IPSO need to change Editor’s Code

31st Mar 2017

Sir, Your excellent interview with the head of Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO), Sir Alan Moses, was an eye opener. [ Issue 334 Media watchdog chief backs tighter discrimination code]

It shows that the press watchdog hasn’t much teeth to reduce the increase in Islamophobia reporting in the media. The most important issue, which you challenged him with, is about group discrimination when, say, Muslims generally are demonised in the media. Only individuals can take up the case.

The other important issue is that IPSO has not sacked the Sun columnist Trevor Kavanagh who broke the ethical code by attacking a complainant even though he is an IPSO board member.

IPSO must change their Editor’s Code if they want to have the confidence of the public.

Yours,
Hussain Ali
