Today we released decisions on eight complaints, two of which were upheld.
The first upheld complaint related to an on-air outburst by Martin Devlin during The Devlin Radio Show, regarding a text message he received from the complainant, TF. Mr Devlin read out the complainant’s mobile phone number several times on air, in breach of their privacy. The Authority ordered privacy compensation to the complainant of $2,000 and costs to the Crown of $2,000.
The second upheld complaint related to an item on Story about unconscious bias, in which the complainant, JW, was effectively singled out due to editing techniques, and featured without her knowledge or consent. The Authority found that this breached the fairness standard.
