Broadcasting Authority - "equal allocation of airtime not necessary to achieve fairness"

Broadcasting Authority - "equal allocation of airtime not necessary to achieve fairness"
The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland has rejected a complaint made by European Elections Candidate Dr Fidelma Healy Eames relating to her exclusion from two RTE Live debates during the European Elections last year .

In her complaint to the BAI , Dr Fidelma Healy Eames said she was excluded from the Week in Politics and Prime Time European Elections debates (broadcast 28th April and 21st May 2019) relating to the Midlands North West Constituency and was only given a 1 minute pre-recorded clip to convey herself to the electorate which meant she was not able to reveal her ability to debate amounting to unfair treatment. Dr Eames complained that the criteria used by RTÉ in choosing candidates was unfair, discriminatory and failed to be transparent. As a former Senator, she argued that the broadcaster should have considered the Seanad when setting out the criteria , and that the the format conveyed a message that the candidates involved in the live debates were more important and were more entitled to a chance of winning seats than those involved in the pre-recorded segment . 
 

In its defence , RTE said there is no statutory or regulatory requirement that all candidates in an election must be treated equally in terms of airtime . It said it applied criteria which was based on past electoral record to achieve a fair and objective representation for panel inclusion. Eight out of 17 candidates for Midlands North West qualified for inclusion in the live programme for their constituency, those that were not involved in the live debate were offered the chance to be included by way of one-minute video clip and Dr Eames was included in Prime Time and The Week in Politics by way of a pre-recorded item , featured on a Drivetime panel and was represented online and in all programmes that covered the Midlands North West constituency.
 

In its ruling , the Broadcasting Authority said that .. "equal allocation of airtime is not necessary to achieve fairness"

There is no requirement for broadcasters to include all candidates in a broadcast . Equal allocation of airtime is not necessary to achieve fairness .The criteria drawn up by the broadcaster was based on past electoral performance and the Committee noted that the broadcaster provided clear rationale for the approach. The Committee was of the view that the criteria adopted when choosing participants in the programmes was carefully considered and applied in a manner which was equitable and fair 

The BAI concluded its ruling by saying it would be desirable for broadcasters to make selection criteria for debates publicly available although not a requirement of the Broadcasting Code .

Nice article Charlie,

I suppose in an ideal world the national Broadcaster would / Should include ALL!.

Though I suspect they (RTE) favour those paying or likely to pay to support them. In other words FF, FG, SF and so on are likely to get the votes to form a government, thus likely to financially support RTE.

Democracy has little to do with it, nor for that matter fairness!. It's pure self preservation as almost proven by the latest bulk of € Money set to be sent their way, with the announcement that RTE will be availing of the government’s wage subsidy scheme!.

To allow airtime share "based on past electoral performance" is in it's self almost admitting to it!.
#
yeah , i dont agree with the BAI ruling , i think the national broadcaster in particular has a duty to ensure equal airtime to all election candidates
#
i agree with mick , those studios are huge , no reason you cant fit 16 candidates in there. Have a stopwatch and only allow each candidate so many minutes to answer before you cut them off . this would be fair in my opinion
#
1 minute airtime for any election candidate is an insult , i dont see how the BAI can class that as fair while the other candidates are getting hours .
#
i think she is right in a way , is there any reason RTE cant fit more candidates into the studio ? , if they dont allow established politicians to WAFFLE for ages , more candidates would be able to take part and everyone would be happy

I dont buy it , O'gorman has been an lgbt activist for years but claims he wasn't aware of Tatchell's views , he is a well educated man with Phds and all kinds of qualifications yet IN ALL THAT TIME HE NEVER READ ABOUT TATCHELLS VIEWS , Tatchell a fellow green party and lgbt activist who has been in the spotlight many times over the years and he O'gorman never came accross his views about child sex

the question for every parent is simple . Do you want the state indoctrinating your child at school with their own personal world views . because this is what it is , the state now has a set beliefs that they want your child to inherit and they will do everything they can to get to your child including denying you the right to object

ridiculous .."she felt like a boy inside" , sure I'm a man and I dont even know what it 'feels like' to be a man inside , so how could she possibly know . As a man , there is no "feeling inside" that tells you you're a man , you just are one , you're either born a man or you're born a woman , its that simple

Great point Ronan, Thank You. Like you and Dublin Lad, I can not accept as pure coincidence the fact that the number 6 repeats itself in such a fashion. Especially when one considers that our Taoiseach and his supporters CELEBRATED the fact that Irish children would have their lives snuffed out, in the name of (above all IRONY) equality!!. Whether one considers religion as nothing but superstition or an absolute to live by. The FACT is Evil not only resides in society, but also in t
