OVER the next few days, the media spotlight here will likely be focused on events in America. As the McCartney sisters prepare to meet President Bush, Gerry Adams is also packing his bags for the States. With US opinion outraged by the McCartney murder, Adams is probably in for a tough time. It will be interesting to see how a US audience reacts to Adams, as they adjust to seeing Sinn Fein attacked, rather than praised, in their media. Is damage limitation already under way, as Anne McCabe might suggest? Will it be presented as a media battle between the family and the politician? We’ll soon find out.

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.
