Press Ombudsman Peter Feeney


This morning.

The Press Ombudsman has said 2020 was ‘a good year for Irish media as print and broadcasting rose to the challenge of broadcasting through pandemic’.

No, really.

Via RTÉ:

However, Peter Feeney said there was a huge contrast with coverage online, where he said there was a huge amount of misreporting and inaccurate information.

Speaking to RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Mr Feeney said what people got online essentially was “pub talk” and although social media companies took significant measures to address it, he said it is very hard to address given the sheer volume of information online.



Mr Feeney said there were two categories of complaints relating to covid coverage: people who were unhappy with newspaper reportage, and felt that those who were opposed to vaccines and the public health programme did not get fair coverage, and those who were concerned about privacy issues.

However, he pointed out, just one covid complaint was upheld, which suggests that the newspaper coverage was accurate and correct.



Mr Feeney said that social media had been a huge gain for the public in general, but that it also “carries harm” and can be an aggressive environment.

Go fupp yourself, Feeney.

Hillary Clinton

RTÉ bias?


The latest Wikileaks email release reveals reporters, editors and contributors not just advocating for Hillary Clinton but apparently colluding with the campaign.

Emails show Univision Chairman Haim Saban urging the Clinton campaign to hit Donald Trump harder over immigration, the New York Times giving the campaign veto power over which interview quotes could be used in a profile of the candidate, the Boston Globe trying to time a Clinton opinion piece to do the most good in New Hampshire and CNBC’s John Harwood urging Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta to watch out for then-GOP candidate Dr. Ben Carson.

The documents also show Democratic National Committee official and CNN contributor Donna Brazile tipping off the Clinton campaign to a potentially difficult CNN town-hall question on capital punishment during the Democratic Party primary season.

Mainstream media outlets are often accused of siding with Democratic Party candidates and policies, but evidence of active collaboration takes the concern to a new level.

There you go now.
