I must disagree with the Press Ombudsman, John Horgan, when he says that the Press Council isn’t just another self-regulatory body (13/1/ 08). The very fact that it has the backing of the NUJ makes me very suspicious of its role and effectiveness.

Let’s face it: the NUJ-controlled press is biased, prejudiced and narrow-minded, and always tries to direct and manipulate public opinion to suit its own ends.
