3704/2018 - A Man and the Irish Examiner
Decision of the Press Council
The Newspaper appealed the Press Ombudsman’s decision to uphold the complaint about the on-line article under Principle 1 of the Code of Practice on the grounds that there has been an error in the Press Ombudsman’s application of the Code of Practice.
The Newspaper appealed the decision on the basis that the complaint had been rejected under Principle 7 as a fair and accurate report and therefore could not be held to be simultaneously inaccurate under Principle 1.
Having considered the matter the council agreed with the grounds put forward by the newspaper and decided to uphold the appeal.
