Another excelent article. why there isn't 50 comments of congrats per post i'll never know.

I was in the middle of writing a rebuttal to this when I lost the whole post. Suffice to say I disagree and think Browne is blowing a lot of hot air. I hope to come back in the morning and attempt to rewrite my post or at least address this further. Too frustrated at losing what I had already written!

Well my frustration inspired me to write out what I started here yesterday into a longer post - a Fisking, if you will - of Browne's piece. You can find it here: Press Council. Cheers for drawing attention to this. :-)

Browne's column evokes the spirit of H.L Mencken's famous dictum that "freedom of the press is limited to those who own one". It's just as well Tony O'Reilly never wanted to emulate Silvio Berlusconi.

Sarcasm?
