Anne Harris: O’Brien – the real issue is press freedom

Earlier last week, I had my first conversation (excepting a few words at the funeral of my husband Aengus Fanning) with James Osborne, the former chairman of Independent News & Media, who was voted out in an O'Brien-led boardroom bloodbath at the AGM.

In the course of the conversation, he informed me that in April of this year Denis O'Brien, the major shareholder in INM, had called him up to get him to "pull" an article in this newspaper.
