A new left media outlet? And a ‘national movement’? January 13, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Over Christmas the SBP suggested that ‘Trade unionist Brenda Ogle is planning to launch a left-wing news website as part of a series of media initiatives in the new year’.
This is part of a broader effort, according to Ogle, ‘to launch a national movement in 2017 that would seek to influence political debate in Ireland’. This would see ‘a daily online outlet with 30-40 articles per week’ something along the lines of ‘Broadsheet and the Journal’. And not only but also, there’d be a print version available monthly or quarterly.
How would all this work? Would it work? And this ‘national movement’. Is that a party by another name? Will that include TDs etc? Any further news on this? Any thoughts?
