Blogging in the Dock – Harris the prosecutor

April 2nd, 2008 · 9 Comments · Bertie Wobbles, Blogging, Irish Media, Irish Politics, Social Media

I’m searching for the audio on the soon to be legendary interview with Eoghan Harris this evening on the Last Word on Today FM – but Anthony at Public Enquiry has the transcript. (Blogs might have helped a bit and talked about it and done the sums but as for the rest I think we’d be found very not guilty!)

Matt Cooper – How do you feel about this?
Harris – I feel sick, I’m going through the death thing, denial first and then anger. I think the public is going to go through the same series of shocks. There’s going to be a lot of grief about Bertie Ahern.

A few days ago when I spoke about him here there was an extraordinary amount of vitriolic texts and this has been par for the course across the media.

I don’t know whether put in by Fine Gael or a group of sour heads in Sinn Fein. There’s a virulent group of people out there helping this campaign, especially on the internet, the blogs reached an incredible level of abuse in the last ten to fifteen days, and I mean really bad stuff.
