BSA Releases 4 Decisions

The Authority has partially upheld a complaint over the accuracy of an item on Newshub Live at 6pm about a person alleged to have harmed greyhounds. The complainant alleged details about the accused were inaccurate and images of an unrelated dog accompanying the report were misleading. The BSA found details on the accused weren't materially inaccurate. The broadcaster was right to uphold the complaint initially in relation to the images used, but took insufficient action to remedy the likely reputational damage to the handler and industry.
