    Default Irish Daily Mail, nasty but needed.

    As much as I despise the tone of the Irish Daily Mail you have to give them some credit for breaking down the cosy cartel in Irish media.. just read these puff pieces in the Irish Times & Indo followed by Broadsheet's snap of the Mail story and compare and contrast:

    Denis O'Brien and chums organise a celebration of BOD.. no harm there.. but who do they invite, only Seanie Fitzpatrick.

    ‚€™A roomful of Paddies, a free bar and the future king of England. It‚€™s going to be messy‚€™ - Rugby News | Rugby Results, Fixtures & Tables | The Irish Times - Tue, Mar 19, 2013

    Prince William makes special appearance at BOD

    Meanwhile, At The Grosvenor House Hotel | Broadsheet.ie

    The fact that the Indo uses the phrase "the Great and the Good" in respect of Seanie Fitz is too sad a reflection on our sick state.

    Why is it important whether Seanie Fitz attended O'Driscolls dinner?

    I think it is newsworthy that an event organised by our biggest media mogul includes a pariah like Seanie.

    The Golden Circles haven't gone away you know.

    If it is newsworthy to report the other attendees why ignore Seanie?

    The Daily Mail has consistently exposed scandals and corruption in this country. The writers for other papers here should be ashamed to call themselves journalists.

    'Newsworthy' does not equal 'important'.

    Jersey shore is newsworthy. It is not important. Seanie Fitz attending O'Driscolls dinner is mere tittle tattle, designed to elicit a pavlovian response than anything else.

    Disagree, while it may not be as important as much other news, it is newsworthy in that it shows that Fitzpatrick is still sitting at the top table of Irish corporate society.

    You can bet Bernie Madoff won't be getting similar invites in the US if ever gets out of jail.

    What is it with some Irish people and fore-lock tugging?

    That and the pavlovian response of any FGer to any mention of Denis O'Brien.

    Funny old place is Ireland.
