Communist to Capitalist - Eoghan Harris fights the pesky RTE provos

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | opinion/analysis author Wednesday March 07, 2007 01:07author by Eamon Sullen Report this post to the editors

If Mary McAleese gets "more than 40% of the vote... I'll retire, I really fucking will". He didn't - another lie.

Fresh from smearing Manus O'Riordan, Eoghan Harris turned his ire on RTE's Tom McGurk – links below. In his Sunday Independent column on March 5th Ireland's mud thrower in chief says that it "behoves McGurk to be balanced". "Failing that, he should be fair", Harris continued.

McGurks’s failing? He criticised the Sunday Independent.

Also, McGurk was accused of going on the Buntollet Commemoration march of January 1969, the one that exposed the viciously sectarian nature of the RUC and of the northern state. The young protester’s heads were cracked open by the RUC and by their allies in the B Specials. The images received world wide publicity.

Some people have long and bitter memories that perpetually fuel their rancid politics.
Sue who? Harris didn't sue.
Sue who? Harris didn't sue.

Is this the same Eoghan Harris that used to run the secret Ned Stapleton Cumann of the Worker's Party in RTE? Is this the same Eoghan Harris who told RTE reporters he was tasked with training in 1987:

"factualism is fancy foreplay which never penetrates the truth. Factualism is media masturbation"?

Surely not.

Surely it can't be the same Eoghan Harris who said that news is just drama, that objectivity should be dispensed with, so that reporters can broadcast “personal editorials replete with value judgements”.

Sadly it is so.

Consistency is not one of Eoghan Harris’s strong points, with one exception.

Harris hates the provos. He hates northern nationalists.

He is a true blue unionist at heart, as he was a Stalinist at heart. It is because he is a bully at heart, who likes to taunt the weak and to suck up to the powerful. Harris will agree with anyone who will denigrate Ireland’s long struggle for democracy and independence.

Facts are immaterial. They should not interfere with a good story – they are “media masturbation”. Eoghan Harris should know. He is an expert.
