NUJ asks McDowell to withdraw Daily Ireland comments

The National Union of Journalists has written to the Minister for Justice asking him to withdraw remarks about a new national newspaper.

Michael McDowell likened the Daily Ireland to a notorious Nazi propaganda publication in the 1930s during recent criticism of Sinn Féin and the IRA.

A meeting of the NUJ's executive council described the comments as a serious threat to press freedom and a danger to staff at the paper by associating them with terrorists and Nazi's.
