broadcasts Queer nation. Speculation is rife that his job may be on the line and that TVNZ is pressuring programme makers Livingston Productions to drop Marshall. However producer Andrew Whiteside has responded “no comment” to questions about TVNZ pressure, Marshall's future with the programme or what difficulties the incident is causing Queer Nation. Whiteside will only say that the current “no comment” stance is Queer Nation's own policy and not a directive from TVNZ.
