Leave The Gazette Group Alone

Bailey Gazette

Further to the Lucan Gazette dirty tricks, Fine Gael politician Cllr John Bailey (top) used a mock-up of the Dun Laoghaire Gazette to promote himself among his constituents, without permission from the newspaper group.

The paper reports

“Cllr Bailey personally delivered a leaflet with a mock-up of the newspaper to the homes of around 300 people.

“The mocked-up version of the paper contained several changes to a story about Amgen and the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) in Dun Laoghaire including putting a banner across the story reading Bailey – The Local Man Putting People First.”

“All of the changes put Cllr Bailey in the best possible relief and made it appear that The Gazette brand politically endorsed Cllr Bailey.
