In recent years many media outlets have been pulling experienced reporters out of the north of Ireland and closing offices. While Dewi has highlighted today’s focus in the Independent on issues here, he missed a major factor that should colour any opinion on the value of much of the coverage now provided by English based media and their reportage/editorial – it had awful bullshit posing a journalism.
Hence a ‘Real’- UFF attack on a Catholic school was given the headline:
School evacuated as MI5 warns of growing threat from former IRA men
A headline so bad it surely indicates a publication using people with no idea on the subject they report?
