It is interesting that Myers was only bought down because he crossed the line in a British publication. We have no lines that they cannot cross in this country once they come at things from a West Brit angle. Himself and Ruth Dudley E have been spouting hateful shite for years and no one held them to account here. The only time I ever heard RDE really bought to task was when she got involved in the Scottish Indy ref and she got torn apart on it - again in Britain, not here.
On Vincent Browne, I am not too sure how contrarian he was himself, like Eamonn Dunphy they go on being anti establishment while being very much part of it. Not that being part of the establishment is such a terrible thing, but to disown it while simultaneously courting it is a bit disingenuous. But the media landscape is probably better with Browne in it, then without him.
