Shell to Sea complaint rejected

Shell to Sea complaint rejected
The Broadcasting Complaints Commission has rejected a complaint from the Shell to Sea campaign that a Prime Time programme broadcast by RTÉ on the Corrib gas controversy was impartial and misleading.
The programme was broadcast from Mayo last November and it included the results of an opinion poll.
Dr Mark Garavan of the Shell to Sea campaign lodged a formal complaint afterwards, primarily because one of the survey questions was excluded from the programme.
The key finding from that question was that 44 per cent of those surveyed preferred an off-shore processing option.
However, the Broadcasting Complaints Commission found that "the subject matter was treated fairly and that the programme-makers produced a balanced and unbiased broadcast".
