    It appears to be increasingly acceptable for the print media to lead with the most unflattering picture they can find when spinning against a subject. A picture of politician covered in brontosaurus jizz is newsworthy, the set of three carefully chosen portraits of TM is not.

    I suppose it feeds into the confirmation bias of their core readership.

    1. Vanessa the Holy Face of Frilly Keane

      Whereas Jamie Oliver’s are staged portraits

      ‘wonder how that happened

      now I’m no fan of the torygraph but the chosen subject is hardly, what you’d call, photogenic

    3. The Old Boy

      As has been pointed out before, if you take a rapid series of photographs of anyone making a speech, a good proportion of them will make the subject look like they have Bell’s palsy.

      PS – Thanks for the information on TV detector vans last Friday, Mickey. It was very interesting.

        sure is embarrassing & for whatever reason (unexpectedly) its the women who give as good as they get with ridiculous uncouth shenanigans like this

        regarding the incident itself…rumour has it that she pulled a “do you know who I am” and it escalated, another example of a arrogant dynastic political family

        I fear she’ll get something out of it but I wish The Dean well in the case

        The party that purports to support Irish business couldn’t possibly stand behind a TD, who is actively contributing to the rising insurance costs that appear to be the biggest issue for a lot of businesses at the moment, by bringing a spurious claim against an Irish company. And in the course of that claim, admits that she, a woman in her forties, can’t be allowed on a swing unsupervised without a risk of seriously injuring herself and yet expects to be seen as responsible enough to be allowed to run the country.

      TD sues as a swing was ‘unsupervised’. TD would have been around 40 years old at the time, not 4. Does she need supervision in everything that she does?

      every instagram hun in Dublin has gotten a photo on this swing at some point over the past 5-10 years, the lack of litigation is telling

      Which justice minister between 2002-2019 thought it was a good idea to grant this guy a passport?

      1. Johnny

        Morning Eoin,he was legally entitled to one as far as I know,perhaps POTUS will drop him off at Shannon:)
        But looks like he’s not getting ANY passports for now,I’d expect him renounce his US Citizenship and move to be or get deported to Ireland.
