Democratic scrutiny is dead in the media

Dear Fintan,

 A great piece on the absence of democratic scrutiny in the Dáil in today’s IT, but you ignored one crucial part of Rabbitte’s diatribe:
“You are dealing with a very cranky media who advocate tough decision-making and when they get tough decisions they start piddling around at the edges trying to unravel it”  
Rabbitte might have well said “democratic scrutiny is dead in the media”, where it matters, ahead of the introduction of the Household Charge, ahead of each austerity budget, ahead of the establishment of NAMA, ahead of the bank guarantee and so on.
Best wishes,
