Britiske Channel4 vinder over politiet.
West Midlands Police are facing accusations of “serious misjudgement” after their complaint against a Channel 4 investigation into extremism at British mosques was comprehensively dismissed by Ofcom.
Police had claimed that the Dispatches programme Undercover Mosque misrepresented the views of Muslim preachers and clerics through misleading editing.
But the decision has rebounded on the force after the broadcaster won praise from the media watchdog as a
“legitimate investigation, uncovering matters of important public interest.”
The production company involved has told Channel 4 News they are considering legal action against the police.
