Mythen challenges media political attacks

The Chairperson of Enniscorthy Town Council has described the recent mainstream media attacks on Sinn Féin as being political motivated.  Cllr Johnny Mythen said that the selective exposure would undermine democracy as we approach the local elections this summer.

Cllr Mythen said;

"Main stream media in Ireland must be challenged.  The recent political attacks on Sinn Fein are relentless and purposefully designed to discredit the party.  They are working off political agendas and deliberately activating existing predispositions and attempting to make them electorally relevant."

"This selective exposure is dangerous and will undermine Democracy and cause serious polarization of the truth. A prime example of this is 'the weapons of mass destruction' lie, resulting in an invasion of Iraq, causing the deaths of thousands of innocent Iraqis."

 "As we approach the local elections the media will intensify their efforts to project the Irish people away from voting for Sinn Fein.  Anything they consider as undesirable ideas will be venomously opposed."

"The barrage of personal and unprecedented verbal assaults on Gerry Adams, his family and his party are a prime example of selective exposure, selective perception and selective predisposition.  This time we must not let the usual opinion leaders away with their political propaganda schooling.  The people are wising up to the dirty tricks and the well silvered palms of the hand-picked government agents and the tools they use to usurp the building of a prosperous republic , based on equality and justice for all."
