Buckley slams O'Reilly
Independent News & Media chairman Leslie Buckley took aim yesterday at former chief executive Gavin O'Reilly (inset) following a shareholder meeting that approved the sale of a stake in Australia's APN.
Mr Buckley criticised Mr O'Reilly's recent interview in which he said INM resembled the "killing fields" after his departure.
"It was a very regrettable thing for Gavin O'Reilly to say. When Gavin O'Reilly left the business, the business was on the verge of collapse," INM's chairman said. INM could have ended up like Waterford Crystal, he added.
