Dear Uncle Jayums.
Is the Irish Times really a newspaper of record? What does that mean if it is?

Dear Confused.
The Irish Times is indeed a newspaper of record.
It holds the record for advocating the most barbarisms over a five decade period of any publication in the history of newspaper journalism.
From rooting for the Russians during the Cold War, to justifying Chairman Mao's merciless enslavement of China, to legitimising African dictatorships, to abortion, to claiming Saddam Hussein was entitled to annex Kuwait, to euthanasia, to the IRA, to contraceptavist promiscuity, to assisted suicide, to telling kids they might be one of 57 different genders, to advocating mutilating sex change operations which don't work, to promoting the collapse of immigration law, to orchestrating media pogroms against the Catholic Church, to seeking to decriminalise mafias by legalising drug use, to denying the existence of a worldwide Muslim Jihad against the human race, to promoting conflict theory feminism, to insert name of barbarism here...
The Irish Times has rooted for them all.
In second place comes the hilariously named Independent newspaper group.
In third is the Irish national fraudcaster the Bolshevick RTE.
A lame fourth is the Beobachter Zeitung.

mountains liszting
through the dawn
choruses of birdsong
elgar the forests
with bliss
kiss the hedgerows
where bumblebees beethovening
in rosebushes
cavort on carousels of air
river mists
mozart the landscape
eternity dances
forward and bach

was the irish independent newspaper group capable of lending itself to the framing of deceased broadcaster jimmy savile on trumped up allegations of child abuse

The Independent Newspapers group has settled a libel case with the politician Dana Rosemary Scallon with a six figure payout. The undisclosed amount is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars range. A newspaper styled the Sunday World which is owned by the Independent, group slandered Dana during its reportage of a false child abuse allegation by a third party against Dana's brother John. The Independent group has released a statement admitting defamation in its still unexplained publishing of a groundless smear against Dana.
Before entering politics, Dana  Rosemary Scallon had a reputation as a Christian and was formerly famous as a singer.
She remarked after the admission of liability by Independent Newspapers: "What happened to me can happen to anyone. For that reason I decided for the first time not to let the untrue word stand unchallenged. In doing this I echo the same stance taken by Sir Cliff Richard, Louis Walsh, and others."
