Irish Times, Friday 10th November

The Raw Notes for the Home News, and Business supplement are now available here.

It seems that adherence to the newspaper’s duty to its reader- to unearth and report the news they ought to be made aware of- has mostly been replaced with the easier task of just printing whatever piece of advertorial, press release or staged event is plopped in front of them.

Take a look down the list of home news for Friday and you only find one story that seems like good original journalism. And that’s a colour story on a TCD graduate and street magician.

The Business supplement abandons any pretence of a difference between news stories and advertisements. Supplements seem not to even have to pretend to do more than retype press releases, it seems.

This is very bad.
