Things have gone a little odd at the Irish Times.

Kitty Holland has tweeted a surreptitiously taken photo of her colleagues talking to Sean Spicer. I think it is Simon Carswell and Peter Murtagh.
Quote:
Sean Spicer and the boys having the chats in the @IrishTimes newsroom...It's a man thing


At very least it is derogatory of her colleagues and the fact that she is taking it secretly in the workplace is pretty..............weird.

Nothing odd about it. Kitty is doing her female journalistic duty -- surveilling the evil patriarchy right there in the belly of the beast.

As someone tweeted back: "outrageous, just hanging there with testicles on!!".

Yep, I thought Tara St would be a 'safe space'.

Strange piece here by Una Mullally about how the media is too conservative to miss the grass roots movement she's witnessing on (her) ground. If anything, the risk is surely the opposite - that the Irish Times expects a clear win for Repeal when there is plenty of unease in all communities, especially in rural areas, about what will follow. (I'll prob vote to repeal, fyi).

Mullally complains that the media is mostly male - which may be true in the senior political correspondent ranks - but is generally not at all true. She complains of how the 'largely heterosexual media' covered the marriage equality referendum which she frames as an LGMT+ issue. Does she want LGBT+ quota? How could that be justified?

There's a sense that people who aren't gay shouldn't have had as much of a say in the marriage equality referendum. That's mental. I voted for it (male, straight) and am glad it passed but all adults are entitled to vote on constitutional matters. It's a bit like saying men shouldn't vote on abortion. Or sterile women. Or lesbians.

I agree. It's as though the mainstream media are telling us what the narrative should be, how we should think and if we don't agree, we are wrong.
This referendum looks like a close call imo.

Can you imagine if a man wrote a similar piece?

We're replaced the Catholic Church with the MSM
