Dispatches cleared by OFCOM, again

Martin Bright’s Dispatches documentary, The Court of Ken, was the subject of a number of complaints to OFCOM, none of them brought by Ken Livingstone himself.

They have all been dismissed by the regulator, which took the view that:

“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.” 

Quite right too.
