PCC To Investigate Observer over Julie BurChill’s Hate Speech

Hundreds of trans people and allies gathered outside the Guardian office in London protesting the publishing of Jule Burchill’s hate speech ‘Transsexuals should cut it out’. The article was taken down after it became apparent to the Guardian publishers there were enough complaints about it that they might be investigated.

The Guardian/Observer disagrees with the popular belief that left to run amok Bruchill’s hate speech would have remained on there website. Today The Observer’s readers’ editor, Stephen Pritchard announced he will conduct a ‘internal investigation’ and will publish commentary about that later today.

The Guardian will have to convince the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) that they did not intentionally publish hate speech.
