One could justifiably say our media is rotten to the core and takes every opportunity to promote its own agenda.
Malcolm Muggeridge, a friend of Mother Teresa, said in 1987: "The media has become society's poison."
I heard Phillip Flynn, a trade union official, say on radio that the media are only interested in "sin and sensation".
An American priest, visiting this country a number of years ago, said "the Irish media are viciously anti-Catholic". How very true are these observations.
Listen to or look at the ads on radio and television a lot of them are disgusting. We are constantly being bombarded with all sorts of filth and violence, which undermine the values of any stable society. A lot of decent people feel the same about our media.
