Lost in translation

Seemingly the Irish Independent has misinterpreted a story about
a Polish waitress in Co’ Donegal

Deliberate or not?

Seemingly (II), one of the “journalists” involved in this has her own
Wordpress account
and, somewhat ironically, she lambasts a journalist
for poor reporting

Seemingly (III), you really CAN make it up.

UPDATE: I posted a reply to Norma Costello’s WordPress blog:

Do you think she passed the comment for publication?
Click on the third link in this post….

UPDATE II: Newstalk, whose website repeated the lies about “Magda”,
is owned by Communicorp, a Denis O’Brien company. O’Brien is also the largest shareholder
in….you guessed it…the Irish Independent.

Now how about this; O’Brien, whose media outlets peddled lies about an
apparent welfare scrounger, is a tax exile living in Malta!

Here’s a couple of links on said Mr. O’Brien:
Roy Greenslade in the Guardian
Guardian on Moriarty tribunal

    I’ve left a comment too. Not sure if it will be posted..
    Absolutely deliberate.. It wasn’t misinterpretation at all. Even google translate can’t turn a reasonable interview into a sensational, anti-Polish rant.
    Look forward to browsing through your blog 🙂

      Just had a quick look on Norma Costello’s WordPress blog and cannot see your reply.
      Well I never! It’s almost as if she’s not publishing comments because they’re too critical
      of her!

      I’m going to have to have a lie down after the shock of it all!
