Ofcom Broadcast Bulletins
This issue was highlighted by the recent Ofcom decision to order Channel 4 News to broadcast a summary of its determination that the programme had seriously breached Rule 5.1 of the Broadcasting Code (lack of due accuracy in news).
Poor CNN International – and with them all TV news broadcasters. Taking decisions about what violent material to show and when are some of the toughest calls they have to make.
TAKE CAREFUL NOTE OF THE NEW GUIDANCE ON RULE 2.1. This is especially so if you a religious channel which might talk about faith healing or a service which features alternative medicine.
