You may recall Friday’s editorial in the Irish Times concerning the ECB deal.
Here’s a refresher:
What does the Irish Times think? The newspaper that asks “Why?” published an editorial entitled “Frankfurt’s Way”.
It said the capitulation gains “more fiscal room for manoeuvre”. It gives Enda and Eamon “a political dividend”. And the task of paying other people’s debts is now “if not painless, at least significantly more sustainable. And the dreaded debt default has been avoided”.
…When the Irish Times writes of the “dreaded default” it insults those of us – and there are many, with diverse views on politics and economics – who believe that refusing to accept someone else’s debts is not to be dreaded. Politically, economically, legally, morally, it’s the right thing to do – default right back at them.
…”The pain will continue,” says the Irish Times editorial, and we must ensure that “Ireland sticks to its austerity programme.”
What is this austere “Ireland” of which they speak? We are not all in this together. The editor who stands over these words is paid €220,000 a year. How can he suffer pain from the austerity policies he champions?
All around us, lives are being crushed, real everyday pain is being inflicted and this is promoted by well-heeled politicians, media and academic types – none of whom personally suffers more than a slight inhibition on their elective spending.

“We recognise that linking is the lifeblood of the online world and we encourage our digital community to share links as widely as possible. Therefore, The Irish Times does not see links as copyrightable and will not attempt to impose any restrictions on the posting elsewhere on the Internet of mere URLs that refer to its content,” said Hugh Linehan (above), online editor of The Irish Times.
“We have no problem at all with anybody linking directly to our articles. However, The Irish Times takes issue with automated ‘scraping’, summarisation, and aggregation, of its content,” he said. “All commercial reproduction or republication of The Irish Times’ content is subject to licensing requirements that the Newspaper Licensing Ireland oversees.”

“Irish Times ‘columnist’ Jim Carroll (above) is probably a nice guy when he isn’t on the long side of a whiskey shot or fur-balling acid reflux from too much corned beef and cabbage.
“This kind of cultural affliction, coupled with putting an egomaniac with an inferiority complex behind the computer screen to write as if they know about their subject might explain his distasteful vitriol aimed at New Jersey’s Bon Jovi.”
And so it goes on.
A scathing rebuke to Irish Times journalist Jim Carroll, after he predicted Bon Jovi’s Slane appearance would be ‘the yawn gig of 2013‘.
By Glenn Osrin: “a journalist writing globally on such topics as Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and veganism”.
