Eoghan Harris: Mayday! A union leader has started making sense

I Scan the Sunday shows to see if the political media pack will probe Mr Justice Hardiman's criticisms of the Flood Tribunal's relations with journalist Frank 'Colombia' Connolly. Fat chance. The media pack prefers to beat up on politicians.

The media pack is now a mob. It gave even the grottiest Ahern critics a soft ride. It tore Ahern to pieces, all the time telling us that Brian Cowen would make a better Taoiseach, then it tore Cowen to pieces. Does Enda Kenny think it will treat him any better?

Finally I find a show that features Frank Connolly. Colm Allen SC calls the relationship between Flood and Connolly "a Faustian pact". Sam Smyth tells us he asked Connolly about it but got a "no comment". Just like Maire Geoghegan-Quinn.
