Delicacy above and beyond the call of duty… August 2, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

…the issue itself is hardly significant. But the manner in which the media are making a meal of it is intriguing… all ‘a politician’ this and ‘a politician’.

Not named, so it’s not Clare Daly, then?

Cynical souls like ourselves might well come to that conclusion.

From hints elsewhere, I guessing the media might be doing the anonymity thing because actually the guy is relatively unknown and saying ‘politician’ makes the story more interesting. Plus he’s not Clare or Mick W.

and he is not a politician, he is a former politician

Is he someone who no longer holds an elected position having lost it perhaps on 26 February? I would say any Left or SF figure who managed to get arrested three times for drunk driving and assaulting a Garda over the course of one weekend, would not get the kid gloves from the media…..

Cmk- too true- Clare Daly, Mick Wallace, Martin Ferris. However, every cloud has a silver lining. How about anonymous crime reporting? A blocklayer was arrested today for speeding, a shop assistant was fined for breaking a court order, a office clerk has been accused of illegally downloading films etc etc- the class nature of it all would become very clear, wouldn’t it?


CMK - August 2, 2016

That’s a good point, fergal. It is amazing how the media can maintain such discipline in a case like this and yet every minor court case they have no problem naming the ‘accused’.

I really do think it’s a case of ‘a politician’ being used rather than the individual concerned as the vast majority of the population would be asking “Whose he?”
