Media backing of Budget shameful

AS a journalist of many years, I am appalled that every daily and Sunday newspaper in Ireland has unashamedly endorsed the tyrannical Budget just passed, which will destroy so many hopes and dreams, quite apart from allowing the banks -- the real owners of Ireland -- to throw tens of thousands on to the streets.

The so-called 'Fourth Estate' is now comprised of scared little rabbits who knock each other over in order to get their own 'acceptable' establishment opinions published, rather than being the voice of the voiceless.

We might as well just watch Fox News -- there is no difference.
