Listen: Ireland's Media Ownership Is Among The Most Concentrated In Any Democracy

: 04/18/2018 - 11:53

A legal opinion commissioned in the European Parliament has concluded that Ireland has one of the most concentrated media ownerships in any democracy.

The report finds that this situation is compounded by harsh defamation laws.

Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan says her party supports the recommendations of the report, including a reform of Ireland's defamation laws. She also wants the Irish government to set up a committee to investigate media ownership in Ireland.
