    If any Irish journalists were worth their salt, Ireland would be a far less corrupt place than it is.

    They’re complicit.

      Too true, prescient one, too true. Journalism now consists of e.g. Niamh Horan talks to someone’s ex,(who is now a ‘blogger’) about how independent and ‘out there’ she is. Alternatively, some drone talks to some Gaaaaah player about depression (and gambling ;-)). THAT is Journalism in this country.
