From coup to overthrow: The Irish media coverage of Portugal

Is worth pointing out that the RTE and Indo articles are basically straight rips from a Reuters piece on the topic. (Try googling a sentence or two from an international news article in Irish media and there’s a good chance it’s from the AP or Reuters). Just goes to show that the agendas of wire agencies end up being reproduced hook, line and sinker in Irish media all the time, without readers being aware of it.
