And rightly so. Only so much listeners can take with politicians dodging simple questions. After that performance I'd say her chances of getting re elected are slim.

Against my better judgement, I clicked on that link.

The Replacement theory. 
Philip Dickhead Dwyer.
Islamification of Ireland.

Do you live in the real world or just on the internet?

I’ve said this again and again, the MSM is far more trustworthy than the unregulated ‘citizen journalists’ floating around. If alternative media had done its job it would be equally trustworthy. It’s now just opinion laden and agenda driven guff. If you want to be taken seriously, don’t repeat the likes of Dwyer.

Rightly or wrongly obviously based on your own opinion lads, Ive suspended eireland as I think a time away from here will do him and the rest of us a bit of good. If anyone feels the need to allege its silencing his opinion or anything like that, then read back for many many pages in a number of threads and you will see he has had more than enough free reign. The posting of links and quoting from what ill call very questionable sources is not acceptable when they incite hatred etc. 

Again, feel free to agree or disagree with the stance I’ve taken here but, as John Lydgate would say…..

I don’t know about that. Christian fundamentalist David Quinn gets plenty of opportunity to write nonsense in the Indo and Virgin Media frequently have McGurk on its prime time show while Newstalk are giving Gavin Pepper a platform this evening. A lot of agendas being pushed between those 3.

Just saw a post where he repeated a rumour as fact so I think it's fair enough to bin him for a while

Agree on the agenda point. But inevitably they will be part of balanced panel (relatively), and in the case of the independent there is a letters to the editor column which can be used to criticise and critique. A number of years ago the times publish a glossary of the alt right, and it allowed for rejoinder articles, and the author appeared on an RTE panel discussion where there was a check and balance.

Independent media ultimately became an echo chamber, and the last place where critical debate (or at least an effort at it) is through the MSM.

Had seen people giving out about in on twitter. Looking into it a bit more it seems like he either made it up (the original post was from his account) or he was pulled from the show. It was meant to be yesterday afternoon so he obviously never made it on.

It all came from his own tweet and people actually fell for it. Not as hope that rat would be platformed

Mayo County Council votes to cease all co-operation with Department of Integration over refugee response. 

Probably the first of many in the West of Ireland to do this. The fact it was backed by FFG local councillors highlight's the disconnect between local level and the government. Local councillors in their elections will probably suffer unfairly as a result of the decision makers in the Dail.

Macron and most of Europe now undoubtedly shifting to the right. 

People shouldn't be surprised the same is happening in Ireland.
