When the Charleton Report was released it appears the queue of people claiming they’ve been vindicated is longer than the Donut queue in Blanchardstown. But as our guest in the tortoise shack, writer and award winning journalist Mick Clifford, points out there’s a difference between being vindicated and not being excoriated.
Mick takes us through the report and busts some of the myths that made the most convenient headlines throughout the tribunal.
We also get an insight into the dampener on investigative journalism that Ireland’s highly restrictive defamation laws are and ask the question why the powers that be won’t bring them more into line with international standards.
