Deaglán de Bréadún (talk | contribs)‎‎ ( Comment -> I am an award-winning journalist and author who has been writing for national media since 1976. I don't make things up. Anyone with even the most cursory knowledge of Sinn Féin coverage in the Irish media knows it can often be very opinionated. If there is any objective and thorough academic assessment of this, it should reach the same conclusion. If you don't trust journalists like me, maybe you should stick to reading university journals. )

Deaglán de Bréadún (talk | contribs)‎‎ ( Comment -> I don't see what the problem is. Any objective observer and even some of the party's rivals will tell you there is considerable hostility among elements of the media towards Sinn Féin. This can create difficulty when one is trying to assess a news story on the party. (I have written critically about the party myself and you can read my critiques at length in my book, Power Play: The Rise of Modern Sinn Féin, published in 2015 by Merrion Press. )
