The lesson of the past few days has been: Stop reading Irish sources for news on whats happening in Ireland.
+1 flippin' million
The media here is far too cosy with the political class.

agreed. They've failed the Irish people abysmally, repeating FF talking points as fact.

It will be interesting to observe which media organisations are using terms such as bailout, overdraft, loan, contingency fund or whatever yer having yerself. Media outlets ALL have an agenda - that agenda may be fear driven (like RTE getting a phonecall instructing them to settle the Flynn episode) or maybe the auld licence fee might reduce.

Individual hacks also have agendas - it could be to end up in the spin department of a political party. It could be to feed from the scraps that droppeth from the masters' table.

Other than the likes of Kerrigan, Ross, Browne, I too have begun to look further afield to find out whats happening on our own doorstep.

This shower of Government fvckers, supported by their media cheerleaders in whatever form have lied from day one about figures, the state of the economy, what's going on. What the EU/ECB/IMF today has demonstrated is that tomfoolery might work on the Irish thickos but it won't wear in Europe.

Anyone thinking the Irish media is giving a balanced view on the coming fall of our nation needs a serious kick up the arse. Check the international media if you need a heads up on what's going on folk.

Maybe we shopuld all refer to it as a "digout", kills two birds with one stone.
No, if they were giving us the money for nothing without any expectation of ever getting anything in return, even a few favours or winks and nods, that would be a digout...

Great. So its not a bailout. Thank God for that. So does this mean we keep our sovereignty and that tha budget won't be that bad after all?

I knew we as a country used the incorrect term in September 2008 when we gave the bank gaurantee. Its just a loan and all banks are going to repay every single Irish taxpayers. Time for a party me thinks......

They're both paid for by the same people.

There's a disturbing anti-semantic element in this discussion.

Clowen on RTE just a couple of minutes ago:

Central Bank Governor expects loan offer - RT News

This afternoon, Taoiseach Brian Cowen said the Central Bank Governor is entitled to give his view of the outcome of talks with European officials and the IMF.
However, he said his responsibility is to get the best possible outcome for the country and taxpayers.
He denied he was talking in riddles and says he is discharging his job responsibly.
Seriousy, this man needs to be sectioned, now, he is a danger to himself and others.
