The Irish Indo is back to its old tricks of propaganda, and speculation. Rather than journalism concerned with getting at the truth of whats happening in Ireland, its content to begin the damaging speculation and obsession about 'property' again. Why you've already missed the boat as this property cycle nears its end - National News - Independent.ie

This article is such an obvious and partisan bit of propaganda that no one is even prepared to put their name to it...

This the shameful state of Irish Journalism, the journalists that are supposed to be an integral part of a functioning democracy... shame, shame, shame.....

Ironic considering the blistering attacks on ''faceless'' social media in the last week by aspects of the press.

How can the Editor allow such propaganda - the facts are - nearly 120,000 mortgages in negative equity, nearly 50,000 buy to lets in trouble, and how many personal borrowers that have had the 'can kicked down the road' - my forecast for property in 2013 - further drops in value - another 10% - a few bargains will be sold which will be used to hype it up again. Look when the new Insolvency Act commences the true picture will begin to be seen - credit card debt, Credit Unions, - this depression is going to continue.....( I am so sorry to have to say)

It's a great article to demonstrate deceitful arguments - calls to authority, selective statistics, ignores context of end of tax relief, using once offs to point to the general, use of quotes by vested interests etc.

The comments are far superior to the article.

If anyone has bought the printed edition, I wonder does the "journalist's" name appear?

Me feels an enhanced property supplement coming on. Double spreads of full colour property porn: just the ticket to increase the revenue.

Remember in a short space of time there will be people emerging from the new "bankruptcy lite" scam and frothing to jump into the market, stirred up again by this type of propaganda.

Why would anyone want a return of a property bubble or prices so high that the average two income family couldn't afford??????? We have one of the highest gas/ electrity prices in the EU, high cost of motoring, insurance( house , life , car and health) which also has to be paid from a lower wage stretching further. It seem some would like to see a false dawn more often.

Advertising revenue for 'newspapers' such as the Indo.

I would love another bubble. The last one was great crack and all my friends in the construction industry were earning good money.

Most people don't. The Indo and the Sindo are sold at a loss to pubs, hotels and cafes where it is basically an adsheet.

Well, of course the Indo will promote property ownership, the more property owners the more PropTax comes into Gov't coffers. Gov't get more taxes, Indo sells more papers.
