    I am not so worried about what they withhold, but the spin they put on the news they do deem worthy to relate to us affects a lot of people who do not look past the first layer of trash to see the true garbage beneath.

    A little while ago I made a post about our Broadcasting standards Authority.

    Here is their latest decision if for some reason any of you are interested. It concerned an article that one news aired back in January. Someone complained that it was misleading and their complaint was upheld.

    I can’t find the video of the statement that one news was forced to air admitting that the article was misleading.
