Week 7 Lunch time lecture guest speaker: Richard Peppiatt

By River Reporter Nov 6, 2011

Journalist Richard Peppiatt became a story himself when he resigned from the Daily Star earlier this year in protest at what he called the paper’s ‘anti-Muslim’ agenda.

His letter to Star owner Richard Desmond, who also owns the Daily Express, can be read here.

The Star – and other journalists – disputed Richard’s claims.

Richard is now a commentator on media issues for TV, radio and print and campaigns for press reform in Britain.

Come and hear about Richard’s controversial time working for the red-tops – and why he quit at this week’s journalism lunchtime lecture.
