Complaint about Nightline nudity thrown out

3 News 01 Nov 2010
Conservative lobbyist group Family First has criticised the Broadcasting Standards Authority for not upholding its complaint about a Nightline story featuring full frontal nudity. In June, 3 News reporter Dave Goosselink reported on the closing down of Dunedin student pub The Gardies. To celebrate, a group of students held a game of nude rugby. Footage from the match was included in the story, which drew a complaint from Family First director Bob McCoskrie. “The morally dysfunctional BSA has given the green light to full frontal nudity in our current events and news programmes and has no problem with sexual innuendo and offensive comments,” says Mr McCoskrie.
