is chairman of the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) code committee, which oversees the commission's code of practice that all journalists and newspapers are expected to abide by.
-MASSIVE CONFLICT OF INTERESTS, NO?
The PCC has received a record 22,000 complaints about Jan Moir's article about Stephen Gately since Friday – more complaints in a single weekend than the regulator has received in total in the past five years! They "represent by far the highest number of complaints ever received about a single article in the history of the commission", the PCC confirmed.
The PCC today stopped short of announcing an immediate investigation to see if its code of practice has been violated but said it would "consider" the 22,000 complaints.
-HARDLY A SURPRISE THERE THEN, EH?
