least thats the impression ya get if you read his latest tirade.
Rabbitte accuses media of damaging democracy by 'denigrating' politics - The Irish Times - Fri, Jan 04, 2013
funnily enough he wasnt shy at dishing out the doom porn when he was in oppostion. yet now a year in power later and apparently not only is his former activities considered bad form.
itll lead us to a dictatorship !
he only hinted at the latter in the times article linked above, but the poor lad lost the plot completely on newstalks lunchtime show today warning us that him and his being held to account may lead to a "strong man" coming forward and lamenting the patently ridiculous postion he's in where "anyone" can stand for election (ya know, like himself)
TBH im somewhat surprised this hasnt been posted about earlier but it was such a bizarre outburst from the man that i had to slap up a thread on it myself.
i'd advise anyone to listen to the pod cast of that show as clearly something is getting to pat. for those conscerened its circa an hour into the show, and i have to ask the question.
is a bloke with these opnions of the mainstream media FIT to be the minister for communications ?
what would it mean for us on the internet as he seems to be turning on his "friends"
one of the journos was joking at myles dungan (covering for pat kenny) earlier today that he'll have to watch himself least he upset the man. seeing as this is the same pat rabbite that lamented the loss of "defference" that the establishment got in the past maybe its not such a joke ?
