    This is bad for the image.

    It means we are no longer contoversial.

    Maybe we could get Sinead O'Connor on board to change all of that ?

    In my opinion, any attempt to support traditional print media at taxpayers expense must be resisted. Let them sink or swim.

I also would, as a matter of principle, be against any limits on freedom of expression on social media outlets.

    David Cochrane is on to a winner in the long run, imo and fair dues and good luck to him for his hard work and dedication to his site and recognising future trends.
    As I said to gerhard dengler last night, Pat (and, gerhard being gerhard, I'm still not sure whether his response was straight or tongue in cheek!) when I find yourself and myself in agreement on something I tend to think it's an indication that we're right.

    The very idea of a tax (i.e. State) supported print media should set off exactly the same alarm bells as the idea of even well-intended State Internet censorship.

    Given how the likes of Haughey and Ahern were treated by a "free" press, just imagine the free ride they'd have got had they held the pursestrings.

    It's understandable that every government must at least daydream of managing the news, but the realm of dreams is exactly where the idea should stay. It is simply not credible that any government - certainly any Irish government but likely any government at all - could resist the temptation to push once it got its foot in the door.
