Right of Reply

The Right of Reply Scheme has been developed by Coimisiún na Meán to provide for the correction of incorrect facts or information that has been broadcast about a person, where the assertions of such incorrect facts or information have impugned that person’s honour or reputation.

A Right of Reply is about the correction of incorrect facts or information; it does not provide for the broadcast of an alternative or contrary opinion. In other words, a person may not be satisfied with the manner in which a broadcaster has relayed information about him/her, but a Right of Reply will not be granted unless the facts or information are factually incorrect such that their honour or reputation have been impugned.

If the matter is one where the facts were correct, but not fairly presented, and was contained in a news or current affairs programme, you can make a complaint under fairness, objectivity and impartiality, as mentioned above.

A copy of the Right of Reply Scheme is available to download from the Coimisiún na Meán website here: Coimisiún na Meán Website.
