    I'm confused.

    I thought they were journalists.

    But it appears they are actually spokespeople for NPHET, HSE and the government.

    Is this really journalism?

    Very few journalists in this country actually practice journalism.

    2007: The house prices it will crash and we are doomed forever
    2010: Think he did farming here, we are doomed though

    2016: Weather storms, we are doomed

    Huge cheerleaders for NPHET.....embarrassing watching them spew out the words of holohan etc like it is Gospel....

    Zero challenging....Just a mouthpiece for the Government.

    Ah here....fergal bowers holds up a manky A4 refill pad and repeats what everybody is after hearing already.....he looks likes he's got 5% of battery life left in him and is just seeing out his time.....

    George on the other hand has form.....he was there for the economic crash and now he's here for the covid......he turns up when its really bad......take out George and you won't need a vaccine

    Very few journalists practice actual journalism anymore. They're all activists posing as journalists.

    Most of us want to hear what NPHET and the HSE have to say about Covid 19.

    George Lee and Fergal Bowers are just passing on the information which is useful to us.

    As for the Government they are elected to run the country so I suppose we need to hear from them too.

    Not a Covid related thread at all.

    Just an excuse for an attack on journalism.

    I blame him for that stupid Fake News trope.

    On the plus side he has some nice hotels.

    George Lee speaks the truth.

    It is just that the Comical Ali terrible statisticians on the main thread don't like it.

    Simple as that.

    I was of course being knowing/ironic ;)

    Some people have trouble understanding the difference between a journalist and a reporter and what their primary roles are and yes Trumpism has fouled the entire discourse while significantly lowering the QI of boards
