    Default TV3 ordered to say sorry for Browne's anti-Israeli remarks


    "TV3 will be forced to issue an apology on air after presenter Vincent Browne described Israel as a "cancer in foreign affairs" on his weeknight programme.

    The complaint has been upheld by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), which has stated that an item on 'Tonight with Vincent Browne' that featured the host's remarks "failed to meet the requirement for fair, objective and impartial treatment of news and current affairs".

    The BAI found that Mr Browne's comments on October 23, 2012, were not balanced by other contributions.
    How does one 'balance' that? By accusing the Palestinians of being a Cancer too?

    There is plenty of criticism of Israeli policy, especially in Israel itself. There are plenty of other States that don't tolerate criticism, but you don't see threads posted about them on this site.
