Complaint Type – Sensitive Issues

The NNC may consider a complaint about sensitive issues such as use of language, racism, sexism, or bias against a social, religious or political group. Reporting on courts, sexual assault or minors can be sensitive and may involve legal restrictions. Publicity can be embarrassing, but the courts have rules that balance the need to maintain a public legal system with the need for a fair trial and protection of victims. People who have chosen a public life, such as politicians and celebrities, can expect more public scrutiny than a private individual.
