In March I lodged a formal complaint with the Broadcasting Standards Authority. It was a complaint about a nasty piece of Chinese Stalinist propaganda about the Tibetan uprising.

It was broadcast on regional channel Canterbury Television.

Although the Broadcasting Standards Authority, admittedly, receives many complaints I didn’t imagine that some six months later I would still be waiting for a ruling.

The Olympic Games have come and gone and, yet, my complaint is still sitting in a computer somewhere in Wellington.

Such a lenghy delay has not only 'neutered' my complaint, but it has allowed Canterbury Television to quietly move on - seemingly immune from examination and criticism.
