offsite link There?s Nothing ?Scientific? About Climate Models Tue Apr 23, 2024 13:00 | Paul Sutton
On BBC Politics Chris Packham claimed "something called science" is evidence that the recent Dubai flooding was caused by climate change. But there's nothing scientific about the models that 'prove' that, says Paul Sutton.

The Church of England announced £100m in reparations for profiting from the slave trade. But now a historian has shown this is a mistake: the church never profited from slavery. Will the woke ever get their history right?

offsite link Profits of Doom Tue Apr 23, 2024 09:00 | Ben Pile
There is, sadly, no Big Oil money sloshing around to handsomely remunerate climate sceptical journalism. But on the other side, the green prophets of doom are doing very well out of the whole thing, says Ben Pile.

offsite link Happy St. George Floyd?s Day Tue Apr 23, 2024 07:00 | Steven Tucker
Is it time for St. George to stand aside for St. George Floyd? Or is there another makeover of England's patron saint that would make him acceptable to the professionally offended and anti-English crowd?

Trolling on Indymedia Ireland

category national | indymedia ireland | news report author Tuesday June 08, 2010 22:43author by 1 of imc - Indymedia Ireland Report this post to the editors

False reports of the death of Brian Lenihan T.D., Minister of Finance

Two stories posted this evening on Indymedia Ireland reporting the death of Brian Lenihan have been hidden by site moderators.

Two stories were posted on the site this evening, the first at 19.11, the second at 19.39, falsely reporting the death of Brian Lenihan. The 'story' was posted by 'Bethanne Killfoil' and a false RTÉ email address given. Both stories were hidden promptly by Indymedia moderators.

The story was also posted on UK Indymedia at 18.10 and has now been hidden there too.

The 'story' was obviously not authored by RTÉ journalist Bethan Kilfoil and would appear to be the product of a sick imagination.

It is significant that the 'story' was initially posted on UK Indymedia an hour before it was posted here, sufficient time perhaps for the author to utilise Twitter and other new media to disseminate the falsehood.
