I am delighted that Ofcom, the broadcast regulator, has found in favour of Channel 4 over complaints about the programme I presented on Ken Livingstone in January, The Court of Ken. The full judgement was published today and amounts to a resounding vindication of the programme and its journalism.
Press Gazette has covered the story. It quotes the most important section of the Ofcom report:
“Investigative journalism plays an essential role in public service broadcasting and is clearly in the public interest.
“Ofcom considers it of paramount importance that broadcasters, such as Channel 4, continue to explore controversial subject matter.”
