During an episode of Bomber’s Blog, broadcast on Triangle TV at 9.45pm, the presenter used offensive language while reviewing the week’s political news. The same language was displayed onscreen. The Authority did not uphold the complaint that this breached the good taste and decency standard: political commentary and satire are important forms of speech, and taking into account relevant contextual factors most viewers would not have been offended by the language used.
