Transphobic comments were made during a morning show on the 3/11/09 and today 9/11/09 on Nova during the Breakfast program. For nearly 5 minutes on the 3/11/09 Transgender people were discriminated against and vilified on air by Meshell, Ash and Tim with Ben Teo. This was a blatant vilification attack on Transgender community and also was placed on the Nova Website as a podcast and left up for nearly a week for public download. Nova has done this on several occasions and after many complaints they continue to breed hatred over the radiowaves. Proscribed Matter 1.3 A licensee must not broadcast a program which: (a) is likely to incite, encourage or present for its own sake violence or brutality; (b) simulate news or events in such a way as to mislead or alarm listeners; (c) present as desirable: (i) the misuse of alcoholic liquor; or (ii) the use of illegal drugs, narcotics or tobacco. (d) depicts suicide favourably or presents suicide as a means of achieving a desired result; or (e) is likely to incite or perpetuate hatred against or vilify any person or group on the basis of age, ethnicity, nationality, race, GENDER, SEXUAL PREFFERENCE, religion or physical or mental disability. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO STOP THE SPREAD OF TRANS AND HOMOPHOBIA
