Pre-EU Mayday Press Propaganda! Oh YES! - Associated Newspapers in Ireland

16-02-2004 18:42

front page IoS

(and the tricky covert art of infiltrating open meetings!>>>)

But seriously, this is an important topic, and it's high time more corporate journalists spoke out against this kind of so called journalism.
