BAI says Code does not mean a presenter of current affairs may never give a view or opinion, but “seeks to prevent the presenter from pursuing an agenda or advocating a partisan position such that a biased view on an issue is articulated.”
The BAI states it will “promote a plurality of voices, viewpoints, outlets and sources in Irish media”.
Two pro-choice complaints were not upheld by the Committee, and four pro-life complaints were rejected. Two complaints of anti-Catholic bias were rejected.
"Other views on Ireland's approach to abortion ... were not provided to listeners.”
"You need robust rules and referees that will stick to them,” Family and Media Association warns.
