Did the media fail Ireland? (034, Sep 2012)

The final stop in our festival summer tour is the Electric Picnic in Stradbally, Co Laois and this one is going to be interesting.

Did the media fail Ireland? will look at how the domestic media (online and offline) has covered the post-boom fallout and why the real stories which matter so much now never materialised until it was too late.

The Banter panel: Simon Carswell (The Irish Times and author of Anglo Republic: Inside the Bank That Broke Ireland and Something Rotten: Irish Banking Scandals), Carol Hunt (The Sunday Independent), John Ryan (Broadsheet) and Enda Leahy (Irish Mail On Sunday).

Banter at Electric Picnic details: Mindfield stage, Sunday September 2, 3.45pm-ish

Big thanks to Naoise Nunn for the invitation.
