Journalists were cheerleaders
Sir -- Colum Kenny (Sunday Independent, January 30, 2011) stated the obvious when he said that 'we need journalists who can and will dig deep and ask informed but awkward questions'.
He followed that up, however, by saying that 'attempts to pin down bias in the media tend to be inconclusive'.
Where has he being living? Most of the media have been inside the Government tent for years and have acted as cheerleaders for the one-party State that has bankrupted us.
