Death of a Model

Well the media (only) hysteria over the death on model Katy French seems to be dying down (no pun intended) at last. I'm pretty sure the whole thing will come to be seen as a watershed in Irish reporting where news was finally ditched and infotainment became the norm. Any bets as to long we will have to wait before the 'Runaway Bride' story makes for a weeks worth of copy? Luckily there do seem to be a few journalists left, Kevin Meyers sums up a lot of my feelings on story in todays article,I think he really hit the nail on the head. Too bad the rag he works for is leading the charge to the bottom.
