Media bias a plus for Sinn Fein
Sir -- The Sunday Independent (October 9, 2011) has spared no ink in trying to vilify Martin McGuinness over his past.
But any reader worth his salt knows how absurd this is; Sean T O'Kelly was a prominent republican, as was Eamon de Valera, and Erskine Childers' father died for his republican beliefs. So what was your point?
Perhaps this is a form of journalistic revisionism-by-omission. If so, it appears to work on the presumption that your readers have no knowledge of Irish history.
