THE Government has backed former Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger to remain as a member of the commission examining the future of Irish media despite calls from IRA abuse victim Máiría Cahill for his removal.

In a statement, Media Minister Catherine Martin said she, along with the Taoiseach Micheál Martin, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and Green Party leader Eamon Ryan, had come to the view that Mr Rusbridger should remain a member of the Future of Media Commission.
