Interview with Frank Connolly
national | arts and media | other press Wednesday November 14, 2007 16:14 by Miriam editors at mediabite dot org
Ireland's only investigative mainstream journalist?
A very interesting and insightful discussion of various aspects of Irish media - in two parts -the second to follow within a few days.
Although he makes no such claim for himself, it's astonishing that mainstream media responsibility for anything approaching thorough investigative journalism where Bertie Ahern and his finances are concerned has fallen almost entirely to Frank Connolly. As Connolly points out in this interview much of the information on which he has based a number of his reports was circulated to all the major news media and yet, ironically, it is the English Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday that has been publishing the full facts. Connolly refers to the Independent on Sunday's recent attacks on himself and on Eamon Dunphy and describes that paper's role in this affair - including the sequence of events before the general election.
