Terekia v Maori Television (16/019)
Publisher: Maori Television
The Chairman noted the concerns of the Complainant that the content was inaccurate.
The Chairman noted the Publisher said it had relied on the information provided to it and had updated the story on receipt of the complaint.
Noting the self-regulatory actions of the Publisher to amend the content, the Chairman considered it would serve no further purpose to place the matter before the OMSA Committee Members for consideration and ruled the matter was settled.
Ruling Date: 22 August 2016
Chairman’s Ruling: Settled
