It seems bizarre that something that could have diplomatic consequences should be decided by a domestic TV censor.

Religious hatred...

Channel 44 fined 75,000 by Ofcom for hate speech directed at Ahmadiyya muslims

Full story: Ofcom on Religion...ofcom keep religious extremism in check

Ofcom has imposed a 75,000 fine on City News Network for failing to provide adequate protection for viewers.

The service Channel 44 -- an Urdu-language news and current affairs channel -- broadcast hate speech and material containing abusive treatment of the Ahmadiyya community.

Under the Broadcasting Code, licensees must not broadcast material which contains uncontextualised hate speech and abusive treatment of groups, religions or communities.

After an investigation, Ofcom concluded that the serious nature of the breaches of the Broadcasting Code warranted the imposition of statutory sanctions. These include a financial penalty and a direction to the broadcaster to broadcast a statement of Ofcom's findings on a date and in a form to be determined by Ofcom.

The fine of 75,000 will be paid by City News Network to HM Paymaster General.

 

 

Kinky Stunt...

Ofcom dismisses a few whinges about Russell Brand's Cosmic Vagina


Link Here 10th April 2019
Russell Brand's vagina biscuit sculpture on Great Celebrity British Bake Off has prompted complaints.

Russell was named star baker after creating a scene representing his wife giving birth, naming the creation the Portal to all life.

The edible treat kicked off a number of whinges to TV censor Ofco , with complainers claiming the stunt fell below generally accepted standards.

However, Ofcom has cleared the show of any wrongdoing.

We considered a small number of complaints about comments in this charity baking competition. In our view the remarks were light-hearted and not sexually explicit.
