BSA Releases 3 Decisions

The BSA has upheld a complaint that a Newshub item discussing the alleged misuse of public funds for safety improvements at a greyhound racetrack was unbalanced and inaccurate. It found the item was presented in a way that favoured the perspectives of those critical of the racing club’s actions, without giving reasonable opportunities to provide balance from the other side of the story. A number of factual errors meant, overall, viewers were materially misled. This and other recently released decisions can be seen here.
