    Default Independent.ie and recent US tragedies

    Here are two screen captures from independent.ie over the past few days. I know both were reported elsewhere but they do seem quick to repeat things. I didn't see them headlined on any other Irish sites.

    Uh to quote our dear departed leader "What's your point caller?" Better write up the OP sharpish or it's to the zoo with you.
    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    An insult to our intelligence, wouldn't you say?

    Like the real motivation behind this thread.

    I too am perplexed as to what the point of this thread is? Has the Indo stolen content? Made stuff up? Actually pay Brendan O'Connor for his thoughts?

    Confused here......
    Let's all raise a glass of frog milk to the ancient festival of Fargaltide!

    I suspect the point is that the Indo exaggerates the loss of life in a very tabloidy way?

    Edit. In fact the first one says 12 dead in the headline and 2 dead in the sidebar.
    Redacted.

    Think you've hit the nail on the head there! Those explosions haven't happened at all! It's all some kind of IN&M/Denis O'Brien false-flag operation!!

    (OOPS! I'll surely get banned by Sync for accidentally mentioning he-who-we-shall-not-speak-of??)

    And they didn't even blame those pesky Shinners; standards have gone to pot since Sir Avoider was ousted.
