Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's absolutely no in-depth coverage of NI in the British media.

Stories are always Sinn Fein vs DUP, and that's all we ever get.

tbh there's not a lot of in-depth reporting anywhere in the media. They're really all about pitting extremes against each other for colour and ratings. nuance doesn't sell.

You see it in coverage of islam. they never get on a representative of the reasonable majority, they'll always find some hotheaded loudmouth who'll start an in-studio argument, which producers think is golden. All heat and smoke, but no light.

It's why the media got the 2017 election hopelessly wrong, cos they simply told each other that Corbyn was a no-hoper and missed the nuance that people wanted a different economic approach that iss fairer. And judging by what I'm seeing now, the next election is gonna surprise them as well

keep to the Fen Causeway
