spam message appeared in my Yahú email account this morning and Our pal the Plank is centre stage and he is even called a Minister in the spam content down in the article.Plank and Dudsey are used as clickbait for some get richquick scam and the people behind it know SFA about who Plank is or what he is .Nice to see , and how will Plank dissociate himself from this scam without taking to the law as Gavin Duffy had to do with another scam which used him as a clickbait for scamsters conning the vulnerable public.



IIRC didn't he previously take a case where someone had used his image to try to sell a product or service?

I think whoever it was claimed that the Plank recommended whatever good or service that they were selling. Except Plank had never recommended any such thing.

There's a hit piece on the Irish 'right' in today's Sunday Times.
What strikes me is that it is written by a fellow called Mooney.
This lout regularly appears on Pat Kenny peddling crazy anti-Russian Cold War tripe.
Must be using a lot of lmagination. Because as we keep asking hereabouts where is this far right boogyman?
We can see the far left and watch them in action.
But that's not what he is paid to write about at the moment!
As for the Russians.
Bad boys regardless of what ever is the reality.

Deirdre O'Kane. Holy fuck, she's so utterly unfunny.


Just desperate shite altogether.

And, surprise, she's a left wing extremist. 'MeToo' movement 'not enough'. Jesus, batshit leftism is 'not enough'?


Who does she know at ORR TEE EEE that got her this gig? Must push ahead with the champagne socialist feminism!
Jayzuzzzz- that was hard core shyte- she has no business being on a stage

Pure mind poison.

"Metoo" is designed to beat men down and guilt trip them for simply existing.
Also to drive a wedge between the sexes. Its actually a war on masculinity.

Weaken men and weaken society. Tubridy is everything wrong with Irish society. I cant put in to words how angry he makes me.

from the online press reviewer magazine(www.Broadsheet.ie) today's edition and the Lack of coverage by ORE TEE EEE on the Striking /Protesting ex-Debenham Workers.
Absolutely disgraceful RTE were not at High Court today as strikers face a court injunction. Fits with scant coverage national broadcaster has given #Debenhams workers. Virgin media here.@ingridmileyRTE @rtenews @RTEOne @rte pic.twitter.com/s4gGnWYCvZ

perhaps the Peudo -Journos are too busy down the country chasing Racists and trouble at DP Centres and the mistreatment of Pseudo-Refugees/Scamster Asylum Seekers.Coloured people getting racist abuse is much more newsworthy than Native Workers losing their Jobs due to Mismanagement of a Plc Crony Capitalist company.How come the Ian Bailey( a single Individual involved) case yesterday had a cameraman and reporter down at the Courthouse but for many families (ex- Debenham workers) it is just not newsworthy ? Are ORE TEE EEE deciding what is more important for more people or is "Just selective topics for inclusion in News".This is the same crowd who decide Gay/Same Sex/ Ethnic Minorities irrelevant non-stories get pushed down the listeners throat whether it make us nauseous or not.Someone at News Item selections needs firing yesterday and Noose-Talk-Less-Advertise-More are just as bad at pushing the Liberal Agenda.It has gone too far and the people are just going on social media to get "the real News" not the "Promoted Agenda News" that MSM are pushing.


Oh.

I've had to spend a bit of time driving earlier this morning, during which I was doing some radio channel hopping.

One interview I heard was about the US presidential town hall meetings last night.

These interviews/ reports always descend into anti Trump rants between the presenter and the guest speaker.
Today we were treated to lecturer Larry Donnelly NUI Galway who, aided and abetted by the presenter, told us that barring a miracle Joe Biden is going to win the election.

Chalk that one down

There are no objective journalists anymore just a collection of cackling hyenas circulating around a quarry they want to kill.

That is true, but their guests and contributors to radio and tv shows are equally complicit, as in the example I gave earlier.


I switched to another station, and heard Eoin McGee financial journalist/pundit talking about this week's budget, during which he referred to the MOF as "Paschal" before quickly correcting himself by saying "Minister Donohue". Interesting slip.

Let's face it. Irish society is a bit of a goldfish bowl.
