The complainant complained about a news feature that was broadcast on eNCA channel following a report during a news programme about a mass shooting in the USA. The complainant was of the opinion that the interview constituted news and therefore subject to the provisions of Clause 28.1 of the Code of Conduct for Subscription Broadcasting Licensees.  The interview was conducted with the Director of Gun Free South Africa. The interview did not constitute news and therefore Clause 28.1 is not applicable. Clause 28.2 was applicable but not contravened as the statements complained of were clearly comments that were honest expressions of opinion and clearly presented and indicated as comment.
