ANALYSIS OF BSA RULING AGAINST 'UNFAIR' CAMPBELL LIVE REPORT

Analysis by Alex Perrottet, contributing editor of Pacific Media Watch

AUCKLAND: (Pacific Media Watch): The Broadcasting Standards Authority ruled earlier this month that the complaint by the Attorney-General of Samoa against Campbell Live's report on the tsunami would not be upheld.

In response, the Samoan Prime Minister has vowed to appeal against the decision.

The Attorney-General lodged complaints against both the September 27 report and the November 1 report aired on TV3 in New Zealand.

Both complaints were brought on the grounds of accuracy and fairness, however the BSA ruled it did not have the authority to rule on the grounds of accuracy, as it involved determining whether the action taken by the Samoan government after the tsunami was adequate.

"It is not the role of this authority, nor are we able, to determine what action by the Samoan government would have been 'adequate' following a catastrophic natural disaster," it said.

The BSA report, signed on behalf of the authority by chair Peter Radich, said the Samoan government would have been better advised to make those complaints under the category of "balance".
