Blogging about bad journalism
Wow! Not a lot you can say to that!
This is surely the moment when a newspaper stops being a newspaper and just becomes a sordid piece of mob-mentality propaganda.
No doubt that's another paper that complains of the moral decay of society.
Huh - I thought the german "Bild" to be rude and agitational, but this one is really unbelievable.
I'm sorry, I don't know those two men, because I'm from Germany. Could anyone explain to me what they did to deserve death?
Saw that yesterday in a supermarket here (in Ireland) and thought the same. They definitely crossed a border there, although many Irish might in fact think that about their politicians (since many of them are corrupt).Still, to write it in front of a newspaper... thats way beyond anything. Being a German myself I also think that even Bild wouldn't do that.
@maraizen: These are Irish Jo Ackermanns...;-)
Google ist Dein Freund, maraizen:http://www.insideview.ie/irisheyes/2010/03/they-deserve-to-be-shot.htmlFunny that they apparently took the headline from a blogger. It's as if they printed out the Internet.Print is dead.
wow, that´s unbelievable...i thought our austrian papers are sometimes extreme, but this is...
I guess Irish journalists like to be even less subtle than our own.
Incitement to murder, anyone?
just because they deserve to be shot doesn't make it right to print so. :)
Rather late to the party here but "he should be shot" is a common piece of Irish hyperbole. I know, I'm Irish, I say it all the time and have been pulled for saying to by English people (who I find a bit prissy on the matter, it's a figure of speech and a literal exhortation). If you think about it for, oh say ten seconds, it'll become clear why we might use such colourful language having enjoyed, in the last century, a revolution and war against Britain, a civil war and whatever you want to call the conflict from 1969 onwards. Quite a lot of people were shot. It's gallows humour.
