BSA Releases 5 Decisions

A promo for Comedy Gala aired during Newshub Live at 6pm, stating ‘Prepare your pelvic floor, as you run the risk of wetting yourself’, did not breach broadcasting standards, the BSA has found. The Authority found the statement was a light-hearted joke directed at people generally, not just women, and was suitable for a PG-rated environment. The joke would not have encouraged the denigration of, or discrimination against women. See this and other recently released decisions here.
