The skepticism is so well thought out on this thread. The Media Literacy Index is bad because Bulgaria, Balkans, Soros.
After claiming that there are fake parts, you can't actually show me the fake parts. So not only would your claim not stand up in an "independent court", you don't even have one shred of evidence to defend yourself. Oooops.If I am going to show you the fake parts, this issue will grow longer and will end up with no results at all. Because you will reject anything does not fit with your personal interests, maybe I will also do the same thing.
Any news is fake as long as its not proven in an independent court. Recently Britain banned the license of Al Arabiya for "producing fake news" while British news agencies producing fake news all day long in accordance with the interest of the government.
The index isn't about evaluating the quality of the local media and in any case, many people get their news from international sources.Did anyone else notice that the Disclosures tribunal was the 7th story on the 9 o'clock news last night? RTE are an absolute disgrace
Not necessarily, there's a difference between being hoodwinked, and identifying a spoofer when you hear one.... but nodding, winking and and agreeing to a fictional narrative as long as it comes with enough mutual back scratching.If this means that the people are ignoring the DOBlin media (which ignores scandals) then this is to be welcomed. Because there is a stinking pile of manure in Irish media. In it's largest entity. It is "front and centre".
I went to the link, and I found out that it indicates the opposite. It ignores the stinking mess.
IN FACT IT ENDORSES THE STINK IN THE IRISH MEDIA.
No wonder chancers like Meehaul [the developers money was just resting in the wife's account ] Martin feels optimistic about their chances.
No wonder Lowry is not in prison.
No wonder Dinny gets so many debt write downs, while the taxpayers get none, even though he is a tax non dom.
No wonder the latest debacle of data theft, and control, gets downplayed, behond such important events as fodder, and McGregor's chums throwing a sack-trolly through a bus window.
No wonder that Gemma Doherty got sacked for telling the truth....and never got asked by any Irish media outlet for her skills, having to run to Murdoch's Sunday Times instead.
And then there is Noosetalk's blue brigade, with such proven liars as SCarey.
Ireland's corrupt, compromised media suggests that there is something desperately missing from the index used. The index itself might even be "fake news" on account of it's assessment of Ireland's media. It is a stamp of approval for a very corrupt media sector, in a very corrupt country.
So corrupt, that the people have to read UK headquartered newspapers to find out what is going on, in their own country.
This is hilarious. :lol: :lol:I don't believe this. The Irish population have always been controlled and told what to do and think; first by the English, then the Church, then two Civil War parties and now by the media. Irish people can only really think and act independently when they leave the country to make their lives elsewhere.
The Irish media are part of a small but very controlling cabal who put their own interests first. This includes the political and business Establishments and they all look after their own. Most of them went to the same private schools, their kids go there as well, they play in the same golf clubs and drink in the same private clubs and bars. They are rabidly right wing, anti trade union, partitionist and determined to make Paddy and Bridget serve their interests.
The antics of the Irish media towards the North have been nothing short of a national disgrace. They have spent 40 years lambasting and blaming the Nationalist community for the conflict and their own predicament. They have totally ignored and buried their heads on British State murder in both parts of the island from the Dublin/Monaghan and the assassination of 100's of innocent Irish civilians by British State forces and their Loyalist satellites. They are cowardly invertebrates who stand condemned for what they are. Sadly and to their shame also the Irish public have swallowed and bought in to most of this too.
I appreciate you putting up the facts to make it clear, but I'd actually question the assumptions that they are making.See, you're asking the right questions ....
It's based on the following predictors, rather than any direct test of people apparently.
Reading literacy levels are the single biggest factor.
You can always quibble over details, but it sounds reasonable enough to me.
