Gribble and Television New Zealand Ltd - 1999-241
1999-241

Summary Evidence from the trial of the men accused of murdering Beverley Bouma was reported in a One Network News item. The item included an extract from the prosecuting lawyer’s description of how the killing occurred. It was broadcast on TV One, at 6. 00pm on 11 October 1999. Mr Gribble complained to Television New Zealand Ltd, the broadcaster, that the detailed description in the item was not suitable to include in a 6. 00pm news programme, as that was a time during which children could be watching television. TVNZ responded that, while its news editors were always mindful of the child audience that might watch news programmes, those programmes necessarily carry unpleasant content where that content is relevant and important....

ComplaintOne Network News – economic report – deficit – inaccurate – omission of information FindingsStandard G14 – no further information necessary – not inaccurate – simplicity important in reporting news in accessible way – no uphold This headnote does not form part of the decision. Summary An item on One Network News broadcast on TV One at 6pm on 21 December 1999 concerned New Zealand’s deficit. It was reported that economists and politicians had emphasised that increased saving and exports were required to improve the deficit. K H Peter Kammler complained to Television New Zealand Ltd, the broadcaster, that the item was inaccurately reported because "invisibles" such as the profits of overseas shareholders were not mentioned as a major factor in contributing to the deficit. He also contended that the suggestion made in the item that increasing exports would assist in reducing the deficit was "fraught with… difficulties"....

Barker and Television New Zealand Limited - 2000-033
2000-033

Summary A One Network News item reporting on the situation in East Timor included three photographs which had been smuggled out of the territory. The photographs were said to depict the severed head of a man impaled on a stake, the body of a woman who it was alleged had been raped, and the body of a beheaded man being dragged along on a rope. The item was broadcast on TV One on 23 September 1999 commencing at 6. 00pm. Mrs Barker complained to Television New Zealand Limited, the broadcaster, that none of the photographs was fit for broadcast at that time of night. That was supposed to be a safe viewing time for young people, she wrote. She added that the photographs were "horrific", and that it was "totally irresponsible" and "totally inappropriate" to show them without any warning....

1999-163

Summary A man who emulated the lifestyle of the fictional Austin Powers character was the subject of a news report on TV One broadcast between 6. 00–7. 00pm on 11 July 1999. In that context, reference was made to the recently released Austin Powers film "The Spy Who Shagged Me". Mr Schwabe complained to Television New Zealand Ltd, the broadcaster, that the word "shagged" was an offensive macho term which degraded women and was not acceptable during a family hour broadcast. TVNZ acknowledged that the word "shagged" contained strong sexual innuendo, but argued that its level of offensiveness had been considerably moderated. It noted that the word was used only once during the item and that was in the context of the film’s title. It did not consider that that single reference breached any broadcasting standards....
