This opinion piece by Terry Prone, from the Irish Examiner last week, strikes an appropriate note on the culpability of the modern mass media in its own manipulation (viewers and readers don’t get away scot free either).
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
