Canadian Papers Reject Press Council

By: Roy Greenslade | Guardian.co.uk

A group of Canadian newspapers have withdrawn from the Ontario press council (OPC) complaining about the watchdog’s “politically correct mentality”.

Sun Media, the country’s largest newspaper publisher, will remove its 27 titles from scrutiny, including the popular tabloid, the Toronto Sun.

A Sun Media spokesman explained: “The editorial direction of our newspapers, especially our urban tabloids, is incompatible with a politically correct mentality that informs OPC thinking, in the selection of cases it hears, and the rulings it renders.”
