Sunday Press Review: MSM Inveighs Against Rossport and Anti-Fascists.

Journalistic Scumbaggery, Personal Vengence and Political Dogsbodies.
Jim Cusack, a man hilariously described as something of a Walter Mitty figure by a DGN organiser on the Late Late Show back in 2004, was back in the SIndo this week, with his ramshackle journalistic style to expose the lack of investigative merit behind Village journalist Scott Millar's recent contribution to Searchlight on clerical fascist Gerry McKeough.
Cusack Gets Personal Dig In At Miller
The Sindo at this stage it seems will stoop to any low to engage in its red scare tactics against the Shinners and on a lesser note the far left. If Sunday is anything to go by, this includes a new low of clearing the record of McGeough, whitewashing him as a genuine republican who left those nasty Shinners behind and now is being cruelly smeared as a former terrorist by those even nastier lefties. Considering McGeough's past, surely even the most sensory deprived of sub-editors could notice the smell of stinking bullshit off this one?
Only a fool could suffer the notion that this has nothing to do with Miller's recent criticism of how 'anonymous Garda sources' riddle Cusack's work with all the worth of soap gossip in TV Now. Anonymous sources tell this Indy journalist that we'll be waiting some time for Cusack's construction of castles in the sky to melt away as long as the SIndo maintains its role as a tabloid bitching session for power choosing to masquerade as broadsheet opinion and analysis.
Aside from Cusack's mixing of some vehement red baiting with personal vengence, there was a more serious smearing in this week's Sunday World. Veronica Guerin would be Paul Williams got down and dirty with the people of Rossport. In a real act of journalistic scumbaggery he accused the Shell to Sea campaign of being hijacked by Sinn Fein. IRA heavy weights it seems have been rolling in behind this attempt to gain political capital, to strike fear into a silent majority of locals opposed to the protests.
Williams of course is simply laying the justifaction for his own 'anonymous Garda sources' to forcibly gain access to the construction site this week as reported in today's Irish Times. When ordinary punters face the wishes of the elite down, they become extraordinary and surely must be controlled by some thuggish manipulative political masterminds? Don't forget how during the bin tax the Sindo claimed anarchists were infiltrating the campaign.
The first step in the process of re-pacifying the public is dividing it into 'good' and 'bad' protesters. The 'good' being a silent, law-abiding and largely imaginary public and the 'bad' being us Indymedia reading scumbags. So used to contemptously manipulating the public themsevles, the MSM, its pay-masters and their political friends really do find it quite the conceptual leap to understand mobilisation from below and seek out string pulling boogeymen to comfort themselves with. Bless.
