Ruairí Quinn calls the internet a “threat to the media”
Minister for Education Ruairi Quinn yesterday told a group of journalism students in Limerick that the internet was a “threat” to the media, saying online media and online commenters should be regulated.
Quinn in a robust defensive of newspapers, and indeed an attack on online media said that newspapers could be depended on for “reliability, accuracy, authority and a willingness to accommodate different points of view”.
Quinn, who’s comments are covered in this morning’s Irish Times, referred to online commenters as “unaccountable …anonymous backstabbers”.*
