Moriarty backlash has hit respect for the law

In recent days, unbalanced media commentary and interviews regarding the Moriarty Tribunal report have corroded respect for the rule of law and constitutional principles.
Those criticised in reports or legal decisions by judges, and any other citizens, are entitled to express their views on the content and decision-making process.
However, if they want to challenge such findings, the appropriate place to do this is in the High Court, rather than the media. If they want to change the processes involved, they should work with or within the Oireachtas.
