Watchdog rejects ‘pyramid’ scheme report complaint

Story from the Irish Independent

Complaints that a Prime Time/Sunday Independent investigation into a “get- rich-quick” pyramid-style selling scheme was “unfair, biased and offensive” have been rejected by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) which found the content was editorially justified and in the public interest.

The BAI said the company involved was offered a fair right of reply and the subject matter was treated in an objective manner throughout.


The complainant described himself as a licensee of MyShoppingGenie but RTE said it was unaware of the circumstances of Mr McDermott.

The BAI referred to undercover footage of a presentation given by the company which claimed “you can earn up to $20,000 a week”, “a million dollars a year potential”.

The BAI found that the substantive arguments of the programme were evidenced by the undercover footage and expert opinions and the complainant did not submit sufficient argument or evidence to the contrary.
