This paper discusses the danger that the BPO, which should be obliged to

act as a bulwark against public authorities intervening in program production,

may threaten the freedom of broadcasting and intimidate broadcasters.

  The aim of this paper is to investigate several cases in which TV stations

submitted their reports in order to officially express objections to BPO’s decisions

and to clarify the problems of these decisions and issues that the BPO

should resolve.

  Through the examination of four cases that fit the above conditions, some

problematic decisions were revealed which the BRC, one of the BPO committees,

had made. These include one case in which the BRC pointed out ethical

problems in TV programs based on a misunderstanding of the facts and mistaken

interpretations by the BRC, and another case in which they concluded

that human rights were violated based on information that had not been broadcasted.

  The BRC should have an obligation to examine factual information, conduct

verification, clarify the standards of judgment, share their understanding of

broadcasting ethics with TV stations, in order to make equal and fair judgments

to regain the trust of broadcasters.

The BPO should take these BRC-related problems seriously and become a

true guardian of the freedom of broadcasting, defending the media from the

authorities that intend to intervene in the broadcasting industry.
