Three new decisions on TV and radio programmes released

The Authority released three new decisions on complaints today, with none of the complaints upheld.

Two decisions related to accuracy in news and current affairs reporting. The remaining decision looked at whether an interviewee’s language during a radio interview was appropriate for broadcast. The Authority recognised the value of hearing from New Zealanders in their own words in news reporting and agreed that, in the context of this particular case, the interviewee’s language was unlikely to cause widespread undue offence or distress.
