Today we released decisions on two complaints, one of which was partially upheld under the accuracy standard. This complaint related to an item on Te Karere about Green MP Marama Davidson’s protest trip to Gaza, and in particular the reporter’s reference to Israel’s ‘illegal’ blockade at Gaza.
The other complaint was about a Story item which discussed the accountability of judges in New Zealand. The Authority did not uphold the complaint, finding that the accountability of New Zealand’s judiciary was an issue of public interest, and that the item was a valuable exercise of the broadcaster’s right to freedom of expression.
