In an article for the RTÉ Guide, Patrick Gallagher asks  'Are Irish newspapers as healthy as their Fleet Street sisters are sick?' To coincide with this week's transmission of 'Report', the article examines the financial difficulties facing the newspaper industry in Ireland.

'Report', due to be broadcast the same week, also examined the editorial problems facing Irish journalists and newspapers.

The article states: 'This week's Report programme looks at the industry and finds that, while our papers are a pretty accurate mirror-image of the community, editorially-speaking, some of them do face a reasonably serious money crisis, and that it's on the cards that big changes may come in the near future'.
