Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have stepped up their efforts lately. Indeed, the Sussexes have stepped up the intensity of their campaign against the British media. A motivated action following a fierce attack on newspaper editors. The latter being defined as an industrial body by Sussex. Indeed, the Archewell organization had given its support to a group of journalists. The latter had notably accused the Society of Editors in chief of “denying racism in a general and clumsy manner”. Recall that the Archewell organization is the campaign organization of the Harry and Meghan couple.
A decision that could greatly revive the controversy launched last March. This is, of course, the one triggered during the Sussexes’ interview with Oprah Winfrey. During the latter, Prince Harry said that “the British tabloids were sectarian and created a toxic environment of control and fear”.
“Headlines have been deleted and words have been distorted”
Note that following the interview with Oprah Winfrey, the ITV channel bought the rights in the United Kingdom. She was then forced to remove some headlines and distort the coverage presented as racist by the royal couple.
“The couple’s accusations were unacceptable and the British media have a reputation for denouncing racism,” said Ian Murray, executive director of the Society of Editors. However, Ian Murray’s comments had led to countless negative reactions. This notably led to his subsequent resignation as well as to a postponement of his presentation of the company’s press awards.
