Yesterday: Meanwhile, At The High Court
Thanks Postman Pat (see comments).
Mr O’Brien has claimed the articles in the Sunday Business Post were malicious and that the newspaper souped up and exaggerated a story based on a PwC report to Government about Ireland’s banks and their biggest borrowers.
Under cross-examination, he claimed Mr [Tom] Lyons moved from one newspaper [The Sunday Independent] to another [The Sunday Business Post], brought his files, rewrote the story and turned it into something else. He said the journalist blamed 21 people for bringing down the country, and stuck him into the middle of it.
