  • Extended description

    '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'.
