Taking a player like IN&M out of the Irish political landscape changes the dynamic for FG. You probably don't understand this either but FG went from having its best election result in the 2011 General Election to having one of its worst in the 2016. It is currently in a minority coalition government that rules with the permission of FF due to a Confidence and Supply agreement. If Mediahuis decides that a less partisan IN&M is important, then a lot of the favourable publicity for FG will disappear and FF could end up accidentally being the largest party after the next GE. The next Irish GE may be later this year but you probably haven't got any news alert e-mails yet.

    You are obviously completely ignorant of what is going on with IN&M and how Digicel's poor performance is intrisically linked to events and don't understand why taking O'Brien out of the equation was important for any takeover. All you do is cut and paste from news alert e-mails without ever understanding their content. I'm sure that it makes you feel important when you are playing at being an online "journalist" but the reality is that you haven't a clue about what has happened to IN&M and what is about to happen to it and, by extension, Irish politics.
    You still don't get it. This thread is not about INM's political leanings. It's about its finances. Just as it can change its political leaning, its financial position can change too, but correlation is not causation. Selling to Mediahuis takes Dinny, but not INM out of the direct political influence game. Or maybe you do get it, and you're just trying to derail the thread.

    Stick to spamming the US presidential election threads with your e-mail alerts because if you think that O'Brien is out the political influence game simply because he cashed out of IN&M you are really too ignorant to be posting on this thread.

    I didn't say "political influence", I said "direct political influence", as in overt vs covert. You're a journalist who can't parse. A recipe for failure.

    You still haven't a clue about the Irish news media. There are some things that are obvious to people with even a cursory knowledge of the Irish news media. You are not one of them. Go read the Wikipedia entries on O'Brien, the Moriarty tribunal and Communicorp.

    I've not said anything deep on the issue, so how would you know whether or not I have a clue?

    O'Brien still has a lot of media influence in Ireland, JMCC is certainly correct on that.

    We were discussing political, not media influence. They're not co-dependent. You can have one without the other, both ways.

    As I said, you haven't a clue about the Irish media. Political and media influence are inseparable in Ireland. Even the whole licencing system of commercial stations has its roots in political corruption and bribery.
