A footnote to yesterday’s ‘there is no plan’ story.

Almost all of the speakers asked Mr Rabbitte if there was anything the Government could do to bring an end to what they felt was a continuous cycle of negative media coverage, particularly in national newspapers.

Mr Rabbitte is said to have replied that newspaper editors had been “called in” but that they had explained that they, too, were under business pressures. He is said to have remarked: “The more you try to influence them the worse they get”.
