An element of paranoia?

We write in response to Kevin Myers's article 'My narrow escape from an ambush by the liberal left' (Irish Independent, April 10) which attacks MediaBite and alleges all manner of fiendish plotting and ulterior motives behind our invitation to him to participate in the debate entitled 'Reporting War', which took place at DIT Aungier Street the night before Mr Myers's article appeared.

Mr Myers's excitement about our debate is as mystifying to us as it is inaccurate: names are spelled incorrectly, he skews the sequence of events he describes and misstates the context and nature of the exchanges we had with him prior to inviting him to participate in the debate.

Most Irish newspaper readers will be accustomed to Mr Myers's indignation in the pages of the national media.
