.Finally, as a Shinner, one thing I do agree with Paddy about is that there is no sympathy for republicanism among the political correspondents, though I wouldn't buy his notion of this being because of 'private armies'. Journalism in Ireland is a prop to the political and economic establishment. Anything threatening that, is a target, private army or no

There's a big difference between writing news and comment though.
For example, I despise Sinn Fein personally. That never stopped me covering their events or talking to their senior members in the same way I wo :lol: uld treat any other political party.
