More filters. Sort order. Jan 02, Eldon. Very interesting and enlightening book about media coverage of the Irish ecomomic bubble and subsequent spectacular bust. Not a particularly easy read as it is written in a dry academic style. Still, reading now the pre-economic meltdown comments and predictions of the various 'experts' and establishment-stooge reporters is laugh-out-loud hilarious.

    Irish media in the dock

    I opine that in the long run Scotland will probably benefit from independence. He agrees but is worried about the short term. He points out that the first 40 years did not work out so well for us but the next 50 or so did. He points out that Nordie Self Govt from did not work out so well. None of these are likely in Scotland. Also, population of Ireland in was very uneducated and no industry outside the north-east which was lost.

    No oil either. Little multinational investment around then. No IT or modern comms and transport. Nobody travelled a long distance to holiday. It strikes me in relation to the vote on 18th that if the Scots could arrange to delay it or postpone it for about a month the Westminster elites will have promised them Independence in all but name such has been the scramble to ensure a No vote.

    Vote YES and be done with it. Does Irish economic development come quicker?

    What accounts for Iish economic failure in the early years of the state? Was it primarily the fact that Ireland wasnt couldnt be? Scotland is not as sectarian as the North but it rhymes a little. The question I would ask is whether the monority community in Scotland would be better under the rule of a slightly suspect SNP or under a devolved govt on a leash from Westminster.

    I will watch with fun if Scotland goes indept. The first thing that goes will be the safety net. I think that I may have used the wrong word or, rather, could have picked one more apt. What I wished to suggest was that what you have demonstrated does not come as any real surprise. Neither does the fact that there is a refusal to face up the implications i.

    But both the level of responsibility and the level of fault has to be fairly assessed; and distributed. The resurgence of the domestic property pages is a case in point. There may, or may not, be a new housing bubble but newspapers can hardly question those that choose to advertise with them.


    What we have is a mediocre media reporting on an equally mediocre political class, the latter responding to what it thinks the electorate demands or is, at least, interested in a process facilitated, if not driven, by PR and the multi-seater constituency. My own view is that the electorate of today is not that of six years ago and this is being reflected in the economic coverage.

    8. Certainly, the Irish Times has a corps of reporters, especially in the European capitals, that would stand comparison with any, even from much larger and probably better resourced news organisations. The Brussels correspondent of the Examiner also has her finger very much on the pulse.

      The Political Economy and Media Coverage of the European Economic Crisis: The Case of Ireland

      Their collective problem, I suspect, is with getting space because this is driven by the level of public interest to which sub-editors must react. One could also cite the debate, or the farrago that passes for such, on the forthcoming budget. This, it seems, is the way the electorate likes it. The media cannot be blamed for that. This media coverage did not come as a surprise either. I am linking to it just to make the point that none of the estates that make up the Republic will emerge from the crisis with any great glory.

      Thanks for clarifying. In short, those are the interests of elites, not of ordinary people. What turns reality upside down is to presume to know what people really really want.

      About This Item

      The politicians and the media are in the business of making a stab at it. In this instance, they seem — to my great personal relief — to have managed to get it about right. Greatest support is of course among Fine Gael voters, but there are also relatively high levels of support among both Labour and Fianna Fail supporters, and even 2 in 5 Sinn Fein supporters now agree that the policies were necessary. The idea that pain is soon forgotten when better times arrive appears to be very much the case for many voters.

      Oh, please, DOCM, could you be any more cynical? And your paid? Mercille just beggars belief. In Ireland, more than just about anywhere, public opinion is manipulated by the major media outlets that all march in lockstep. They take their cue usually from the Sindo, which in turn takes its cue from whatever The Master who is litigious and rich, so lets leave his name out of it wants.
