Public invited to question newspaper editors

Sir Alan Moses, head of the press regulator body IPSO.

Members of the public are being invited to question the editors of Northern Ireland's three leading daily newspapers at an event organised by the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO).

Irish News editor Noel Doran is among those who will speak the 'Town Hall' style event due to take place at the MAC theatre in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter later this month, organised by the press regulator.

IPSO Chairman and former Appeal Court Judge, Sir Alan Moses, will also be on the panel along with Belfast Telegraph editor Gail Walker and Alistair Bushe, editor of the News Letter.

Veteran journalist Ray Snoddy will chair the event with members of the audience invited to question the panel about all aspects of the modern newspaper industry.

Sir Alan Moses said three years on from the formation of IPSO, "I believe that a vigorous, and trenchant press is as important now as it has ever been."

And he added: "I would encourage anyone with an interest in how the press works and is regulated to come to the meeting and contribute to what I hope will be a stimulating evening".

The event takes place on October 24 between 6.30 and 8pm at the MAC, 10 Exchange Street West, Belfast. To reserve a place, email or go to the IPSO Eventbrite page.
