Peter Robinson, Keeping the press accountable

Never mind the “unpleasant odour” rising from Northern Ireland’s libel law (and the urge to censor), there’s something a little stinky coming from Peter Robinson’s call for the media to show more support for Stormont. As Orwell said, “journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.” Surely we don’t need more photos of politicians standing around with cheesy grins, Stormont’s main output?

I look forward to seeing your captions for the empty speech bubble. With honest regards to Private Eye.

Oh, and spot the editor below…

Peter Robinson, Keeping the press accountable, Brian John Spencer
