Media plurality in Ireland by the European University Institute’s Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom

You may recall recent reports about the European University Institute’s Centre for Media Pluralism and Media Freedom examination of media plurality in Ireland.

Journalism in Crisis conference

University of Limerick on Thursday.

This conference will bring together journalists, media workers and media theorists to discuss the role of journalism in the 21st century, conditions for journalists in the contemporary newsroom and prospects for the future of the media industry.

      Would that be like, a CONSPIRACY? There can’t be bias can there? No way man, I don’t believe it. All of yous are conspiracy theorists, including that crowd in Limerick.. Tin foil hat wearers.

      “there is also anecdotal evidence to suggest that some media owners have sought to influence editorial content” No way…I can’t believe this.
