      No – and I’ve no desire to read poo about John McGuirk either. This publication is the extremely poverty stricken, almost dead of starvation man’s version of Private Eye.

      Why don’t you have a think about why you hate it and then do another comment with the reasons in it

        This is broadsheet – we just shout insults at each other.

          Its remarkable that you spend so much time on here if thats how you feel.

        Fair enough. I withdraw my intemperate remarks and urge all and sundry to purchase Phoenix Magazine – as many copies as you can afford.

      If north and south Korea can resolve their issues it shows the fact the Irish cannot well enough said

        I think you’ll find it’s a joke about Sasamach david.

        Oh, gabh mo leithscéal. Rinne mé dearmad. Cheapaim go faigheann tú amach go bhfuil said ag magadh faoi Sasamach david.

    They do good work bringing certain elements of Irish political life to light that the mainstream papers wouldn’t dare to touch. I’m glad it exists.

      +1 The Phoenix magazine often shines a light where redacted’s own personal minions and other manufactured consent flying monkeys wouldn’t dare investigate.

    In The Phoenix journalists use unsigned articles to get at politicians and businessmen they particularly dislike. If you don’t like that kind of magazine you can always read wholesome publications like Ireland’s Own, the Sacred Heart Messenger or The Beano. I only read Hello! and Cosmopolitan if I’m in a doctor’s waiting room.

    Uh oh, what are they saying about Filmbase? Has someone been caught with his fingers in the till?

    When was the last – if ever – time that the Phoenix broke a major story? There’s no Paul Foot there, the funnies, craic and codology are the opposite, and it’s the same old Fianna Failers/Shinners at the keyboards with the usual “military/political” bedroom Airfix-making experts chucking in their tuppenceworth about Israel etc.

    Ireland is just too small for any serious investigate reporting satire because a) the author will know/be related to the subject matter and b) it will inevitably be about an advertiser.

    Just look at the ads for financial and professional services in The Phoenix….

    Mulcahy is an FF blueblood.
