Sir -- I was reading through the Barry Egan interview with some C-list Irish girl, (Magazine Sunday Independent, January 23, 2011), and came across a question that confirmed my reasons for not buying your paper. The question went something like this, "Would you sleep with Brian Cowen if it meant the IMF debt would be wiped?"
Is this meant to be journalism? The main body of the paper was overfilled with Cowen/Election FF talk, then Egan comes up with this 3/4-page interview of pure juvenile drivel. I'd expect to overhear some lech ask that question of a girl at 2am in a night club. The standard of some of the journalism in your paper reflects the standard of our Government officials. I will not be reading your paper again.
