Bruce Arnold: We need more regulation to define role of President

David Norris's candidacy for the Presidency is in serious jeopardy on account of his outspoken views on sexuality, both in the interview with Helen Lucy Burke, in 'Magill' magazine, and in the more recent interview with Jason O'Toole, published last Thursday.
How the 'Magill' interview came to be written and published, after strenuous attempts to dissuade Norris from some of its more extreme statements, has been scrupulously explained by John Waters, who was consulting editor at the time that Burke interviewed Norris.
Waters also, and quite properly, castigated the media for its dreadful performance over Norris.
