Balance and fairness in broadcast media

< 1 day ago38 minutes

This month, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) found that an episode of Derek Mooney’s RTE1 radio show had breached the BAI’s broadcasting requirements for fairness, objectivity and impartiality in its treatment of the subject of same-sex marriage. The BAI’s ruling provoked strong criticism from a number of quarters, including from the National Union of Journalists. The NUJ’s Irish secretary, Seamus Dooley, debates the issue and the broader questions it raises with DCU professor of communications Colum Kenny, a member of the Broadcasting Compliance Committee of the BAI, which made the Mooney Show decision and who, speaking in a personal capacity, argues that the NUJ’s criticism is misleading and misguided. Inside Politics is a weekly politics podcast presented by the digital editor of the Irish Times Hugh Linehan and produced by Sinead O’Shea. It can be listened to and downloaded via Soundcloud and iTunes. It can be delivered for free to you each week via this link. #iTunes Android users can access this podcast via
