Broadcasting Standards Authority,
Complaint – TVNZ
I wish to lay a complaint against TVNZ for an item included in a Close Up programme.
Featuring an interview with Dr Norman Maclean and Ms Allison McCulloch. The interview was on Close Up on Tuesday 16 October 2012.
It is the opinion of this Society that the item breached Guideline 5a of the Code of Broadcasting Practice: Broadcasters should make reasonable efforts to ensure that current affairs and factual programming:
· Is accurate in relation to all material points of fact and/or
· Does not mislead.
