The Authority has released a decision

The Authority has today released a decision which does not uphold a complaint that a Newshub item reporting on the arrest of Sir Ron Brierley for alleged possession of ‘child pornography’ should have instead referred to ‘child exploitation’. In the decision, the Authority provides guidance on the evolving language associated with child sexual abuse material and encourages broadcasters to exercise judgement when selecting terminology in reporting on this subject.
