(Pet hate of mine)
There is ALOT of coverage on TV about the USA election and there has been for long time now.
RTE and TV3 are doing election specials into the night as of course are the UK media agencies (dont know about TG4)
Question though: Next year Germany will elect a new parliament
Weather or not to continue with the present CDU led coalition or to embrace the SDP
Like it or not that election will be very important to us (especially if we are sill in the bailout)
and will have much more of a direct effect on Ireland
Will or should irish media offer as much attention to that election as with the US and if not why not
