There is a currently a very interesting and frightening case being fought by a Solicitor firm in Dublin against agents for the Irish newspaper industry. Basically the newspaper industry is trying to charge for websites and blogs and all the rest for posting links to any of their articles in their newspapers. They have already done the groundwork in their submission to the Copyright Review Committee in July 2012 those 15 newspapers asserted baldly

It is the view of NNI that a link to copyright material does constitute infringement of copyright. (Section 7 National Newspapers of Ireland Further Submission to the Copyright Review Committee) ... read full story / add a comment

As Hugo Chavez faces another election the capitalist media has gone into overdrive. Its message is that dissent is crushed in Venezuela. Yet from below comes another meme: the story of alternative media. Full text at link.

Today we celebrate the national day of journalists in Venezuela. Because of this day, its worth remembering a phrase that was written in the streets of Argentina during the December 2001 crisis: They piss on us and the press says its raining. This aphorism captions the situation of the social media today. Readers are reading, listening, or watching the information they receive more and more carefully.

However, the people of Venezuela have gone beyond that. Thanks to legal, technological, technical, and formative support from the government of the president, Hugo Chavez, and because of the determination of citizens after 2000, a national system of community and alternative media started to be born. Its a system which, even though it has a long way to go, it is a symbol of collective organisation and the satisfying of everybodys right to communicate. ... read full story / add a comment

Another thread speculated that recent attacks on RTE by the Sunday Independent were due to a generalised attack on the public sector, on relatively independent journalism in the publicly owned RTE during a period of recession, on disappointment at the election of Michael D Higgins and defeat for the right wing entrepreneur, Sean Gallagher (and the part played by RTE in exposing Gallagher). That story is here:

Sunday Independent that defended Bertie Ahern - on anti RTE, President Michael D Higgins, crusade

There could be more to it than that. ... read full story / add a comment

Very interesting discussion on Today PK (RTE Radio One) of how media misinformation, most of which originated during the 1981 H Block hunger strikes resurfaced during the release of state papers in 2012. Allegations that: - Bobby Sands told the Pope's representative that he would come off the hunger strike; - that Raymond McCreesh's family forced him to remain on hunger strike; - that the British agreed the substance of the prisoner's demands between the death of the fourth and fifth hunger striker; are discussed, by journalist Eamon Mallie, historian Eamon Phoenix and 1981 prisoners' spokesperson Danny Morrison. ... read full story / add a comment

Shell to Sea has revealed that RT is being compelled to broadcast an apology ahead of Wednesday's Six-One and Nine OClock TV news programmes, as a result of RT's biased coverage of Shell's attempt to build an experimental gas pipeline and refinery in Erris. In this specific case, RT chose to ignore the facts as explained to them by Shell to Sea around technical issues concerning the Garda Sochna Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) investigation into the conversation Garda had about threatening to rape two women Shell to Sea campaigners they had arrested in April this year. RT instead reported as fact the false suggestions of Justice Minister Alan Shatter, that part of the recording of the arrest had been deleted ... read full story / add a comment

RTE broadcast an unforgivable and totally unjustifiable libel on Fr Michael Reynolds. They broadcast on air an untrue allegation that he fathered a child with a child in Africa - despite his offer to undergo a paternity test. He took them to court and rightfully to the cleaners. Now RTE are subject to a Broadcasting authority of Ireland enquiry as well as one undertaken by the Press Ombudsman, Professor John Horgan. Who has ridden over the ridge to to proclaim all that is holy in journalism? None other than Eoghan Harris, and his newspaper, the Sunday Independent. Harris wants Ed Mulhall, RTE's head of news, sacked (20th November). Harris has been attacking Mulhall for years. Who knows what for and who cares, just for the moment. ... read full story / add a comment

rabble is a non-profit, newspaper from the citys underground. Its collectively and independently run by volunteers. rabble aims to create a space for the passionate telling of truth, muck-raking journalism and well aimed pot-shots at illegitimate authority. We stand within, and with, Dublin as it struggles from below against the ghost of the Celtic Tiger and the state it left us in. We support those who fight with a new world in their hearts and encourage those who create cultures that seed hope in bleak times. Those involved know each other from alternative media and street mobilisations, from raves, gigs and the football terraces, or by just living in the village that is Dublin. We range from people living and raising their families in the city, to community and political activists, to artists, messers and mischief-makers. We Are rabble. ... read full story / add a comment

Wednesday, 2 march 2011, at 7:30 pm
Outhouse Theatre, 105 Capel st, Dublin 1
Day membership: 8 euro

This film is said to have captured the feel of the roaring nineteen twenties, a decade associated with androgyny, dissipation, and life on the fast lane. Whatever your orientation, let yourself be hypnotized by the magnetic Lulu, who breaks the hearts of men and women without discrimination. This screening of "Pandoras Box" will coincide with the International Womens Day celebrations No, we are not celebrating evil women! We are paying homage to one of the greatest actors in movie history, Louise Brooks, in a magnificent performance.
